Cloud applications; the best ones to make things easy for a company

Previously, on our own “How to know everything about the technology that surrounds us”, we have already talked about what cloud computing is: that option given by the Internet and its endless possibilities that allow you to store information not just within the hard disks of our computer, at the same time that it allows you to work with colleagues in real time, no matter where you are, and also operate without worrying about any space or location limitations.

The cloud sounds truly like the best thing ever in computer science, the alpha and the omega of technology. Therefore, all kinds of companies turn to several thousand cloud applications in their daily routine. There are all kinds of cloud apps, which is why today we are going to review some of the best ones that can help you in our day to day work. Take a piece of paper, a pen and something to keep you warm, because we are going up to the cloud.

Cloud apps: Microsoft Office 365 OneDrive for Business

OneDrive is the cloud service provided by Microsoft that enables you to have access to all the files you need in this world (within OneDrive and the ones you have access to).

It gives you the possibility to save and keep your files safe, send them to other users and get a hold of them from anywhere and from the device that you have at your disposal (this does not include Gameboys or Tamagotchis, obviously).

Broadly speaking, if you use OneDrive with an account provided by your company or your school, you can call it “OneDrive for Business”.

Cloud apps: Dropbox

If you have ever needed to store something in the cloud you will already know Dropbox, since it is a reference service.

Dropbox allows you, as a user, to store and synchronize files online. You can also share them with other users and technological devices such as tablets or smartphones. There are paid and free versions that allow you different options you can work with.

Its mobile version is available for Android, Windows Phone, Blackberry and Apple. Currently, it has more than 500 million registered users. That makes it a pretty big community.

Cloud apps: Salesforce

Here comes a set of tools suitable for sales or marketing company staff.

With Salesforce you will track your clients, potential customers and possible contracts more easily. Thanks to this, you can increase the loyalty and satisfaction of the customer. In fact, thanks to the Salesforce features, you can anticipate their wishes by monitoring their previous behaviors.

Cloud apps: Spotify

Regarding cloud applications aimed at companies, there is nothing better than Spotify. It entertains and calms down users while they enjoy their activities and consequent productivity.

Do you like music? Who does not? Well, here you have one of the largest online music collections around the world. There is no need to download it and occupy space. It is right there, in the cloud, waiting for you to put on your headphones and enjoy life and work to the rhythm of Queen, Power trip or The Strokes.

Its premium version, without advertising, costs some money. But if you do not care too much about ads, like on the radio, you can obtain Spotify for free.

Cloud apps: Evernote

Evernote is neither more nor less than a computer application whose purpose is organizing your life and your personal information through note files.

There are different versions for several operating systems and also a network version. It is suitable for Mac, Windows, Android, Iphone, Blackberry…

As if by cloud magic, all those notes, pictures, documents, audios, web pages that you have saved in Evernote can be synchronized and they do so automatically in any of the other platforms where you use it.

Cloud apps: G Suite

G Suite (formerly called Google Apps) is a service that provides several Google tools, but with a customized name, for the client.

It is made up of, among other features, several web applications that recall traditional office tools: Gmail, Hangouts, Calendar, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Groups, News, Play, Sites and Vault.

Currently, G Suite (we do not know when the name will be changed again, as Prince did in the good old days) is free for 30 days and then its price goes up every month and every year.

Cloud apps: LinkedIn

LinkedIn is a social network, but nothing like Facebook or Instagram: it is aimed at finding jobs. It is useful for all types of business, for workers and companies.

Yes, it is true that it is based on a user profile, similarly to the rest of social networks, but its purpose is for you to show your work experience and your great skills as a professional, so that the web gets you in contact with millions of companies or employees.

It was founded in December 2002 by Reid Hoffman, Allen Blue, Konstantin Guericke, Eric Ly and Jean-Luc Vaillant and in March 2013 it already had more than 200 million registered users.
