This infographic comes to us from, and shows how cloud computing could save the UK billions each year, since snow days often shut down business. According to

As the infographic shows, the UK economy has been losing up to 1.2 billion a day during the current bad weather as up to 1/5th of the workforce has been unable to get to work. Over half of all these workers have no access to their work systems or the ability to work from home using systems such as Microsoft BPOS or Microsoft Office 365. The price of provisioning such systems has been prohibitive in the past but with a Cloud IT System the provision would be automatically available and with added communication facilities such as Web Conferencing meaning you can reschedule meetings online whilst trapped in your home.

Overall, this is a pretty decent infographic, especially considering the wealth of information it is attempting to share. My main issue is that there is a lot of text in the upper fold of the infographic, which could deter people from reading through it to get to the guts of the information. The remainder of the infographic is well designed and interesting, but again the large amount of text is a little daunting, and the size of the text is a little hard to read. I suggest cutting down the text, but otherwise this is a pretty good infographic.
