Is cloud computing right for your dealership?
Abstract: Since the advent of large mainframe computers, business computing has been associated with physical machines on the business’s premises. But that’s beginning to change with the rising popularity of “cloud computing,” which refers to the use of on-demand computing and data storage resources located on remote servers via the Internet. It can include hardware (such as servers), software, data center storage space, applications and networking components. This article discusses the benefits of cloud computing and how a business can engage it successfully. A sidebar describes three main cloud computing models to choose from.
