Cloud based solutions are all around us.
Not only are we, on a personal level, moving our data from traditional storage on hard drives, limited to actual physical access, to easily accessible data on any computer or mobile device anywhere in the world, but also almost every industry is turning to cloud based solutions as a viable solution.

The company can then focus on the core function as a manufacturer.
