As workforces moved home to slow down the spread of coronavirus, cloud computing helped companies continue with day-to-day operations. Cloud computing allows companies to expand and contract IT infrastructure in a cost-effective way, which was critical as needs evolved throughout the crisis and will continue to as we emerge into a new reality. Now that more companies experienced the flexibility of cloud computing, they can now be more strategic about how they will use it and also refine how they use it to develop best practices.
Cloud computing is technology four storing data and delivering computing services, including servers, databases, networking, software, analytics and more over the internet. When an individual or a business wants to use the cloud, they will pay a cloud provider based on usage with pay-as-you-go pricing.
Cloud computing makes 24/7 customer service from anywhere possible. In addition, cloud computing enhances the agility of financial institutions and makes scaling up services easier and quicker. Since they only pay four services they use, cloud computing can help financial institutions control costs. Cloud computing also enables secure online payments, digital wallets, and online transfers.
