Cloud computing has come a long way in a short period of time. Whilst the capability to store data in the cloud and perform basic functions such as email has been available for some time, the growth in cloud functionality means that businesses are now using cloud resources to run the back office, keep in touch with sales teams, order goods and services and drive new business.
It is easy to see why businesses love cloud. Services can be scaled rapidly, enabling the roll out of additional resource only when absolutely needed, thus reducing business cost. Cloud services also enable users to carry out tasks wherever they are – from the coffee shop to the motorway service station, making employees more responsive and efficient.
Of course this also imposes requirements on mobile connectivity. Often businesses advise employees to switch off data roaming when travelling to avoid the uncertainty around connectivity costs. However with so much business critical content relying on a continuous connection, this is becoming completely unrealistic.
