Cloud computing has become a huge trend in the last five years; IDC has predicted a 130% increase in cloud computing by 2016. There are so many benefits to moving to the cloud that companies cannot resist anymore. For example, companies prefer a subscription payment model because they only pay for how much data they need. Cloud computing recovery services have been a cost-effective way to back up your whole company. Also, security is improving all the time; there is continuous effort to provide cloud computing companies with top quality safety structure. Here are three interesting cloud trends to watch which could help boost cloud computing in the long-term:
- In a study done by Gartner, they predict the size of the cloud computing market could reach $150 billion in 2013.This is not a surprising number due to the excitement and benefits that cloud computing can offer businesses in the long run. An on-premise solution looks less appealing as the cloud computing market thrives.
- Mimecast did a statistic based study and found that 7/10 companies using cloud services will move new applications to the cloud. Only 70%? Have you heard the saying “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket”? This means some businesses are still skeptical about moving to the cloud. However, based on trends, they will probably move their applications to the cloud sooner or later.
- Gartner also predicted that 60% of server workloads will be virtualized by 2014.This was not news to me because of the number of benefits you get in return. You don’t need to purchase hardware; you can reduce your carbon footprint and lower your energy costs. This is a great way to save money in the long run. At WebSan Solutions, you have access to your data, through our secure network, in our SAS70/SSAE16 certified data centre.

Each week, the Globe and Mail seeks out expert advice to help a small or medium-sized company overcome a key issue. WebSan’s challenge was: How can WebSan persuade its clients to take training and implementation more seriously while preserving good business relationships?
We had three experts give us advice, and they came up with the following:
Make a case
Spend time with the senior management of its clients to press the importance of both sides adhering to the original training schedule.
A different financial solution
Consider alternatives to the punitive clause, such as an incentive-laden contract where the client pays a premium, but savings can be passed on to the client if all goes well.
Conduct post-mortems of your work and make sure you are not underestimating the project requirements.

As of April 1, 2013, the Government of Prince Edward Island is implementing the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST). The combined HST rate in PEI will be 14%, of which 5% will represent the federal part and 9% the provincial part. Further, the Government of British Columbia will be eliminating the HST and reinstating PST and GST on taxable services provided in British Columbia. As of April 1, 2013, you will be taxed GST at a rate of 5% and PST at a rate of 7%.
To create the ability to track these changes in Dynamics GP, one must utilize Tax Details and
Tax Schedules. Tax Details identify specific taxes and their rate of taxation. These are then assigned to & grouped on Tax Schedules for processing transactions in GP. Tax Schedules can be assigned to Customers, Vendors, Items, etc.
Setting up Tax Details
- Enter a Tax Detail ID and a Description.
- It is important to set the Type properly as Tax Details can apply to either Sales (to a Customer) or Purchases (from a Vendor) exclusively.
- Set a default GL Account to distribute tax transactions to in order to capture values in the general ledger.
- Set both the Based On & Round values depending on the tax. For HST & PST, these should be set to Percent of Sale / Purchase & To the Nearest Currency Decimal Digit respectively.
- Set the Percentage for the Tax Detail. For HST PEI, this is 14%. For PST BC, this is 7%.
Setting up Tax Schedules
The Tax Schedule Maintenance window contains two list boxes:
- The Available Tax Detail IDs list box displays a list of all the tax details entered.
- The Selected Tax Detail IDs list box displays the details added to this schedule.
- To add tax details to a tax schedule, highlight a detail in the Available Tax Detail IDs list and click Insert. The detail is inserted in the Selected Tax Detail IDs list and is included in this tax schedule. Continue selecting and inserting details until the complete tax schedule is created.
Assigning Tax Schedules to Customers/Vendors
Once tax schedules have been created and saved, the last step in the process is to assign the tax schedule to a customer or vendor, etc. If a new tax schedule is to be applied to a customer, navigate to the Sales > Cards > Customer. Then, select the appropriate customer & enter the appropriate value in the Tax Schedule field. To assign the tax schedule to a vendor, navigate to Purchasing > Cards > Vendor.
