Today’s Software Decisions – To Cloud or Not To Cloud (1.0 MCLE)
Debbie Foster
The options available to you for purchasing hardware and software for your office has drastically changed in the last 5 years.  You no longer have to purchase servers for your office, and renting software has become the new way to ‘buy a license”.  This process is often referred to as "moving to the cloud."  The problem is, the cloud is not just one thing.  It comes in many shapes and sizes and moving to the cloud also means your client data would also be stored on the rented or hosted servers.  In this seminar, we'll explain the associated pros, cons, risks and ethical issues of doing this with your practice.  This seminar will explain your options, and give you some next steps to accomplish your goals.
