One of the most powerful features of Microsoft Dynamics is its reliance on cloud technology. The Microsoft Dynamics cloud is one of the most advanced and useful clouds on the market, and cloud computing has done more to change the business of technology than any advance since the widespread adoption of email and the web.

But many of our clients aren’t familiar with cloud technology. They’ve heard the phrase, of course, thrown around as a buzzword or feature, but don’t have a clear idea of what cloud computing is and why it can make their lives better.

With that in mind, we’ve set up this very simple guide to the world of cloud computing:

  • What is the Cloud?
    The concept behind the cloud is simple: Instead of data living on your hard drive, it lives on the cloud – a series of off-site, always-on and connected web servers. Instead of saving important documents to a folder on your computer, you’re saving those documents into a third-party location that can be accessed from anywhere in the world. The term “cloud” simply is meant to bring to mind images of data floating through the air.
  • How does it help?
    There are huge advantages to using the Microsoft Dynamics cloud. Most importantly, cloud computing gives you the ability to access information and data from anywhere. You can use your work computer, your phone, your tablet or a laptop at a friend’s house. With the Dynamics CRM cloud , you’re no longer tied specifically to your work computer for accomplishing work-related tasks. Cloud computing makes it easy to share information with other users and opens up the ways in which it can be accessed.
  • Who uses Cloud technology, and for what?
    Thousands of businesses are using cloud technology. Some use them to limit their on-site tech needs and storage requirements. Others prefer the safety of an off-site storage solution, and still others are linked into the cloud simply to make things more efficient for their employees. The best thing about cloud technology is that it is simple to use! it — it’s just like using a computer.
