I went on to slideshare and checked out this article by Andy Harjanto. The title of the article is “How Your Business Can Take Advantage of Cloud Computing”. http://www.slideshare.net/Guppers/how-your-business-can-take-advantage-of-cloud-computing
Cloud Computing is a real idea that is fully working and being used by many professionals. Who would not want to be able to do work from anywhere and save their information and data without having to be in the office all the time? I would enjoy that luxury. This slideshare presentation helped me discover more about cloud computing and gave me a focus on how it is beneficial to businesses. Cloud computing can help businesses whether they want to grow and expand, downsize, and/or just put their information in the “cloud” for easy access and availability. Andy first started the presentation off by comparing cloud computing to the decision of buying a house and dealing with all the house ownership tasks, or renting an apartment and not needing to deal with all of the time consuming tasks that come along with owning a house. This picture really helped make cloud computing more clear to me and gave me possible ideas that I may be able to use later in my career as an educator and business owner.
