For those who approach new technology with some skepticism or reservation, this can appear as another overly-hyped marketing gimmick - especially for those that have recently made an investment in their premise-based infrastructure. However, for others it’s a powerful technology, enabling businesses to do more with less and access technology previously out of reach or reserved for very large enterprises.
