Recent developments in cloud computing have seen the addition of the "human element" to the cloud and consequently the birth of the "human cloud".
The idea behind the "human cloud" is to make locations of workforce irrelevant and the virtualization of work possible. The "human cloud" describes tasks and projects, which can be performed remotely and instantaneously by people who are not employees but temporarily hired independent workers. Therefore, the "human cloud" provides a great opportunity for businesses to staff up quickly and effectively on an on-demand basis.

Beneficiary alternative to outsource certain tasks
