Ease of use, unlimited storage, and access from anywhere in the world – the benefits of cloud computing are many; but as such can mean added threats. The Cloud Security Alliance has come up with a list of issues that pose a serious threat to cloud computing. Let’s have a look at each of them.
Quick adoption of the latest advancements in technology is a surefire way to increase productivity and profit. One domain of technology that is gaining momentum in our current corporate world is cloud computing. One advantage that cloud storage brings for businesses is that they don’t have to purchase infrastructure, for which costs can be staggering. Cloud storage allows businesses to be more flexible with information and data, which can be collaborated on and accessed from anywhere in the world and from any device.
Have you decided to shift your organization’s operations to the cloud? No transition could ever hope to be successful without careful consideration of all relevant factors. Are you aware of the concerns you should be taking into account for this change? Here is a definitive list of factors that you must consider when moving to the cloud.

In order to comprehend how the whole paradigm works, we need to first understand the different models to see whether the cloud was outsourced, made internally, or was a combination of both.
In past decades, the information technology sector has indeed grown by leaps and bounds to become a force to be taken seriously. No longer can businesses survive or hope to thrive without keeping themselves updated and in step with the latest developments in the IT sector.
It is one of the most dynamic sectors, as technology continues to evolve and new and promising solutions emerge to offer a hand to businesses and enterprises in their quest to achieve maximum efficiency.
If you want to be the best, then you need to update your business with the latest industry technologies. If you hesitate to do so, then you are running a major risk of becoming obsolete, and eventually having nothing of value to offer to your customers, which could even drive you out of business.
Many hospitals and healthcare facilities resort to using outdated computers and software for locating your medical history even today, which firstly, makes it hard to locate and time-consuming, and secondly, the information may not be up to date! While these systems may be one notch up from the almost obsolete paper file systems, they are yet short of the level of efficiency these systems demand.
The solution? The conversion of healthcare facilities to using electronic health records. It was estimated that 2015 was to be the year in which most providers will be using cloud services, but even now the healthcare industry lags behind and has a long way to go.
