IS CLOUD COMPUTING FOR YOU?

Traditional business applications such as accounting, MRP, HRIS and database software have always been complicated. They have also been expensive to acquire because, historically, it would require special facilities and a small army of people for maintenance and support. There was a need to have a dedicated office data center, special heating, cooling and power devices and a variety of expertise on your staff to manage them. When you multiply these requirements across dozens of applications, you can see why organizations are jumping at the opportunity to reduce their hardware and software costs, not to mention their personnel costs and go towards this new trend called cloud computing.
