• Cloud computing: The cloud is something that many people now use both for personal use and for business use. The information is stored on the cloud and this means that it can be accessed from anywhere and from any internet enabled device. So, you don’t have to be tied to your desk or be using a particular device in order to access the service or information that you are looking for.
