When Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s chief executive officer, sent his first letter to employees, he spoke of what he thought was great about the company and disclosed his vision for what lies ahead for Microsoft. His rallying message encouraged employees to “prioritise innovation,” focusing greatly on mobile and the cloud.
In our early history, our mission was about the PC on every desk and home, a goal we have mostly achieved in the developed world,” Nadella wrote. “As we look forward, we must zero in on what Microsoft can uniquely contribute to the world. The opportunity ahead will require us to reimagine a lot of what we have done in the past for a mobile and cloud-first world.

Cloud computing has become an incredible differentiator for businesses worldwide, especially small to mid-sized organizations. Historically, the technology that larger companies used wasn’t always available to smaller organisations because of high costs and its demand for management resources. Today, cloud software has leveled the playing field.
Cloud recruitment software, in particular, has fundamentally changed the way recruitment agencies operate, drastically increasing their productivity while reducing administrative costs. In fact, over time a true cloud solution can save recruitment agencies money. When comparing it to other offerings, a true cloud solution costs 46% less than an on-premise solution and 35% less than a hosted solution. On top of saving recruitment agencies money, our top cloud recruitment software increases productivity by being available anywhere, at any time. Recruiters can access the software as long as they have an Internet connection. Whether it’s at an on-site meeting with a client or at home after hours, recruiters can respond to client requests and applicant submissions faster with cloud-based recruiting software.

real-time APIs of a cloud platform
