What is the cloud? Ask a 10 year old.

Many small business owners shy away from moving their business processes to "the cloud" simply because they don't understand it. They think it is only for the "big guys" or it's too complicated. In reality they should be making it a high priority to understand cloud computing and how it can benefit their business. In doing so, they would discover the cloud is for businesses of any size and it simplifies rather than complicates their systems. There is another reason they need to understand the cloud - the next generation (if not the current generation) of customers, employees and competitors DO.

Accenture, a global management consulting, technology services and outsourcing company, has produced a short video in which some pretty sharp "10-somethings" explain the cloud in simple and quite interesting terms. Keep in mind these kids have no experience of life "pre-cloud". Check it out:

At Geeks On Call in Charleston SC we have witnessed a new willingness on the part of small business to move their business processes to the cloud. Our preferred platform for small business is Google Apps for Business because it is crazy affordable, robust and simple. For almost all small businesses it is practically a "no brainer". If you are a small business owner you need to Get Google Apps Now!
