The cloud has become advantageous for many businesses. Because of the massive amounts of information that can be stored in the cloud and the prevalence of tablets in our lives, creative businesses have greatly benefitted. The cloud gives people in creative industries an edge they didn’t previously have. It may not be obvious how creative businesses have improved due to the cloud, so here are just a few ways they’ve changed.
The size of someone’s portfolio was once limited to the things they could physically carry. Due to this size limitation, there were limitations to the content as well. Now, thanks to the cloud, they can create separate files tailored to each client’s needs, which they can quickly access from a tablet. This mobility can lead to more business more quickly.
In the past, collaborating with individuals in different time zones was very difficult. It required sending huge files through email, working on them independently then sending them back. This created multiple versions and duplicate copies, which was confusing. The cloud allows people to work on the same file simultaneously. This speeds up the collaborative process and keep everyone on the same page, so to speak.
Similarly, the cloud has improved the way groups brainstorm together. By creating mind maps in the cloud, anyone can work on an idea together. By accessing the mind map on a tablet or other handheld device, you can get opinions from colleagues and update the shared file with ease. Breaking down the distance barrier allows skilled individuals who previously could not contribute to do so.
When the mobile capabilities of tablets are paired with the cloud, creativity can happen anywhere at anytime and with anybody.
