The authoritative Wall Street Journal reports that there are multiple ways in which  Cloud computing will change our lives.

The article goes on to list 16 sites. For the public, the Cloud will make it easier to communicate, transact and learn. For businesses, the Cloud makes it possible to expand faster and simpler to interact with customers and meet their needs, and will help businesses make smarter decisions.

Consider something like bring your own device (BYOD) for example, and how this trend has changed business ecosystems and processes. Introduced to many businesses at a time when the use of consumer mobile devices had skyrocketed, BYOD is said to boost productivity and efficiency. But while many focus on the value of BYOD from a hardware-savings perspective, it’s important to note that BYOD would not be possible without the Cloud.

Users could not access corporate networks and information with their personal devices if these resources weren’t stored and readily available in the Cloud. And they would  not be able to work from anywhere if they could not connect and collaborate with their colleagues. Cloud computing makes BYOD possible and is just one example of how changing business needs have led to an increased demand for reliable and robust Cloud solutions.

ITo make the most of the Cloud, businesses must establish long-term partnerships with vendors who are equipped with the knowledge and resources to provide the hardware, software and services required to meet their objectives. Staying ahead of the pack in this highly competitive market means taking advantage of the transformative potential of the Cloud. And this means using the Cloud for more than just storage.
