You've probably heard of cloud computing, even if you don't know exactly what it is. Maybe you remember the "To the cloud" tagline used by Microsoft commercials in 2010, or perhaps it's a buzzword you hear often in meetings at your organization. If the latter is the case, you are on the right track. The reality is that the cloud is increasingly becoming a necessity in business, and those who don't embrace it are likely going to be left behind.

So what exactly is the cloud? In short, it's a virtual environment that allows you to store digital content and data outside of your physical infrastructure. So, instead of keeping files on the hard drive of your workstation or in a local server inside the office, these files are stored in an off-site server.

So how do you access this information? With proper cloud development, you can build a system that allows you to view, store and manage your data seamlessly without jeopardizing its security or your productivity. Mobility is now such a large component of the workplace, so managing information from the cloud on your smartphone or tablet is becoming more common.

Custom application development can be conducted to produce a mobile-based cloud platform that gives you the option to store your documents, files or any other content in a cloud environment, save physical space and reduce overhead costs. With the flexibility to process cloud data from on the go, you can significantly enhance productivity as well.
