In order to prove that a small business could be run almost completely by cloud services, the staff at Small Business Computing recently created a theoretical company using only cloud services and non-PC devices. What they found was that, in fact, with the help of a tablet and access to cloud solutions, most of a businesses processes could be taken care of.
Gone are the days when starting a company required a huge investment in PCs, servers, network equipment and other hardware, as well as the purchasing of software. Gone are the days when you need to update those items on a periodic basis in order to keep up with changing technology. Now PCs can be replaced by more affordable tablets, with an add-on keyboard if needed. Application servers can be replaced with Infrastructure as a Service and Platform as a Service.
A file server and the old school way of sharing files via email can be replaced by online storage and collaboration services. Desktop productivity suites are going by the wayside in favor of online office suites. Even desktop software such as contact management, accounting packages, payroll services, and spam blasts are becoming outdated with the arrival of online CRM, cloud accounting and payroll, and online marketing services.
