Careful Decisions Required for Cloud Computing

People who are in need of cloud computing services should devote time and effort into deciding which service they should go with, given the wide array of perks available, according to a published report.

Services that offer the innovative storage procedure are competitive with one-another and often exert effort to present attractive incentives, PCWorld reports. Administrators then become involved and have a say over how staff members opt to install the desktop for the purposes of synching with clients.

Data protection and encryption are two incentives to consider, both of which do their part to enhance productivity and value by demonstrating operative procedures. Online meetings, video conferences and other perks also are options that some cloud computing services offer businesses.

The drive toward use of cloud computing is increasingly important and decisions should consider more than only the price of the service. Key factors to consider are how and where users plan to implement the innovative storage method.

Forbes reports an Eastern Massachusetts consultancy said cloud computing is becoming increasingly importantbetween corporate tech departments and the business unit of banks.

Key factors that are playing a role in the decision-making process are how and whether the process complies with regulations and expenses associated with the effort to implement cloud computing, according to the Aite Group in Boston.

Private clouds, public clouds or even a combination of the two are options that can be useful and beneficial to companies, depending on what their needs are. Analyst David Albertazzi said banks very often opt to merge both public and private cloud options for their business needs.

“I think the new solutions are much better in terms of technology … and therefore they are being viewed as less risky,” the analyst told Forbes.

The innovative storage practice is growing in popularity as well. In July of last year, more than seven of 10 financial services representatives said they plan to purchase more cloud computing services this year. In 2012, less than two in 10 said they would invest in the cloud.

A Tunisian bank is looking forward to use of cloud computing for its business purposes, and the project is poised to deliver sizable perks and incentives for the company, users and others involved in the process.

“Benefits are expected to be reduced waiting times for customers, a greater choice of banking channels and services, and extending services to the nation’s unbanked and underbanked citizens,” an official told Forbes.
