Most people are confused when you ask them to explain what the cloud is.
Simply put the cloud is where you may store files, or even software that you access via a web browser. Some examples are things like cloud based accounting packages such as Xero or CRM software like Zoho
Another example of a cloud service is Microsoft office 365, this is a hosted email server.
The advantage of many cloud based software solutions is that they are normally billed on a monthly or annual basis, some solutions even offer a "lite" version for free which in some cases is sufficient.
Additionally it enables remote working or working as part of a team that may be spread across different locations to be much easier.
