Ongoing pressures and fiscal uncertainties continue to weigh on districts. The good news is that cloud computing has come of age, and is providing CFOs with access to computing resources and capabilities that were once out of reach. More districts are determining that cloud-based services can provide powerful and capable solutions while decreasing capital outlays and operational costs.
Cloud computing is the 21st century term for resource, data, and software sharing via the internet. A cloud computing provider, like Apple's iCloud, facilitates control and cloud data management of information by storing this information on physical servers. Utilizing cloud computing technology means you’re storing data somewhere else instead of a computer hard drive. Relying on cloud backups also means you can access information from anywhere and download it to a variety of devices, such as smartphones, laptops, and tablets.
