The advent of cloud computing essentially allows companies to move significant upfront infrastructure expenses to lower-cost recurring operational expenses. Cloud servicing offloads the responsibility of purchasing, maintaining and upgrading your technology. One caveat is that cloud computing requires that you put your business information in the hands of a third-party, so make sure that you trust your vendor. The company’s balance sheet is another great beneficiary of cloud computing services. Another advantage is that the (typically) monthly outlay for cloud services is predictable and you can easily project computing costs as your business grows.
Storage capacity works in much the same way, you only need to pay for what you use and as requirements grow, increasing storage capacity is as simple as upgrading a service plan with your cloud provider. Another advantage of cloud computing is the ability to run Big Data analytics on top of your existing data processes.
Companies for which Big Data is not a core competency can receive immense benefit from Big Data as a service.
Cloud services eliminate the need for large, specialized teams to manage computing infrastructure and processes.
Business that are in startup mode or are adding new features or technology offerings can see significant benefit from cloud services.
In addition, cloud deployments alleviate the need for upfront capital to invest in infrastructure, reducing the risk to launch startups or develop new technology offerings. The industry is seeing backlash from the glut of proprietary, or closed, platforms that proliferated as startups tried to ensure their footing within the market.
Many cloud providers are moving to open standards in order to offset the investment horizon within which companies are operating. Cloud computing also enables remote access, so IT personnel are spared the headache of configuring portal access for specific needs. The flexibility of cloud infrastructure also allows for easy layering of reporting capabilities on top of database processing. Surveys have shown that the majority of cloud customers remain dissatisfied with support services offered by cloud vendors.

If you have questions about what a cloud deployment would look like for your business, we would love to discuss the options with you.
Why are you asking me for personal information?We collect personal information including your contact and demographic information for the purposes of identification, account administration and display of personalised content and advertising. Dilbert, the well-known comic strip by cartoonist Scott Adams about the office everyman and his crew of incompetent colleagues, was the first syndicated comic that focused primarily on the workplace when it launched in 1989.
Five years later, it had become so successful that Adams quit his corporate career to work on it full-time. Ever since, the comic has explored topics like the inefficiency of meetings, the uselessness of management, and the absurdity of office politics.
Exclusively for Business Insider, Adams looked through the archives and shared his 10 favourite Dilbert comics. Below, he explains why he chose each and counts them down to his absolute favourite of all-time.

Datacentrix' Compliance function ensures that the company complies with both the letter and the spirit of the laws and regulations governing its activities.

Compliance is driven from board level – the Compliance Committee reports into the Audit and Risk Committee and comprises key management members from a number of functions including finance, IT operations, legal, SHEQ (safety, health, environment and quality) and HR.
The Compliance function is managed within the bounds of the company's compliance policy and framework, which aims to reduce risk across its operations. Compliance has been classified into different categories: Regulatory and Governance, Financial, SHEQ, Legal, HR, Operational, and IT. Early versions of the comic were rejected by several publications, including The New Yorker and Playboy. Often those little nuggets of wisdom make no sense whatsoever, but we’ve heard them so often they feel as if they do.
But one company is taking it a step further by allowing small business owners to use a tablet as a POS device. Retailers don’t even have to invest in wireless networking, making it ideal for the small boutique and mom-and-pop diner alike. By visiting partner stores, customers can choose items, add them to a cart, and checkout with a credit card, circumventing long lines. Her first book, 30 Days of No Gossip, will be released by Simon and Schuster in spring 2014.
Although not a mandatory requirement, the company's dedicated Compliance function indicates the company's attitude and commitment to corporate governance. Compliance is monitored through regular risk assessments, ongoing monitoring and audits conducted by relevant parties (compliance function, certain staff members and internal auditors). If you have a job, you probably spend some part of each day trying to disguise your selfish motives as win-win scenarios. Security for the service is provided by Chase Paymentech, a PCI compliant payment security solution. The user can print a receipt to show at the location that will result in that order being filled. Granted, that rate is higher than competitors, but considering the start-up costs many competitors charge, this additional fee is negligible.
