How Cloud Computing Can Help Your Business
Posted on 10/8/2018 by Chris Claudio

"The Cloud" has become part of our vocabulary and daily life. Almost everybody uses it, but many businesses really don't understand how to best harness it as a business strategy.

Let's take a step back and start from the beginning. The "cloud" is a buzzword that promises the convenience of being able to access files from anywhere.

Why Outsource Your IT
Posted on 10/8/2018 by Chris Claudio

What's the first thing that comes to mind when you think of outsourcing?

Let's face it, outsourcing has kind of been a dirty word for a long time. It is often associated with the wave of activity that took place during the 90s and early 00s as organizations looked to cut costs by moving routine, process-oriented business activities like call centers and back office work to low-cost third party organizations which were generally located offshore.

In reality, the concept of outsourcing is much broader and is about way more than reducing costs. Engaging third parties for specialized business activities has been a routine business practice for decades.
