What Are Must Have Cloud Services?
Managed Cloud Services For Businesses of All Sizes
The cloud has revolutionized the workplace today—making communication, collaboration, data storage, and security, faster, safer, and cheaper than ever before.
But what is the cloud and what are managed cloud services? In the sections below, we’ll discuss the three groupings of cloud services and what specifically a managed cloud service provider will do for you.
Productivity Suite – Office 365
There are a number of productivity suites on the market today, most notably Google Docs iWork, and Microsoft Office. Microsoft commands the vast majority of the market share today—and for good reason. Microsoft Office offers familiarity, ease of use, and compatibility with many of the most common business systems on the market today.
Office 365, unlike traditional iterations of the Microsoft Office platform, offers users a comprehensive and robust user experience—from anywhere. Office 365 is a cloud hosted suite of productivity applications with the same look and feel of the legacy Microsoft Office applications.

Teleconferencing – GoToMeeting or WebEx
Cloud hosted teleconference applications have revolutionized the way we do business. Meetings and conferences that once required physical travel can now often be just as effective remotely with cloud based teleconference software.
There are dozens of products on the market today offering these services, but the clear leaders are GoToMeeting and Cisco’s WebEx. Both GoToMeeting and WebEx offer intuitive interfaces with a number of collaboration and communication features.
If you’re not already using GoToMeeting, WebEx, or a similar application for your conferencing needs, it is time to start. The cost savings alone can pay for the cost of the application many times over, not to mention the convenience of reducing travel time and hassle.
Customer Relationship Management Systems – SalesForce, Oracle, Microsoft Dynamics, InfusionSoft
The most successful businesses are those that have a clearly defined sales process and a system in place for managing that process. Long gone should be the days of storing customer contacts in spreadsheets and relying on memory and trust for them to be followed up on.
CRM systems enable companies to correctly identify their target audience and helps focus marketing efforts reducing the cost of customer acquisition, forecast sales, analyze customer satisfaction, and so much more.
The major players in this market space are SalesForce, Oracle, Microsoft Dynamics, and InfusionSoft among others. Each have their own advantages, but their target markets vary. Ocale and Microsoft Dynamics are designed with enterprise level clients in mind while SalesForce and InfusionSoft are more favorable for small to medium sized businesses. To learn which is right for your business, consult with an IT professional.
