Many managers today want to understand how the cloud will fit into their existing business structure in the same way that turn-of-the-century farmers wanted to understand how horses would fit into the automobile. While there are ways in which current processes of doing business are analogous to the way that they will be done after the full cloud revolution takes place, they will not in any way be the same. There is too much that is different about the cloud to meaningfully import many old ways of doing things. But why would anyone choose to manually shift files around their old computer systems with the potential to lose valuable information when they could store information on a cloud server that would automatically send it wherever it needed to be?

What might the cloud kill?
One element on at the top of the cloud's hit list may be Microsoft, or at least Windows. The adoption of the organization's new slogan of "cloud-first, mobile-first" means that even this venerable player of the OS wars may now recognize that the new dominant platform doesn't require an operating system to run. Instead, people are beginning to use cloud based services in record numbers, ranging from those who are using them purely for personal use, to those that are running their entire businesses off of them. Windows 10 has a chance of being Microsoft's last big OS project, according to Techzone360, which would fundamentally change the way that users and companies react to changing hardware and software developments. The future of personal and business computing may now squarely be within the cloud What may happen is an increase in the embrace of the cloud platform even for very large companies. Microsoft understand s that in order to thrive, they must do business the way their customers would like. This means moving to the cloud, not staying wedded to physical hardware.

How can businesses profit?
The good news is that it is fairly easy to thrive in the cloud. Although many are fearful of the way that their companies will change from the cloud, there are plenty of elements of business that continue on as usual. it is the allocation and transferal of data that will fundamentally shift, not the way that people make decisions. in fact, those who are able to utilize the cloud fully will find that their decision making capabilities have been augmented by the preponderance of available information out there. Understanding how to make use of various cloud elements and cloud based services in the context of a larger organization will be what separates successful from unsuccessful companies, and there is no reason why an organization that is prepared should be afraid.

Working with premium label cloud providers with strong service oriented architecture undergirding their cloud deployments, according to ZDNet, will be key for those who want their businesses to survive in the upcoming age of cloud-run business. Organizations that are aware of the power of the cloud will be able to use it in order to supercharge their decision making processes, and will use that in order to gain an increased market share. At this point, it is definitely better to be an adopter rather than one of the companies that is currently struggling to get on the trend. The fast pace of cloud based services now will continue to grow, and those that aren't able to keep up with the flow of information may have a difficult time catching up.
