Could Cloud Technology Help Your Business? As the business world turns more and more to Cloud computing, we show Berkshire firms why running more of your business online makes perfect sense.


The cloud is more than just a buzzword used by network engineers and web developers. Today, the cloud is a part of our everyday lives. If you use Gmail or Hotmail, then your emails are stored in the cloud. When you watch Youtube or Netflix, you are streaming content from the cloud. When cloud technology is implemented properly, most people don't even notice it. Online services just work and the programming and server technology behind them doesn't matter to end users.

Cloud Technology for Small Businesses

If you're looking for web design quotes, you may have wondered exactly what goes on behind the scenes when it comes to running a small business website. The answer to that question is that it depends. A simple static website does not require an expensive server with a lot of processing power. However, if you want a dynamic website or an online store, you may find that cloud services could save you a lot of money and give your website more room to grow.

Cloud services store data online instead of on your local machine. This has many benefits, including allowing you to access your data from anywhere as long as you have an internet connection. Keeping your data on a secure remote server is far safer than storing it on the computer in your office because it frees you from having to worry about physical security breaches, data loss, back-ups and other technical problems.

As part of our service, we offer a suite of online tools called Siteglide. This combines content creation and management, analytics and collaboration into one easy-to-use tool. Whether you are running a simple blog or a fully featured community site which will have several contributors, Siteglide will work for you. We also offer CRM tools and bespoke database development for those who are looking for something more complex than the standard Siteglide offering. If you wish, you can move your whole business to the cloud.

When you're shopping for free web design quotes, think carefully about what the designers are offering. Make sure that the website you are buying is one that can grow with your business. Future-proofing is not just for hardware these days, as the web is growing and evolving rapidly and what is cutting edge today will be a staple of all websites in a year or two's time. It pays to invest in the latest technologies.

As one of Berkshire's leading web development companies, we recommend looking at cloud technology options (such as Siteglide) to see how the latest online features can benefit your business.

My career in SEO and web development began in the mid-1990s when the Internet was in its infancy and Google had not even been conceived. Nowadays my role is split between heading up the content marketing/ SEO department, which has grown considerably over recent years, and overseeing operations including PHP and MySql (Open Source) development for larger, more bespoke applications.
