"The Cloud" is not for everyone, here's why...

While operating in the cloud simplifies IT and allows greater flexibility and potentially lower costs, it is not suitable for all businesses. Before you can operate in the cloud, you need to be aware that your information is no longer under your roof. For cloud success you need to ensure that your cloud provider has a fool proof backup system, that your information is not accessible by unauthorised people and that it is hosted on a reliable internet connection.
