In today’s business environment, small businesses use cloud computing to access information anywhere using any compatible device. Unlike storing information on your computer or a server in your office, cloud computing stores data on the Internet. It works by making information available from a central Web-based hub that gives anyone with proper credentials access from any location with an Internet connection. Cloud computing also syncs data for all devices connected to the cloud, keeping them updated with real-time information.
Cloud systems are used by organizations of all shapes and sizes, from small businesses to multinational corporations.

Innovative cloud solutions are revolutionizing the business world, but they can also create new IT challenges. Even small cloud implementations need to be monitored and managed to maintain their health and security.

In the cloud environment, users can access all types of files, use applications as though they were in the office, and even collaborate remotely while working on the same project or presentation on their device as someone on the other side of the globe. Even if you’re away from work or your office server is inaccessible, data in the cloud is always up-to-date and always available wherever, whenever.
Cloud-computing services can range from data storage to functional programs, including accounting, customer-service tools and remote desktop hosting.
One of the most obvious benefits of moving everyday business to the cloud is that it can provide your business with significant savings. As a result, our customers will see a decrease in rack space, power usage, IT requirements, and cooling needs. That means lower installation, maintenance, hardware, upgrade and support costs. IT4LA can help you take advantage of all these savings
Collaboration is made easy in the cloud. The ability to save and access various files through the cloud enables employees to easily work from the same master document. Cloud collaboration tools, such as Google Drive, SKYDrive, allow users to upload, edit and comment on documents, which makes for better workplace collaboration. Additionally, employers can opt to limit what employees can access and be able to efficiently secure their company data
Not to mention, being able to access files through the cloud makes it easy for small-business owners to track and manage individual progress on assignments. How’s that for efficiency? Security? And 24×7 Availability?
IT4LA can help you take advantage of one of the most alluring benefits of cloud computing, which is being able to access work-related files and information from any device in any place at any time. We live in a mobile world. Long gone are the days where files are stuck on a single server on a single computer.
As the workplace begins to cater to more remote workers and flexible working arrangements, being able to access work materials, when not at work, is essential for employees. Not only does cloud computing make it easier for employees to work outside of the office, it makes it easier for small-business owners to manage their business at any time of day, from anywhere.
What’s more, increased mobility and flexibility in the cloud can lead to additional cost savings. For instance, small-business owners can opt to implement BYOD (bring your own device). Employees can work on devices they already own and are comfortable with, such as tablets and laptops — even their smartphones (to each their own, right?).
Adopting a cloud-based business solution creates multiple opportunities for integration — and simplified integration, at that. Cloud-adapted small businesses have the option of integrating with various cloud-based providers such as CRM companies, Quickbooks Online, Payroll services and secure file exchange services.
Small businesses can take advantage of specialized services that integrate with back-office operations, from human resources to marketing to accounting. These opportunities for integration give small-business owners more time to focus on the more critical areas of business.
