-- Weighing whether cloud computing is more beneficial to the company or not is a decision that cannot be brought upon overnight.
Let's check the pros and cons of cloud collaboration to better understand if you and your company will benefit from it.
- Work schedule flexibility – cloud collaboration allows a more diverse work schedule that is better than the traditional methods that we currently have. The nature of cloud which is 'always available' and 'readily accessible' promotes better options in terms of varieties of shifts and schedules.
- Reduction of downtime – since cloud collaboration is available anytime, anywhere, the waiting time for decisions and/or information is greatly reduced. This means that any employee who needs to contribute can do so whether they are on the road, at home, in the office, or even when on vacation.
- Scaling made easier – projects may expand anytime depending on success, and most of the times, the project expansion can be a pain if the product you're using cannot accommodate, hence the transition to another tool. With cloud collaboration, such changes are made so simple that wit doesn't matter whether you need to expand the numbers or not, it can accommodate no matter how big or small your project will be and would cost cheaper compared to other solutions.
- Work-life imbalance – achieving work-life balance is hard enough these days, and cloud collaboration makes it more challenging. In an ideal world, cloud collaboration can help us achieve work life balance since it is readily available, lessening wait time, travel time and such which means more time for yourself and your family. However, these solutions can somewhat backfire in the real world. Being readily accessible means you are available anytime, even on rest days or on vacation, which definitely destroys the balance we are trying to keep.
- Diffusion of focus – cloud collaboration allows ease of access, which means it is easier to involve people in the project for more ideas. However, more people means more ideas, which also means harder time to get into consensus. This slows down the whole process instead of helping it to achieve results. It is best to establish a structure to make sure the end decision can be done without so much delay.
These are just a few samples to think about before you jump into cloud collaboration. Remember that it is a great tool for project managing.
