Top Reasons You Need to Move Your Business to the Cloud


Cloud computing is a new way to store, manage and process data over the internet instead of your computer’s hard drive. Cloud computing is hot topic right now and will probably stay that way for at least coming 5 years. We are using cloud technologies in our daily life from Facebook status update to checking account balance on phone and more.

Cloud computing is also helpful for businesses to reduce their IT costs.  According to net, you can reduce your IT costs 30% by adopting cloud technology.  Many small to large businesses use cloud computing today either directly (Google, Amazon) or indirectly (twitter) instead of traditional on-site alternatives.  Google drive, social networking sites like Facebook, Linkedin, webmail, and online business application all are cloud based services.

Now cloud computing is replacing the traditional model of having software applications installed on on-premise hardware, from desktop computers to rooms full of servers, depending on the size of the business. With cloud computing, you can access applications via internet. It is called software as service (or Saas). Now businesses are freed from updating software and hardware. Just log on and get to work from anywhere at any time.  

There are different types of cloud computing services which cloud computing venders provide including Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).

Salesforce is leader in cloud computing which provides applications for all aspects of your business, including CRM, sales, ERP, customer service, marketing automation, business analytics, mobile application building, and much more. They also provide salesforce support services for their customers.

Top Reasons to Use Cloud Computing:

  • Businesses no need to hire IT Professional to provision the server or network storage. It allows remotely located employees to access applications and work over the internet. It makes easier for employees to combine on shared data.

  • One thing I immediately liked about salesforce is its customizable dashboard. It is easy to use, implement and access. You can customize salesforce application as per your requirement.  And without hiring developers you can do it by yourself. Anyone can make these changes, with clicks, not code. It supports all recent browsers like Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.


  • Salesforce’s contact management system gives you 360-degree view of your customers including activity history, customer communications, internal account discussions and even social data.


  • Salesforce provides you a big-picture view of each lead by tracking them all the way back to which campaigns and marketing channels they came from, including social media. This help to determine which marketing channels are working and aren’t working for you. So you can make decision in which marketing channel you should invest.
