Cloud computing is exploding. By 2013, the size of the cloud is expected to reach $150 billion. Cloud-based applications are used for everything from customer relationship management (CRM) to marketing automation and even human resource and e-commerce software. There are a growing number of big-name cloud enterprises, also, including Google, Salesforce, Citrix and even the email marketing giant Constant Contact. Why use applications in the cloud? There are a number of clear benefits to choosing cloud-based applications over on-premise programs. The primary driver is cost: Enterprises can save significantly on both software and IT staffing by using the cloud. That’s because multiple organizations are essentially pooling their resources together for development and maintenance costs, minimizing the financial impact on individual companies. Other drivers include features and functionality and the ability to adjust your needs up and down each month, so you’re paying only for the resources you’re using. Security is a top concern, but many companies don’t realize that data stored in the cloud can actually be more secure than on-premise data storage. Find out why by checking out the infographic below.
