The cloud is a trendy tech buzzword that people love to say. It's meaning, however, escapes many—especially those lacking in technical vernacular. In fact, a recent Citrix survey found that out of 1,000 people polled, 95 percent of those who don't think they're using the cloud actually are. While interviewing, employees have even gone as far as lying about knowing what it is, as 14 percent of respondents said they've pretended to know the definition of the cloud during an interview.
That said, it's highly important for companies undergoing a new software adoption to educate their employees on what software-as-a-service means and what its full capabilities are. A growing number of new technology tools interact with or operate based on the cloud, so staff must not only know how to use it, but also what the best practices are and which habits to avoid, CIO argues. For example, if certain sensitive information is stored on the new cloud-based server, IT managers and training staff must point out that accessing this data from public Wi-Fi or an unsecured network is highly dangerous. Every employee needs to comprehend how to use SaaS, which can be accomplished with the proper software training.
