Cloud computing provides a way of accessing resources like computing power, storage, servers, and databases over the internet via a third-party provider. You no longer need expensive hardware to run your business. All you need is an internet connection and a pocket-friendly cloud subscription.
Cloud computing for business enables you to scale your business on-demand, helps you reduce costs, makes it easier for your employees to collaborate, safeguards your business operations, and much more. The fact that over 92% of companies use cloud-based services says a lot about the adoption of cloud computing.

Despite their size, small businesses are encountering many of the same modern roadblocks as larger corporations do in terms of technology. These issues include cybersecurity and IT challenges that small companies may be less prepared or equipped to handle.
Technology has become an essential ingredient for successful business operations, regardless of size. It is seen as an effective way of building your company, sharing information, and transforming productivity that extends beyond company boundaries. But with how quickly technology is advancing, many small businesses find it hard to figure out what technology to use, when to invest in new tech, and how to prioritize their investment to reap the greatest reward.
