Cloud Computing, SaaS
Cloud computing has certainly been one of this year’s hot topics. By June 2012, 74% of companies globally had adopted some sort of cloud services, representing a 25% increase from 2009. Such popularity is unsurprising really when you consider how many enterprise- class tools and services have become available to firms of all sizes, through accessible and easy to use platforms without the difficulties of licensing, hardware management, software upgrades and limited access.
For knowledge based industries in particular such as IT consulting, firms looking to control IT investments make the cloud an obvious choice. You and your colleagues can collaborate and access vital information on a number of projects from separate locations in a quick and easy manner that also provides real-time updates to the whole team. This means that there are less errors and mistakes, helping the project to be completed faster and within budget.
Having this kind of control and access to real-time information for your projects wherever you are working, through an ERP system in the cloud can make a real difference to business success. Your firm can track engagements and project progress with the kind of flexibility needed for a consultancy operating in 2012.
