He made Motorola DynaTAC brick phones the greatest thing since dual-tone multi-frequency signaling.

Experts predict that by 2019, more than 86% of workloads will be processed by cloud data centres. So obviously, the Zack Morris of today would definitely be utilizing the cloud because he was an innovator.

There are tons of reasons for businesses of every size to make the switch to the cloud. So flip your chair around, sit on it backwards, and read about all of the ways that cloud computing is totally where it’s at:

1. Reduce up-front costs:

There is no longer a need for expensive hardware that depreciates in value and requires replacement. That extra money means more burgers at The Max!

2. Stay current (like Lisa Turtle’s wardrobe)

With Software as a Service (SaaS), updates are available as soon as they’re released. This real-time updating helps boost productivity since updates often work on bug fixes and efficiency without downtime.

3. Disaster Recovery

Backups are kept in secure, geographically diverse locations. This can be a cost-effective option for small and medium businesses alike that require 100% reliability and uptime.

4. Collaboration

It offers the ability to share your work in real-time applications (like Google Docs or Microsoft 365) with employees and clients located across the globe, eliminating the back-and-forth process of waiting for emails. 

5. Competitive Advantage

Just like the rivalry between Bayside and Valley Highdifferentiate your business from competitors with the capacity to expand your reach, offer more products and services, and utilize enterprise-level service at small business affordability.
