The Impact of Cloud Technology on Our Lives

PostedOn: 2017-12-06 11:16:12

Long gone are the days when you could walk down the street without seeing technology everywhere. All ages, from children to seniors are spending more hours than any other time period before on computers and smart phones. The digital age of the internet has ushered in a technologically connected world. The cloud, or the mass network of servers that allow access to data from anywhere where one is connected to the internet, is a huge part of that. With the cloud, more speed, storage, and agility is enabled. This revolutionary technology will continue to have an immeasurable impact on our lives:

Integration and Hybrids

The hybridization of the cloud is real. And it's here. With so much integration happening, it's only a matter of time before our devices will be able to load everything and download everything in the cloud. Imagine your kitchen appliances being able to have just as much intelligence as your Smartphone and share the data for smart purchases. This reality is not far off.

Selling

Business dealings and sales are also going to the cloud. This might seem like a strange statement, but when you think about it, it is easy to see that this is where the future is headed. Sales is all about communication. When one person is able to convey the benefit of their product to someone else, a sale is made. 

With the cloud, two people can converse faster than ever before. You can share data and videos at lightning fast speeds. This is changing from a text-based selling environment online to video and audio because it better represents real life.

Education

Education is being revolutionized. You might be old enough to remember when the teacher of a classroom would wheel a giant tv into the room to show a video or two. Now, with the cloud, students are able to learn faster in different modalities. 

With tablets and phones, young kids are becoming literate in technology at earlier and earlier ages. This means that cloud will continue to grow. After all, education is the core backbone at the center of our economy and it is necessary to have smart people going forward if we're going to overcome mainstream societal issues.

Security

Cybersecurity is more important than ever. Attacks are happening on all fronts. Even major governments aren't immune to having their systems attacked. With a penetration tool, a hacker can get into your network and get your information. This will create additional security measures that may mean you have to take extra steps to protect your data. 

This is especially true if you have to run a business. If competitors hire a hacker to steal customer information, you could be in the dark. So don't take the risk, invest in cloud security to avoid missing opportunities.

Agility

Agility and scale are becoming more and more possible. Businesses don't need to hire scores of people to have customers pleased anymore. Fulfilling an order can happen in a fraction of the time with the right technology. Cloud tech lets you automate tasks that used to be outsourced.

Surveillance

With indoor and outdoor cameras everywhere, there needs to be somewhere to store the video they record. It used to be that you had to have a disc or VHS. Now, you don't even need a whole room or even a whole hard drive. With cloud storage, anything can be synced up to servers elsewhere. Companies are taking advantage of this.

Pace

The speed of which the daily life of users of technology is increasing. It used to be that you could relax and not worry about email in the middle of the day. With instant communications powered by cloud storage and messages online, you are online for much more during the day. Be sure to unplug occasionally to relax. 

When it comes to cloud technology, it has a lot of effect on our lives. Everyday tasks are going to change at a rapid pace. If you want to adapt and keep up with the changes, you need to know the results of cloud that's being adopted in every facet of technology. Otherwise, you could miss out on the coming opportunities.
