Over the years the term ‘cloud computing’ has been used to describe a number of different IT solutions – from accessing your software over the internet, to moving your servers to a data centre, and services only available on the web. But exactly which one is it, and how does it benefit your business?
Cloud computing is no one service in particular - instead it’s a way of providing your business with business applications or an IT infrastructure via the internet.
You still get all the benefits of the latest technologies, only without any of the associated headaches of traditional IT ownership like upgrades, maintaining hardware, backing up data and staying compliant with regulations. In the cloud, that’s all taken care of by dedicated IT professionals.
If you're looking to move into the cloud how will you know just what type of cloud services are most suited to your business
That's where our Cloud Advisory Service comes in. We draw on over 15 years in the cloud to advise you on the right mix of cloud services to underpin your business processes and support future growth.
In a nutshell, cloud computing allows you to outsource some or all of your IT concerns, leaving you free to focus on what you do best - running your business.

“It’s all very pain free and seamless, and it gives us peace of mind. We can go home on a Friday evening and know that on Monday morning everything will be up and running. Because we use a private cloud, all our data remains local but we also gain the benefit of having someone on hand 24/7 to answer questions and address issues should they arise.”

Compared to other cloud services, Desktop Anywhere offered Niche a high degree of customisation in its applications. OBT assumed responsibility for keeping Niche’s systems up and running, and allowed Niche staff to concentrate on their particular areas of expertise and productive client work.
