We talk about cloud solutions quite a bit - often enough, in fact, that we feel we may be making the impression that a cloud solution is a cloud solution, that one size will fit all interchangeably. This simply isn’t the case. In reality, the term ‘cloud’ doesn’t always necessarily mean one thing, which is what we wanted to discuss.
The cloud has long been proven to be an excellent tool for businesses to leverage, able to fulfill a wide variety of operational needs.
