Organica has always been among the more innovative companies with its unique solutions and outstanding services. In today’s company cultures digital communication systems along with IT services compose the backbone of engineering work, sales as well as marketing. As with most things, Organica keeps ahead of the curve with these systems and creates a strong structure to support its innovation. Enter cloud computing!

 

With cloud computing a company can create a flexible, easy to live with system that can adapt to any situations. But what is a cloud system?

Simply put, cloud computing is computing based on the internet. Where in the past, people would run applications or programs from software downloaded on a physical computer or server in their building, cloud computing allows people access to the same kinds of applications through the internet. Whenever you check your bank account, you are using cloud computing. Creating a Facebook post? Cloud computing. Or in our case, design a wastewater treatment plant from scratch? You guessed it, cloud computing.
But it is so much more than the things listed above. You can have Microsoft Office applications run in a cloud, a full scale file sharing and hosting service, such as SharePoint, be used to grant access to all your employees no matter where they are in the world. You can store a vast amount of data on projects, partners, companies in a cloud based CRM system, giving the same flexibility to your employees.

So after this introduction, let’s take a look at some of the most beneficial aspects of cloud based computing.

  • It’s flexible! Would you like to work from home? Go ahead, access all your emails on any computer, at any place. Also, if your company needs to increase its capacities, you do not have to buy additional servers, you can just switch to a higher capacity subscription.
  • Businesses of all sizes should be investing in robust disaster recovery, but for smaller businesses that lack the required cash and expertise, this is often more an ideal than the reality. Cloud is now helping more organisations buck that trend. Cloud based backup and recovery solutions save time, avoid large up-front investment and roll up third-party expertise as part of the deal.
  • When your teams can access, edit and share documents anytime, from anywhere, they’re able to do more together, and do it better. Cloud-based workflow and file sharing apps help them make updates in real time and gives them full visibility of their collaborations.
  • …and related to the previous point, cloud-based services make document control a much easier process making
    version tracking an integrated solution that every uploaded file possesses. Before the cloud, workers had to send files back and forth as email attachments to be worked on by one user at a time. Sooner or later – usually sooner – you end up with a mess of conflicting file content, formats and titles.

With these huge improvements and possibilities, however, one must ask the question, what are the drawbacks? Can such a system be susceptible to hacking or should we be worried about our confidential files being stolen? Well, there is always a chance but with huge and reliable providers, such as Amazon, Google, Lenovo Cloud, Microsoft and so many more, these possibilities converge to 0. As a final sentence, with practically zero risks, money savings and enormous flexibility, why not lead the charge?
