@Jordan- someday as we expand and move into mobile solutions we will have to use at least one cloud based product to support our growing business needs.

@Jordan- when companies find out the benefits of cloud and how they could integrate it with their existing systems and workflows, they would want to grab the opportunity to move into cloud solutions.

@Willaim- Most companies are afraid to take risk of moving their data to cloud, I feel they should first move less confidential data and ensure they have backup simultaneously locally. Eventually they could migrate the rest of it when they feel it's safe.

@NadineJ – as you said cloud vendors could do better in creating awareness in the industries by presenting cloud and they could even give them a trial run.

Not being williingto take a risk on anything that does not provide any value is not a case of fear, it is a manifeatation of common sense. 

Why in the world should I invest money in a system that offers no benefit to my organization while also having a number of potential risks? That is not the slightest bit logical, is it? Just because others who are not in a similar situation do something does not make it a good choice for me. 

And Besides all of those reasons, not following the crowd aqnd not using conventional methods is the main reason that my business is rewarded for solving problems for others.

Centralizing

I definitely agree with the article, Cloud storage gives a more centralized approach towards things. One does not have to worry about distribution of data to various people, instead there is a common folder which everyone can follow comforably.

Also, with your hard drive you are never sure when all of the data might get corrupted. I mean for me personally, I have experienced loosing very important data, just because my windows got corrupted. I am sure many of us has gone through that same stage once in a while. With cloud storage, we certainly dont have to worry about that.

Agreed, NadineJ. In the start, I was also having trouble with the cloud storage and getting used to its interface. They should certainly try to make it more simple for general public as well.

William K, I guess the article was meant for areas of design applications where different designers are working on a project. Definitely, if one does not need the cloud storage he does not need to follow the trend.

Even ten years ago, when I was working at a company with ties all over the world, we had a program that did the same things for us. I don't recall the name, but it included utilities on our computers and a server site someplace that I don't recall either. But we had written guarantees of file accessability and security.

Now I wonder just how much this cloud service costs, I am certain that none of it is free.

Iterative design — the cycle of prototyping, testing, analyzing, and refining a product — existed long before additive manufacturing, but it has never been as efficient and approachable as it is today with 3D printing.
People usually think of a time constant as the time it takes a first order system to change 63% of the way to the steady state value in response to a step change in the input -- it’s basically a measure of the responsiveness of the system. This is true, but in reality, time constants are often not constant. They can change just like system gains change as the environment or the geometry of the system changes.
At its core, sound is a relatively simple natural phenomenon caused by pressure pulsations or vibrations propagating through various mediums in the world around us. Studies have shown that the complete absence of sound can drive a person insane, causing them to experience hallucinations. Likewise, loud and overwhelming sound can have the same effect. This especially holds true in manufacturing and plant environments where loud noises are the norm.
The tech industry is no stranger to crowdsourcing funding for new projects, and the team at element14 are no strangers to crowdsourcing ideas for new projects through its design competitions. But what about crowdsourcing new components?
It has been common wisdom of late that anything you needed to manufacture could be made more cost-effectively on foreign shores. Following World War II, the label “Made in Japan” was as ubiquitous as is the “Made in China” version today and often had very similar -- not always positive -- connotations. Along the way, Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia, and other Pacific-rim nations have each had their turn at being the preferred low-cost alternative to manufacturing here in the US.
