About this resource

Cloud computing means that you are not accessing files and data from your local or personal computer, but that you are accessing them online from any internet enabled device. Information that is stored in the cloud is available anywhere you go and anytime you need it, giving entrepreneurs access to data wherever they have an internet connection.

It is important that in today’s fast-moving business climate, small business owners get what they need right when they need it, whether they’re on their computers, tablets or mobile phones – or in the office, out in the field or on the road.

This is exactly the convenience that cloud computing provides entrepreneurs. You don’t have to be at your desk to access your work.

Cloud computing is an evolving concept which continues to optimise IT performance of small and medium enterprises because of the low cost on infrastructure. It is an on-demand computing service which provides pay per use opportunities to small and medium enterprises.
