…to the Cloud! And what a move it was! We hit all the things that go along with moving.
Packing: We decided where the stuff that we have always kept locally (with somewhat high IT costs) would go. To brainstorm we used Google Docs – allowing us to collaborate, make comments and updates real time.
Moving: We put all our stuff in the appropriate rooms. But better than “real” moving…we didn’t need to unpack anything. Each item was put exactly where we wanted!
Living in the new space: You know how, in the middle of the night, in your new house, you suddenly realize you forgot where the light switch was as you are making your way around? Gmail, Google sites and Google Docs are so intuitive it almost felt like we had installed those lights that turn on when you walk into a room!
The best part: Google updates in small increments and often so I am not waiting a year or more to pay lots of money for the newest release full of all the sparkly things I want! It’s like the house repainting itself, kinda.
Well, thanks for listening to this girl’s perspective (rev 1) on “Moving to the Cloud”
