1.Ability To Work Remotely
Modern employees are flexible and mobile and due to ever increasing internet speeds and adoption of cloud computing allows team members to access files and work from anywhere and on any device. Many employees are moving away from the traditional 9 to 5 working hours, often opting to work remotely.
2.Collaboration Is Key
A common goal for businesses is to increase collaboration amongst employees. For SMBs, introducing cloud computing has made it possible to share information with colleagues with ease. Cloud computing also allows team members to work together on projects simultaneously.
For larger businesses tools such as Skype for Business and SharePoint can boost collaboration and allow teams to seamlessly work together on multiple projects. These collaboration tools enable teams to share documents, host conference calls and more, regardless of their location.
3.Be Prepared For Disasters

Losing critical data to a fire or another disaster at your business’ premises can cause considerable downtime to your business. Instead, minimise damage by backing up your data and having an adequate data recovery plan.
