The IT industry as a whole has been gearing up for the spread of the cloud in the workplace, but in order to survive this rapid increase of cloud-based services, businesses and IT shops may need to redefine operations.

According to ReadWriteWeb, the changes that the cloud is bringing to business, specifically in such areas as computing power, infrastructure and Software/Desktops-as-a-Service (SaaS/DaaS)will be pivotal in the way companies are run in the near future. With cloud spending anticipated to increase at a compound annual growth rate of 26 percent over the next four years, according to IDC, businesses will want to prepare now for the road ahead.

Disruption in the software market as SaaS grows is one of the top changes that businesses will need to anticipate, the news source reports. This includes traditional business software used for everyday tasks. Many businesses are shifting away from the traditional data center model and are instead turning to cloud-based software and services for the delivery and management of applications and desktops over the internet.

Whether a business chooses to host company data and applications on a private or public cloud, providing users with secure RDP-based remote access to business-critical Windows resources, from anywhere and any device, without affecting performance and speed is crucial.

This ensures a business can tap into the cloud’s potential without putting operations at risk. A solution like Ericom’s AccessNow offers the necessary RDP-based tools to accomplish these tasks while minimizing risk and maximizing performance.
