You don’t need to be a technology wizard to see cloud computing has taken the world by storm. Many things consumers now take for granted are enabled by the cloud. If you’ve logged into Google, updated your profile on Facebook or bought clothes online, you’ve experienced the capabilities of cloud technology. 

Gamers now enjoy exhilarating gaming experiences anywhere because of the cloud’s power to provide higher speed without interruption. Due to the cloud, retail inventory records are becoming much more visible and reliable, enabling a more satisfying experience for consumers who shop for products on the Internet and then go to a store to purchase them.

The future is bright with possibilities as the cloud is poised to improve health-care standards, reduce carbon footprints and transform business practices. The workplace has evolved as the cloud allows for new, more efficient forms of collaboration.
