How to move to the cloud

Rather than installing software on your local computer or server, cloud computing uses remote servers to run the software which delivers services to you over the internet via a web browser. Web-based email (e.g. Hotmail or gMail), internet banking, file storage (e.g. Dropbox) or even social media sites like Facebook are examples of cloud computing. Moving to the cloud is often an option which cuts costs and increases security for many charities. However there are some important things to consider to ensure a smooth transition - this guide provides advice and key insights.
