    Cloud computing will become the center of data management, and even archiving and data sharing within teams, project members or departments will be performed by cloud computing in the future, as today’s island way of data storage and the creation of several copies will disappear.

  • This will be a benefit, especially for the management of security around sensitive data, such as client data.
