Cloud is the future of business
Have you heard of Tesla’s autopilot feature in its new Model S vehicle? Well if you haven’t, here is what you need to know in a nutshell. In the innovative space of autonomous driving, Tesla has raised the bar by introducing an Autonomous cloud-linked software which can accelerate, brake and steer for the driver, provided you’ve got your hands on the wheel. Autopilot uses a great deal of sensors and cameras to guide the car in its autopilot mode.
The driver can take manual control of the car at any time and what’s particularly interesting is that details about what the driver does and where they did it are sent back to Tesla, where they’re sent out to the rest of the Autopilot equipped cars on the road. Essentially, it means Tesla’s cars shouldn’t make the same mistake twice. One Tesla car learns and teaches all other tesla vehicles on the road!!
This is the power of the cloud. And just to be clear, cloud computing is computing based on the internet.
Cloud computing is revolutionizing every single industry and is set to be at the center of the much talked about internet of things (IoT). If we are to have an internet of ‘things’ which communicate with one another to make our lives much faster, convenient and efficient, then it’s only logical that the cloud will be the heart of this communication system.
Top companies globally understand this truth, including we at Clinet Online, and have moved most of their business operations to the cloud. Gone are the days when you required an accounting software installation on your computer to create and store financial records for your business, or a photo manipulation software installation to create designs for your next presentation. The cloud over the internet has provided much better tools to assist your business perform all these functions collaboratively, safely and in real-time without all the traditional trouble of buying software, installing it and having to update it now and then to match the ever changing technological requirements.
We at Clinet Online have gone out of our way to introduce, teach and deploy cloud based solutions to many companies in Kenya while eliminating enterprise based software solutions which compounded rigidity, bureaucracy and inefficiency.
We want you to use an accounting, design, storage, scheduling, or even word editing software based on the cloud for your business. Our great believe and empirical evidence on the power of the cloud in increasing a company’s business has led us to work with leading global companies who tailor cloud solutions for all kinds of business from small to large corporations.

Just before we conclude, let’s just highlight the major benefits of adapting cloud computing for your business regardless of size;
- No Equipment or Capital expenditure
Do you have a huge hard disk or a gigantic computer at your business floor storing all your data since the beginning of time? With Cloud computing, this sounds so archaic. Cloud computing significantly cuts out the high cost of hardware such as massive hard disks and other storage devices. On the cloud you simply pay for what you want to enjoy in a subscription based model that’s super friendlier to your cash flow. Compare this to your scary, massive storage space needs for all your employees and the cloud looks much cheaper.
- Increased Collaboration within your team
When your team can access, edit and share documents anytime, from anywhere, they’re able to do more together, and do it better. Google apps has wonderful tools such as Google docs, sheets and forms which make collaboration easy and assist your team to maximize the little time available. No more sending documents as email attachments back and forth as you can work on them together, real-time.
- Work from anywhere, any time
As long as you have internet connection regardless of your location or device, you are always at work and can get work done. With cloud, all your data is always available and your colleagues can collaborate with you to get things moving.
Costlier than the cost of a lost laptop, phone or hard disk is the data inside the devices. Cloud computing gives you greater security when this happens. Because your data is stored in the cloud, you can access it no matter what happens to your machine. Google Apps even allows you to remotely wipe data from lost laptops so it doesn’t get into the wrong hands.
