Initially, people used to purchase software products on compact disks (CDs). The disk was then installed on computers to make it easy to use services. Some also gave money to those traveling overseas to get them the right software. However, that has completely changed through the use of cloud computing. Cloud computing has also made it easier to carry out startup operations. Businesses can store their information in the cloud. This makes it easy to share the document. They can also carry out many activities through the internet.
