Cloud services have shifted from intriguing to compelling. Organizations around the world are turning to cloud services as the preferred delivery model for computing, communications, collaboration, email, storage, payroll, HR, and CRM. Recent studies show that the migration is taking place quicker than generally predicted, and the conversation about cloud adoption has shifted from should to when across industries and around the globe. Current research confirms that communications applications are leading the migration toward the cloud.
The benefits derived from cloud-based communications and collaboration are strong while the risks are disappearing. Cloud collaboration increases an organization’s ability to be nimble, responsive, and productive. Cloud services also unite geographically distributed organizations with consistent services across locations – including mobile and home teleworkers. These are just some of the conclusions from multiple studies.
