With reports of remarkable growth (and glowing revenue forecasts), cloud computing seems to have taken a firm hold of the industry. There is now a steady stream of migration from the old server host models to this new paradigm in Internet and online business.

Among organizations, there seems to be a competition on how to better realize the promises of cloud computing as had been predicted. The enterprising ones are already even developing and streamlining it to extract more innovative uses. As a result, small businesses and startups in particular are able to deliver speed and agility, streamline operations, as well as improve other areas like customer engagement, etc. And to think that these are just the initial benefits of the new business model.

Reduced costs

The most obvious benefit, of course, is reduction of costs. Businesses save time at set-up because cloud computing becomes functionally faster than the rest, not to mention its fast recovery. Operational costs are also reduced together with the cost of setting up the system. You pay only for what you use, meaning the costs are directly proportional to your necessities. This lowers the needed upfront capital and gets the business going faster and earlier.

Empowerment

Cloud computing lets SMEs (and larger enterprises) deliver fast initial build of key applications, and add more functionality just as fast to help drive customer engagement. Moreover, these are all enabled with the minimum of costs and very little use of IT bandwidth. These days, estimates suggest that it is possible for SMEs to build applications about five times as fast as before. The most attractive part is that these would run at half the costs of using traditional software platforms.

Flexibility

In today's context, the best custom application development platforms enable developers to adapt applications to the specific needs of their organizations. These needs sweep across several business functions from email marketing to financial services to customers and more.

The focus, therefore, is the use of open systems (as opposed to proprietary ones) in developing application platforms. The open system enables the developers to be productive in languages they are familiar with, including skill sets widely-used in the industry like Java and Ruby.

Automation

With cloud computing, you do not need to have a team to handle system updates and back-ups every now and then. Automation takes care of these intricate tasks. It is actually the biggest attraction to the technology. Internal resources are freed up and automation helps in this release of internal resources that are needed in other high-priority work.

Reduced infrastructure

The system can develop complete applications without the cost and the complex business of buying and maintaining on-premises infrastructures. This setup speeds up the overall processes, delivering fast responses needed for an IT business. Moreover, the initial technology is easy to install. Another bonus is that the implementation is remotely done.

Future outlook

These days, cloud computing might be regarded as revolutionary. In the future, it might be considered the standard and state-of-the-art. Today, people are still concerned on some of its aspects, like security issues, for instance. The good thing is that the system is still being fine-tuned. Cloud computing might just be the wave of the computing future.

Cloud Computing is computation, data access and storage services. Cloud services are more reliable and environment-friendly.

The most important feature of cloud computing is that the cloud eliminates the need for each user to invest in stand alone servers.
