Falling From the Clouds

As I looked out the window earlier today, I couldn’t help but notice that the winter snow storms have finally made their way to the south. The snow was falling from the clouds at a pretty constant pace and oddly enough it was beginning to build up on the ground. I thought to myself that the forecasters were correct in timing the snow fall and since I live by the 6 P’s (proper prior planning prohibits poor performance), I did not have to run out to the store to buy the necessary bread and milk.

Instead of having to go out and brave the elements today, I was able to get all my work completed thanks to the use of technology. As I watched the news reports about how many of the schools, churches, and other facilities were closing early today in addition to the traffic build up around the city; I reveled at the fact that by using software as a service (SaaS)products and cloud computing my business was able to operate “business as usual”. This is just one of the many reasons a small business owner needs to investigate the use of technology resources in their firm. By using technology driven resources a small business owner can operate in the clouds instead of worrying about what’s falling from them.
