Companies all around the world have their heads in the cloud, and it’s changing the way everyone does business, and for the good. Cloud-computing is the use of software services and platforms that exist on the internet as opposed to living on a computer. Instead of buying software for a number of users in your company and downloading it on their machine, you subscribe your users to cloud-based services and your employees can access them from anywhere in the world.
According to the IDC, cloud computing has grown from a $16.2 billion market in 2008 to $42.3 billion in 2012—a growth of 250% in just four years.
