Improving Business With Cloud Computing

by Chris S
This article focused on several benefits cloud computing can have on a business. A small list that was mentioned include data duplication, outsourcing, technical capability increase, and data handling. Some of the bigger ideas behind cloud computing improving a business are reducing their costs, security, and convenience. All these reasons tied together would create more efficiency for any business. By using cloud computing technology, businesses will be able to enhance and perform all their operations with ease.

I believe this relates to the idea of cloud computing with databases in a number of ways. The possible benefits with this scenario can be very efficient for any database management system and it’s users. A few things I can think of would the reduced technology costs, remote access and scalability. These are just to name a few but I am sure there are many more possible benefits to having cloud computing working with databases.

The other things I was thinking about were the potential problems with having a database in cloud computing. Securities and data integrity are my top concerns for it. For example, if by chance someone was able to get into a database, they may be able to modify sensitive information. I haven’t used cloud technology yet, but after reading up on it I will be attempting to make use of it very soon.

  1. It would seem that cloud computing have a lot of benefits that can help any company lower it overall cost in the IT department. However I feel that what you said is right in the terms that securities and data integrity is something that is a potential problems from larger firms using the cloud. Maybe cloud computing is only beneficial to smaller companies that doesn’t require so much security around their data and information. While what the you said is true in terms of all of the benefit cloud computing have there are also problems too.

  2. I’m sure you have used cloud computing in one way or another. Email can be considered cloud computing and I am sure you have used that. You pointed out the many concerns people have with cloud computing and we should all be wary of this. We open ourselves to being taken advantage of when we trust others with our personal information but this is the risk we take in an information sharing society. These crimes are rampant now but surely cloud computing will make this easier. This is why I believe that we, as future computer experts, will be needed even more to make sure that databases are secure. Our future is bright and knowing the ins and outs of cloud computing will benefit us.
