whatiscloudCloud computing is — with pun very much intended, a nebulous concept at best with many business owners. However, adopting this new paradigm of business is a critical strategy, especially if business continuity, team productivity and collaboration, mobile access to data and lower costs are important to you.

Google Solutions Architect Loren Hudziak helps demystify the concept with me at the Society of American Florists (SAF) 2016 Convention in Maui at the “Streamlining Your Shop in the Cloud” session. We feature two florists as panelists who have successfully migrated their businesses to the cloud: Manny Gonzales of Tiger Lily Florist in Charleston, SC, now a long-time user of the cloud and Josh Glass of People’s Flowers in Albuquerque, who just migrated his shop this year.
