It used to be that when someone said, “Get your head out of the clouds!” they were telling you to stop dreaming and be realistic. Today, forward thinking business owners are using the “cloud” to organize, share and generally manage links, files, folders, presentations, email alerts and any other data that was previously shared through an “in house” file transfer protocol. In an increasingly mobile business world with all sorts of competing technologies being used simultaneously, using a cloud based platform to exchange and manage information is not only sensible, it's the wave of things to come.
You may think, “This is fine for huge companies with employees scattered all over the map, but what does this mean for a small to medium sized business?” The truth is that every business reaches a point where larger storage devices must be purchased in order to store and keep track of information. More salespeople, more decision makers and more data means hiring more IT people just to keep the hardware working properly. The need for a system that allows an administered, secure, and versatile platform for information exchange within a company becomes obvious. Companies such as Box.com and Dropbox provide these cloud based services and more and more businesses are realizing the savings and accessibility advantage of online, cloud based information management.
