7 Reasons Small Businesses Switch to Cloud Based Software
used with permission from the Microsoft Small Business Center
Small business owners often have big dreams. Whether that dream is to keep your business small or to grow it into a big business, you want your business to run as smoothly as possible – every step of the way. You might start your business as a sole proprietor with just a laptop and a few software programs. As your business grows and adds employees, you have to start thinking about security, backup, remote access, and coordination of effort. One of the reasons small businesses switch to cloud-based software is to reap the benefits of big business infrastructure, without having to implement and manage it directly. Until recently, your software and servers almost always resided in your office, where they would be administered by your IT staff. This type of deployment is referred to as “on premise.” In the last several years, “cloud based” software has become more popular. Cloud based software (also called cloud computing) enables companies to access software and servers located in a secure data center, maintained by the software provider. These free or subscriber-based services are delivered in real time over the Internet. Your Microsoft Hotmail or Live account is an example of cloud-based email. Small businesses are finding the many attributes of cloud computing very attractive. Here are seven reasons why.

5 Career Survival Tips for the “Wherever” Worker
used with permission from the Microsoft Business SiteToday’s office worker isn’t always found in the office. Even if you’re not in sales, you may do a significant amount of work at a customer site, from conference hotels, or at home. Studies have shown that this kind of work flexibility leads to a more satisfying work life, a more fulfilling career and (usually) a more productive employee. However, being away from your co-workers can have its drawbacks as the corporate jungle brings out the competitive beast in some people. Perhaps it’s human nature to assume that an employee who isn’t in the office isn’t actually working, or to use it as an opportunity to get a leg up on a team member. But even if your physical office seems blessedly free of corporate politics, don’t let “out of sight, out of mind” be the epitaph on the headstone of your career. Here are five tips to help you survive and thrive in your career without being chained to a desk.
