I had decided in early 2011 that moving our small company from a physical office space to the cloud would be good for our business in a variety of ways: allow us to employ and contract with top-of-the-line workers and take advantage of cutting edge technologies for both internal and external communications and operations. And because I travel so much (my husband is a composer, so we’re always going hither and yon for performances, residencies, etc.) and had learned how to work efficiently from almost anywhere, it seemed like a smart move. Making the decision was fairly easy, the reasons straight-forward, but implementing it proved to be a combination of amazingly simple to disturbingly complex.
Let me share with you what I now refer to as the good, the bad, and the ugly.
