Cloud services facilitate collaboration and the easy exchange of information for today’s mobile workforce. Organizations spread across multiple geographic locations gain much greater flexibility and control. Cloud services allow IT admins and other staff to work remotely from wherever they need to be. As long as an Internet connection is present, physical location no longer makes a difference. In addition, the cloud provides organizations with a more scalable and flexible platform. New services and additional capacity are possible within minutes, so IT can dependably keep pace with business demands and enable the business to grow.

Cloud-based services have seeped into our everyday lives, both at home and in the office. Yet there are still some misconceptions that make business executives and IT managers nervous about implementing cloud-based services in their organizations.

There will always be doubters and those who prefer to be late adopters, but for those who are ready to take advantage of cloud-based services, capabilities that might otherwise be inaccessible are suddenly within reach.

In this slideshow, GFI Cloud shares thoughts on the top five misconceptions about cloud-based services – that they are unreliable, not secure, too expensive, offer less flexibility and control and require too many resources.
