The development of Cloud Computing changed the paradigms of work process design and is now beginning to be recognized as a breakthrough in productivity.
It began being a solution for certain type of IT driven businesses. Now it is a new concept to manage information that allows producing incremental efficiency in IT processing. It generates incremental efficacy in the use of the information within a more secure environment.
The IT aspects of cloud computing have achieved its maturity. The use of the benefits of cloud computing is at a starting stage. In most of the work processes it is just used as a different way to store and process information.
The efficacy of work processes of adaptive systems can be easier managed using this approach, which makes the natural integration of feedback processes possible.
The use of cloud computing is essential for EMR, EHR and decision support systems. But, as any new technology, it demands adapting the work processes to take advantage of its benefits.
Today, cloud computing is still an IT problem. The introduction of incremental efficacy in work processes will integrate the use of cloud computing in businesses.
