Cloud computing is 'one of the key technology trends of recent decades'

Businesses that are introducing cloud computing to their IT departments will be using "one of the key technology trends of recent decades".

That is according to Steve Ball, managing director of Cloud 9, who told freshbusinessthinking.com that mobile working is another key benefit to firms looking to streamline their everyday processes.

Earlier this month, The Law Society said that law firms should begin to embrace electronic working in a bid to cut costs and improve efficiency.

It added that email hosted through cloud computing could be among the applications that lower expenditure.

Mr Ball added that the reduction in outgoings, along with energy efficiency, are among the main benefits to turning to cloud.

"One big benefit to SMEs is that cloud computing is cost effective - instead of buying a large server that you may never fully utilise, having a cloud solutions means you can rent just what you need," he said.

"It's a much greener way of managing IT, and efficient in terms of space allocation as businesses no longer need to store server systems in-house."
