With the help ofthis, researcher can easily draw a valid conclusion and also attain positive outcomes. For this,investigator includes literature review of various authors to take right decisions.Concept of cloud technologyAccording toRahimi and et. al., (2014),Cloud Technology is considered as a shared poolthat constitutes configuration of computer system resources so that efforts of management can beminimised. This is basically done over the internet and it has been analysed that company whoare using Cloud Technology have minimised their cost of IT infrastructure as compared to firmswho are not using same. Company can make use of Cloud Technology in different forms forexample: LSI Architects (Design) Ltd, other than storing important data they can use it fordeveloping new applications, hosting websites and blogs so that information can be provided toits clients.In addition to this, Cloud Technology is assisting firm in transforming them fromtraditional form which was complicated and expensive to modern one. As a result, Cloudtechnology is a better way of eliminating problems which can be faced by companies whilestoring information and data. Henceforth, the process is rapidly elastic as it assists company inbalancing resources that are available in Information Technology. Basically, the concept ofCloud Technology is entirely depends upon components which are further classified into threecategories that are as follows:Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS):This provides company with a processingenvironment like servers, firewalls etc., moreover, IaaS can be implemented in firms throughvarious kind of technologies such as grid or cluster.Platform-as-a-service (PaaS):Through this organist enable themselves in developingand running their applications in a better manner. In addition to this, authorization, authenticationand session management is an integral part of this service.3
Software-as-a-service (SaaS):It is determined as more advanced and complex cloudbecause with the help of this, company can resolve their problems which are related to businessintelligence, e-mail, conferences etc.,Therefore, the concept of Cloud Technology is wide and understanding the same is quitedifficult. Biggest advantage of this model is that it assists company in storing importantinformation in limited cost and increasing end-user productivity and collaboration. Henceforth,LSI Architects (Design) Ltd., after implementing Cloud Technology can improve its reliabilityand continuity. Moreover, company can opt this technology from different Cloud Providers likeGoogle Cloud, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure etc.,Importance of cloud technology in business organizationFrom theLaudon and Laudon, (2016), point of viewCloud Technology has evolved as anew concept which is delivering computing resources and services to its clients. Companies whoare providing Cloud technology are known as Cloud providers. According to many experts theybelieve that with the help of Cloud Technology many companies can be benefited.

The organisations who provide these kind of services are known ascloud providers and in return charge money on the basis of usage and services. This will depictthat there is huge relation between the concepts of cloud technology and storage of information.LSI Architects (Design) Ltd. Is architectural designing organisation which needs to createdifferent designs everyday as per the requirements of clients. Storage of such designs is thebiggest issue as it is essential for organisation to secure from their competitors also. Digitaltechnology has great emergence in today's world which covers different aspects which is helpfulto serve the different needs of an organisation. One of the aspect which is beneficial for LSIArchitects (Design) Ltd. Is that it fulfil their need of secure storage and transmission of designsto respective clients. Large number of cloud computing services falls into three differentcategories i.e. infrastructure as a service, platform as a service, software as a service. These canbe used by LSI Architects (Design) Ltd. To effectively operate their day to day functionalities.Infrastructure as a service (IaaS):This is considered as the most basic category of cloudcomputing service. This will allow the organisation to rent their IT infrastructure which includesservers, networks, operating systems, from a cloud provider on pay as you go basis.Platform as a service:This will create supply on demand environment under whichmany functions are performed related to software application includes development, testing,delivering and their management. The basic purpose behind its designing is to provide platformto easily create mobile applications without underlying infrastructure of servers, storage andnetworks which are required for development.5
