Earlier this year IBM published a study that discussed the current trend of medium sized companies looking for cloud based solutions. Several benefits were mentioned but the dominant tone of the analysis was the overwhelming reduction in cost companies enjoyed by shifting to the cloud. Just how exactly does cloud computing decrease cost for companies?

Software is always evolving. New features are rolled out constantly and the lifetime of your software being the newest and latest innovation is very limited at best. To utilize new features you might get the opportunity to download them but that isn’t always an option. It is quite common for companies to only be able to upgrade by purchasing the newest software. With cloud based software like Scout Incorporated’s topShelf warehouse management system updates are rolled out instantly. Last quarter Scout released its Bark instant messaging feature at no additional cost or download time. With cloud based software server maintenance is a non-existent expense as well.
Cloud computing has certainly become a popular buzz phrase. Salesforce, a leader in cloud computing, had a Super Bowl commercial in January and is currently hosting its own cloud computing event called Dreamforce. According to this article in the New York Times the Census Bureau even used Salesforce in preparation for the 2010 census.
Scout’s topShelf inventory software fully integrates with Salesforce and many other back office applications. Don’t have a back office application?
