We use cloud computing to make ourselves more efficient and responsive to our clients
Not long ago, having one’s head in the clouds was akin to being irresponsible. The term was used derisively to characterize academics, poets and young lovers.

Today, working in the cloud means that you likely have an economy of scale that enables you to compete with companies much larger than yours. The cost of your technology infrastructure is lower than if you maintained a traditional IT infrastructure. And you’re much more capable of updating your business model, as you are not tied to people and methods that underlie legacy processes.

We employ cloud computing because it allows us to balance work between several operating facilities, each having access to the same information and resources at all hours. This means we can be more responsive to our clients.

Our total cost of operation is lower than companies that do not employ cloud computing because we spend less on our technology infrastructure, including spending for software licenses and maintenance. Also, we can cut spending and increase spending to support our true computing requirements, giving us more of a variable cost infrastructure. This translates into greater efficiency and better total value for our clients.

We have a higher productivity rate because we can accomplish more with less staff, and our people require less training because learning curves for technology and software are lower in the cloud.

Cloud computing enables us to closely monitor our progress and spending on major IT initiatives, thanks to the greater transparency that cloud computing affords. This has effectively lowered our barrier on innovation, as we approach projects with greater confidence.

Cloud computing has made us lighter and faster, and has inspired innovations in both technology and business processes. Ultimately, our clients are the real winners because of our cloud strategy.
