• If you have a Smartphone, Tablet, or other mobile device
▫ You might be a Cloud user
• If your email address is anything other than your company name (gmail.com, yahoo.com,
outlook.com….)
▫ You might be a Cloud user
• If you access your applications via a web browser or mobile app
▫ You might be a Cloud user
• If you don’t know where the server is located, what OS it is running, or who is actually
managing it
▫ You might be a Cloud user
• If you use Dropbox, OneDrive, Office 365, Google Docs, Safesforce, Azure, AWS…
▫ You Are a Cloud user
You Might be a Cloud User…
On the other hand, if you access your applications from a fixed location, using a
character-based terminal or emulator, or if your application involves a lot of
archaic external interfaces (like tape drives), you probably are not a Cloud user.
