Is your IT department too big? Featured

There's a lot of talk on the street and on the Web about cloud computing. But what does it really mean, and how will it help make your business more efficient?


Cloud computing isn’t necessarily new. Software companies have been offering Internet-based software that you can run virtually without installing on your computer directly for years. Sites like Flickr and YouTube have provided Internet-based storage of photos and video. And online blogs have provided space to host your thoughts, share news virtually and not take up hard drive space.


But today’s concepts of cloud computing have expanded, and businesses are beginning to see where they might find efficiencies that can help them better build their businesses.


At 11 a.m. EST on November 12, Smart Business will talk with Mark Swanson, CEO of Telovations, and Brad Feld, Managing Director, Foundry Group, in a one-hour Webinar, where we’ll discuss how using cloud services will help you scale your business. Among the topics we'll cover:


  • Scalability: Add or remove users as business needs change
  • Pay-as-you-go: Why you don't need to think of cloud computing as a large investment
  • Flexibility: What you need to know so that you can quickly and easily adapt to changing technology  

If you've been wondering about the benefits of cloud computing, we'll tackle the basics and explain why it makes good business sense to consider taking a step into the clouds. Click here to register.
