Ash Cloud? Computer Cloud? Why working 'in the Cloud' make sense

So the volcano Eyjaf-whats-it-thingame-jig-kull is still spewing ash all over Europe and heading towards Canada as I type. All planes are still grounded and untold business men and woman are either stuck in a hotel twidderling their collective thumbs or sitting at their desk worrying about the fact they where meant to be working with a new client that they where flying out to last week.




It's been said before and I need to say it again - stop working locally and get in the cloud. I don't mean renting a helicopter and paying the ash cloud a visit - I mean start moving your working life online into the 'computer cloud'. For many people this has become the norm and there are some clear advantages:

  • No matter where you are physically, so long as you have an internet connection you can access your files, work, collaborate, communicate and be productive.

Get on to the cloud and get on with your business life.
