The trends for the use of technology in business indicate a massive shift toward cloud technology. Cisco’s Global Cloud Index white paper shows global cloud IP traffic will almost quadruple over the next five years. This means that if you are late to incorporate this, you might miss out on many good opportunities for growth.
Here are a few cloud skills that you could incorporate into your day-to-day business processes to save time, money, and of course, keep up with the pace at which technology is taking over every aspect of our lives:
Storing and Maintaining Records
Maintaining records of all activities and transactions can be a big hassle, but not with cloud computing software. You can make these files private so that no outsider can access it. In case you wish to share certain documents with a stakeholder or member of your team, you can make it semi-public and share the link so that only a few people can access it. Another advantage is that if you change office headquarters or if an employee is moved to another branch across town or to another city, you do not need to physically transport documents since everything can be accessed by one email address and password.
The cloud comes with many opportunities, but also with it a good deal of threats. Cybersecurity is an extremely essential aspect to pursue. You need to be able to protect your files and data from hackers and destructive malware. Understanding the kind of threats and measures to combat becomes key because threats to cloud software are not even remotely similar to the threats you would face on the web.
Programming languages like Python, Perl, and Ruby have now become increasingly popular among cloud software and app developers. Thanks to the cloud, you can develop, enhance, and launch your apps and software more easily than before.
These are, in our opinion, the most important cloud skills that can really help you take proper advantage of the resources, opportunities, and prospects that the cloud software comes with.
