Other issues for businesses thinking of going to the cloud might be security risks like cyber attacks from both the inside and outside. Or even government intrusion if they so desired. Without handling

When transmitting the data from a site to the cloud, its necessary to take steps to avoid sending unencrypted traffic because it could be intercepted at some point. Also a secondary effect is the data is no longer in the facility control, there is a level of trust in place for the cloud vendor will take care of that data. Another key issue is the speed of transfer. To send and receive data, unless carried over large pipes, is time consuming and can slow the processing down. I've experienced this with working from a home based office, with consumer grade internet connections. There is a great speed difference between upload and download such that any data sent will take much more time to be received and acted upon. This can cause bottlenecks. RE: Adopting a New Communications Technology Eric Davis 9/1/2016 8:02:40 PM Unauthorized access to customer and business data, Once you outsource a service to a third­party server, you now have to worry about your staff and the vendor’s staff. More people have access to the data and systems that support the service, which means you have to extend trust to people you have never met. Availability risks, No service can guarantee 100% up time. When you rely on a cloud service for a business­critical task, then you are putting the viability of your business in the hands of two services: the cloud vendor and your ISP. RE: Adopting a New Communications Technology Jermaine Huggins 9/4/2016 9:39:56 AM There is certainly a temporal difference in how the three methods operate. Email is perpetual. It is sent, then it can be read and responded to at leisure as long as the server maintains one's email service. Video conferencing demands immediacy, two or more people have to be using the software at the same moment. Instant messages feel like a compromise between the two, providing a stream of communication that can be archived and re­read, while also being able to conduct real­time conversation. As Shonita mentioned earlier, email is great because it provides records (important when we're working with money) and it's standardized and everyone can just do it. IM is nice because it gets the message across faster because it indicates when the recipient is around to

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
