Merry Christmas with Cloud Computing
Cloud computing helps us spend time with our family even if our work schedule does not allow it
According to Expedia Vacation Deprivation Report 2017 ‘India is the 5th most vacation deprived country globally’.The survey further revealed that 55 percent Indians take fewer days of the vacation days they get and 28 percent don’t take leaves as work schedule does not allow for vacation or there are not enough staff to cover.
As we enter the festive season of Christmas and New Year it is an opportunity for us to spend time with our family. While it is important to maintain a work-life balance one cannot deny the fact that businesses never stop and work needs to be done. In this era of tech disruption we are fortunate to have technologies like cloud computing that can help us spend time with our family even if our work schedule does not allow us a vacation.
With cloud computing an employee can easily login into his/her account and access the files the/she needs to work on.The data saved on the cloud can be accessed from any internet enabled device like a tablet, mobile phone or laptop and is not restricted to a specific location. Thus, allowing an employee have access to multiple information at one single place. Depending on the department, business unit and level this access can be controlled for employees.
Additionally, cloud computing is useful for online collaboration. Employees working on the the same project can see updates from their team members in real-time. Thus, avoiding documents with multiple versions. Basecamp and Asana are best examples of these applications. File sharing, discussions, task assignment and deadline calendars along with reminders are provided by these solutions. This allows employees to collaborate across departments even when using totally different devices and working from home over the holidays. Many of these cloud based systems can be seamlessly integrated into the existing environment.
“Our mobile-apps help salespeople generate real-time quotations, accounts team generate instant invoices and CEOs review real-time balance sheets and P&L statements on the go” said Hemanth Dattatreya, Global Head, Channels and Alliances, Deskera. The company is an emerging leader of cloud-based business software solutions. Its products range from ERP, MRP, CRM to HRMS and PM. “This seamless virtual office on the cloud can be accessed from any internet-enabled device. An employee can avail this work flexibility over the busy Christmas period, thus spending more time at home and less time in the office ,” he further added.
Since cloud computing gives online access to your work anytime, you can complete your task as per your flexibility. Complete your task post a family dinner or after shopping gifts for your family. With real-time synchronisation, you can also avoid miscommunication and long chain of emails. So this Christmas make the most of cloud technology to make you family as well as your customers happy.
Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
