Cloud Computing, often referred to as simply “The Cloud”, is the delivery of on-demand computing resources – everything from applications to data – over the Internet on a pay-for-use basis.
Cloud computing consists of hardware and software resources made available on the Internet as managed third-party services. These services typically provide access to advanced software applications and high-end networks of server computers.
Xero, Vend & Receipt Bank are perfect examples of Cloud based systems – so is your internet banking. The information is kept with the program; you don’t need to locate your data file on your office server or desktop computer.
You can access these programs from any device that has an Internet connection at anytime that is convenient to you.
