The cloud technology has been around for some time and it continues to gain popularity. The technology has impacted different parts of our lives such as:
Education institutions have realized the potential that the technology has and they have gone ahead and taken advantage of it. Due to the technology, students are able to get their lectures online. They are also able to do and submit their assignments and exams online without any problems. In short, as a student you are now able to study and complete your course from home and only visit your University or college to graduate.
Social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube have become very powerful tools to not only interact with friends and family, but to also pass important information. For example, you no longer have to wait for the prime-time news to know of the new occurrences-you only need to log into your favorite social media site and you will get all the information that you need. You can also read about new occurrences on blogs.
Public figures and politicians have realized the power of social media and use it interact with their fans and the people they lead.
Businesses are very important in a country and cloud technology has brought about great impact to them. For example, using Google docs and other applications employees are now able to work seamlessly on the same project at the same time.
This ensures that important projects get completed within a very short time. These applications also make it possible for employees to work from home thus saving office space while maintaining the same quality of work.
Medical centers have been able to store large amounts of data for very small amounts of money. Medical professionals on the other hand are able to easily share patient data. If you are a patient, you are able to access your data from the cloud at the comfort of your home. The cool thing is that the data is usually stored in a highly secure environment where it can’t be manipulated.
These are some of the impacts that cloud technology has had on our lives. The technology has been adopted by many organizations and companies. For example, large companies such as Yelp, eBay, Flickr, YouTube and Facebook are using it. The wide adoption is a clear indicator that cloud technology is not going away anytime soon.
