Thinking About Cloud Computing? What questions should you be asking and why. – Part 10

Cloud Computing - What happens when the Internet goes outWhat Happens when the Internet Goes Out?

Cloud Practice Management Applications (PM Apps) rely on the Internet.  No Internet = No PM App.  This is the biggest worry of any Cloud user.

Ask yourself what the longest interruption in your Internet service has been?  5 minutes?  An hour?  A day or more?   Could you run your Practice without your PM App that long?  5 minutes?  Sure.  An hour? Maybe.   A Day or More?  No way!

It’s not a question of “If your Internet Connection will go out”, but rather just when and for how long.

Makes you cringe doesn’t it.  You need to prepare.
