How Cloud Computing Is Changing the World: Part 2

    Cloud has changed the way how we see things and how we can utilize technology at the very best. Here are some more verticals where Cloud has set its mark.

    Healthcare

    Healthcare has grown on a different level from how it was 2 or 3 decades ago. Medical imaging is one of them, which changes the way we receive and manage healthcare. Today, imaging is having the biggest effect on doctors, hospitals and other healthcare professionals and institutions. But, it will soon be affecting all of us in our everyday lives.

    At present, the biggest impact is the electronic medical records, which means that all of your healthcare data resides online so that other professionals who need access to it can do so without sending paper forms all over. You have a legal right, in the U.S. at least, to access your own medical records any time you want to.

    It’s in the early stages, but now it’s becoming more popular as is the idea of Telemedicine or the ability of a doctor with a webcam to diagnose your problems without you visiting the hospital. This is especially advantageous when it comes to those people who live in remote areas. Furthermore, for people needing specialized treatment that is not available in the region.

    The cutting edge of this technology is the ability of a doctor to remotely manage a robot performing surgeries which has a long way to go before it is performed everywhere. Deaths in the medical industry are majorly by human error, by doctors. If this kind of technology is perfected, then we could see a lot more lives saved.

    Mobile Apps

    Mobile apps on tablets and smartphones are another good example of running on the Cloud. Data is often stored on servers and used locally or accumulated from individual devices, aggregated, and sent back out to users, just like the way Waze provides traffic information or Google Transit gives you the bus schedule and the process to get from where you are to where you want to go. Many games store information like your score, level, etc., on the cloud, and even productivity apps like Microsoft Office also uses the local device for processing but stores the documents onto the Cloud. E-readers work the same way too. Read on a Kindle or Kindle app and you will automatically be synchronized to the last page you read on any device. Which makes it easy to switch from one device to another as you read.

    Any notes, highlights, etc., are automatically stored onto the cloud and synchronized between all devices. Many of the education apps described previously do the same thing. Now as the mobile industry expands, we tend to use them a lot for each and everything as it is fast and convenient as everything you need in on the Cloud and at your fingertips.

    Social Media

    In the past, if you wanted to keep track of friends and their life events, you had to call them or write them a letter. While now many people still keep up with an annual Christmas card or something similar, social media has changed all of it for most of us.

    At present, there are over a billion users on Facebook, not to mention those who use Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter and other ways to keep friends and family informed of what is happening in their lives. This category is already so global that little more needs to be said about Social media.
