“Cloud Computing” refers to the shared infrastructure, platforms and software that users access via the web in a 24/7 format. Instead of storing information in their own data centre’s physical servers, businesses on the “Cloud’ rely on servers maintained by the cloud computing software providers. Cloud-based solutions and applications are now emerging within the logistics and supply chain markets. They are scalable, manageable and cost-effective. Users can access cloud computing from various types of devices including desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones.
