IT Support London Company, Ziptech Services Managing Director, Jim Simpson believes that for some of his customer base Cloud Computing will allow them to run applications in the cloud in many cases without the need for internal IT resource.

Ziptech prides itself on being at the forefront of providing SMBs with the types of IT services that they need to run their businesses efficiently. They were one of the first IT Support companies to offer packaged Cloud Computing appraisals, helping clients assess their needs and advising on how Cloud Computing could work to improve their current business set up.
