10 Reasons on Why Cloud Computing Makes Your Employees Efficient   Migrating to the cloud is a huge decision and therefore you need to weigh several pros and cons of before making any sort of changes in your infrastructure and the way of working. The ultimate goal of doing any new change in an organization is increasing ROI (Return On Investment); which also directly proportional to increasing the effectiveness and productivity of the employees.   As per the surveys were done in the last decade, the organizations have voted in the favor of adopting cloud computing and said that they are benefitted from this change. Employee productivity has increased in multiple ways like reducing downtime, increasing communication efficiency and collaboration.   Here are 10 reasons on why cloud computing makes your employees efficient –   Reduction in Downtime   Seeing a downtime is a nightmare for the organizations and everyone wants an efficient service so that they hardly ever see this nightmare. Cloud service providers dedicate a special team to look after the smooth running of services for their clients. The technical support team ensures that the issues are responded at a faster rate. These steps help in reduction of the downtime and hence contributes in increasing employee productivity.   Optimum Usage of In-House Resources   To enhance the efficiency of the company for an increased time, the cloud computing team makes sure that the team doesn’t get stressed due to the day-to-day tasks. Instead, the service provider sees to it that the team focuses on the new strategies and customer-specific problems. So, the organization utilizes the IT resources more efficiently and divides the tasks according to the team’s expertise.   Enhancement in the Collaboration   The most known benefit of cloud computing is the ease of access. Employees are having the ease of accessibility by which they can fetch whatever they want from the cloud at anytime and anywhere. The feature of reaching out to the colleagues in real-time irrespective of location and time has given employees a liberty of work. Due to an increase in effective collaboration, companies have reported that productivity is increased by 400%! So, that is quite a big number!   Adaption with the Market   The clients after shifting to the cloud, get the ability to use the latest tools and features. The feature of scalability, especially the vertical auto-scaling feature caused a big revolution in the cloud industry. This rise in flexibility gives organizations the power to serve to the heavy load requirements of clients on demand. Having the right and time-saving tools can make the employees more productive.   Integration with Current Systems   Generally, the major amount of cloud computing platforms easily integrates into different software applications. This seamless integration offers various benefits to the employees like switching between the tools instead of the manual passing of the information. Automatic switching between the tools consumes less time and is very likely to be error-free.   Disaster Recovery and Prevention   There are situations where some sort of disaster can occur and wreak havoc on your organization. It may be due to online threats, malware or, ransomware attacks. The disaster recovery services provided by the cloud service providers can help you in dealing with such crisis situations. Due to virtualization, it is now possible to have multiple clones of your data easily available at the data centers.   Increase in the use of own devices   Any internet-connected device has the potential to turn into a work machine depending on the load that device can take and the functions which need to be operated. Employees can now become more responsive on-the-go and hence this increases the productivity.   Increased Competitiveness   After the research, many business owners say that they have gained a competitive position in the business race. Implementing cloud computing made them unable to capitalize the opportunities rapidly than other competitors. The technology gives organizations the power of speed and agility. Due to this power, the SMBs can easily come in the competition with bigger companies.   Security Services Virtualized Too   With an increasing number of security breaches, ransomware attacks, and online frauds, there is even more necessity of a top-notch security service. Such attacks restrict the employees from getting access to data files, and the downtime can affect the productivity. Reputed cloud service providers have specialized security services which can prevent such threats, and even if they happen, they can make you recover quickly. Thus, this security-as-a-service also increases the productivity of your organization.   Efficient Handling of Huge Chunks of Data   Due to cloud computing, handling the enormously increasing data is getting very smooth. Employees can sort, analyze, structure, design, and organize big data in a matter of minutes. Moreover, the data, statistics, and analytics can be easily shared and accessed across the organization, or even several branches of the organization swiftly in real-time. This makes decision-making super easy due to reducing the errors and repetitive efforts on the same tasks which lead to wastage of time.   All in all, cloud computing provides lots of ways which helps in increasing the productivity and efficiency of your organization and obviously in turn, of the employees.
The Passing of the Seasons by Adam Christian
The Passing of the Seasons:Tales of broken lives all around us is my first professionally published work of fiction. Each of the eight major characters featured give in turn their testimonials, exploring ideas about who they think God is, what he wants, and how this affects their relationships with one another. Some remain friends, while others will eventually go their separate ways. The story draws on life rather than starry-eyed idealism. Situations a person may encounter in the real world. This means faith is not instant, solutions are seldom neat, tidy, or conveniently timed, and belief is not an instant cure-all to worldly woes. I'm honored by the opportunity to share this story with you. Enjoy. The Passing of the Season is available for purchase (printed edition) through the various Ingram Publishing outlets such as the Amazon and Barnes & Noble websites. I have also seen it on Google books. It is published by Christian Faith Publishing. It is just under 150 pages. Retail is generally $14.95, but there are deals out there so look for them. An e-book version is in the works, but is not yet commercially available.  Web info: To go to the Christian Faith Publishing book website: To check out the book's 45 second YouTube trailer directly, Click on the following link: Note: This trailer is also accessible from the CFP book website or the Faith Social Network book site under the "Video" tab.

New Addiction Ministries
We believe:  *the Bible to be the inspired, the Only infallible, authoritative Word of God. that there is One God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  *in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.  *that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. *in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by who’s indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.   *in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation which is the second death.  *in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. Sinner's Prayer - Recognizing the Need The "Sinner's Prayer" is a term that describes the words spoken by a person when he or she has recognized their sin and their need for a relationship with God through Jesus Christ.   “Lord Jesus, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from God. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that you, Jesus Christ, the Son of God; died for my sins, were resurrected from the dead, are alive, and you hear my prayer. I invite you, Jesus; to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Heavenly Father, please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.”  If you decided to repent of your sins and receive Christ today, welcome to God's family!!! Now, as a way to grow closer to Him, the Bible tells us to follow up on our commitment.  *Get baptized as commanded by Christ.   *Tell someone else about your new faith in Christ.   *Spend time with God each day. It does not have to be a long period of time.  *Read God's Word! That Word is sharper than any two edged sword and is our weapon against the enemy: Satan!  *Ask God to increase your faith.  *Seek fellowship with other followers of Jesus.   *Find somewhere that you can WORSHIP God. Before you open your Bible, let's say a prayer and invite the Holy Spirit. Why do we do this? Because the Bible was written THROUGH the Holy Spirit and BY the Holy Spirit. If we read the Bible without Him:  #1 You will find the Bible difficult to understand   #2 Difficulty understanding leads to seeking simpler translations that don't always keep in step with God's Holy Word and leave out powerful things that you NEED.  #3 You will get a story from the Bible, but no Spiritual meaning which can be applied directly to your life; making God's Word seem to be tailor written JUST FOR YOU ! It is ALIVE!  "Holy Spirit, I know that you were present when this Word was written and that it was written by you. Please open my eyes, my ears, my mind, and my heart to YOUR WORDS. As I read, please read to me as YOU intended it to be read when you wrote it FOR ME! In Jesus' Name I pray... Heavenly Father, please erase from my memory everything that I have been taught about You that is not really about You. I want to know You for who YOU say You are, not who man says You are. In Jesus' Name I pray, Thank You Father, Jesus, and Holy Spirit; AMEN!" May God bless and keep you, may His grace shine upon you 💗 Reverend Desirée
