Whenever a product or service offers an alternative to the “old way of doing things” there is always going to be resistance. Cloud computing is no stranger to resistance and despite that, it has continued with nonstop momentum. Some of the naysayers to cloud computing are surprised when told that; online banking, accessing Google and Yahoo mail or even sending files to icloud and Dropbox are essentially cloud computing.

An article written by Graham Winfrey complete with infograpics for Inc.com titled “The Future of Cloud Computing–and Why Your Resistance Is Futile” states in part; “By 2017, two-thirds of all business workloads will be processed in cloud data centers, according to data cited by the New Jersey Institute of Technology. The percentage of organizations using the cloud for some form of database-as-a-service (DBaaS) is also expected to double by 2017, from 23 percent to 44 percent.”

The cloud is quickly transforming the way today’s businesses operate, allowing access to real-time data and increased communications across all the different departments and locations. There is no doubt that the cloud is the platform of the future. And, as businesses grapple with the new economy, the need for a solution that will help reduce costs, improve productivity and provide a healthy return on investment-becomes even more important.

We recognize not all businesses are keen on adopting a cloud solution, in part because for fear of the unknown and/or because some businesses have the personnel and hardware infrastructure to host a database in-house. Whatever the business rationale, next time you are evaluating time and attendance applications, consider the cloud as an alternative to the old-style client-server technology.
