list is growing- Sally keeps a copy of each resource on her computer's hard drive, carefully filed so they are easy to access- Sally distributes these to her colleagues when they need to be written or reviewed as email attachments, and they pass them to each other in the same way when they need assistance- Sally has found this shuffling of resources to be time consuming and efficient, especially when several people need to be working on one unit at the same time- She feels that they are safe on her hard drive, and she backs them up regularly- But with over 1,000 documents, it is getting unwieldly, and colleagues have suggested to Sally that she look for a cloud-based solution to her filing problems- You have recently been hired as Accounting Incorporated's Administration Manager, a
