If someone asks me what cloud computing is, I try not to get bogged down with definitions. I tell them that, simply put, cloud computing is a better way to run your business.”
With the rise of mobile devices and other devices that rely on remote storage (such as Chromebooks), there’s no compelling case to require local storage. In fact, synchronizing profiles (including bookmarks, contacts, and files) across multiple devices is rapidly becoming the default. With cheap, available cloud storage available to host preferences and documents, why lock yourself into having data available only on one device?
Every leader needs to understand the cloud and how it operates, as well as the potential cloud computing hazards and pitfalls. Knowledgeable supervision and servicing can be the difference between the application of the system being effective and failing.
On successful completion of this course participants will be able to:
Discriminate between the operating principles of cloud computing and other information management technologies, to assess their application as business solutions. Analyse the role of cloud computing infrastructure as a service platform in modern organisational configurations. Determine legal and commercial implications of adopting cloud computing for certain business processes.. Develop a reflective approach to analyse and evaluate organisational change with situations related to the adoption of cloud computing technology.
