Cloud computing has quickly become a problem-solver in the business world. It solves numerous issues that businesses face including addressing the needs of remote workers, hassles within the IT team, growth management and budget management. With the cloud solving so many business problems, it’s no wonder that most organizations are turning to the technology today.
Many businesses today have remote workers or branch offices. This can be difficult, as employees in these situations can feel out of the loop when all communications and decisions come from the main office location. This leads to decreased productivity, and that’s simply unacceptable in today’s fast-paced business world. There’s no better solution than cloud computing to ensure that everyone remains on the same page. The cloud helps with data sharing, collaboration, communication and overall productivity. Your users will have constant access to the business data and applications they need, as they have access to the virtual company work space that the cloud will create. This location is complete with data and applications that they can use at any time, on any device, in any location globally. Your users can work as easily from across the globe as they do sitting at their office desk, and that’s all thanks to the cloud. This capability is the driving force behind the majority of cloud adoption plans.
Today, the IT department is seen as a money pit and a place lacking innovation. Traditional IT manages on-premises hardware and software, but the majority of the time your staff has more to offer than that. With the cloud, it’s possible to transform your IT department and allow your staff to focus more energy on innovation, rather than on maintenance. You can implement new technology solutions in minimal time, without needing to purchase or maintain new hardware at all. With cloud computing, your hardware is located off-site, and management is left to an experienced cloud provider like us. We take on the responsibilities of management, maintenance , installation, upgrades, security and more to lighten the load for your IT team. Company-wide updates can occur in minutes, rather than hours or days, and it’s easy to add or subtract resources as necessary. Traditionally, these types of updates required time, energy and money that a business simply could not afford. Let us take care of the boring stuff. Take advantage of having skilled IT professionals and allow them to innovate and create solutions to drive your business.
A defining characteristic of cloud computing is scalability. What does this mean? Well, cloud resources are scalable, meaning an organization can increase or decrease resources in order to support business growth or save money during slower periods. This hasn’t been possible in the past, as businesses normally paid for solutions upfront and were stuck with them until they were willing to implement updates and pay again. Often, organizations overspent on solutions because they had to guess what they would need down the line. That’s an inefficient way to go about things and it makes it difficult accommodate changes in business. The cloud eliminates these issues, moving organizations to an operational expenditure model. This allows you to get what you need exactly when you need it.
Cost is a huge factor in whether or not certain organizations can adopt the latest and greatest technology. Smaller businesses especially struggle with balancing their budget and implementing new, efficient technology. With cloud computing, the business size won’t matter. Our cloud solutions mold to the unique needs of every business we work with, regardless of size or industry. We help you move from a CapEx model to an OpEx one, decreasing spending in countless areas. From server maintenance to power and cooling costs to software licensing to upgrade expenses, we handle a lot of the spending and responsibilities as your cloud provider. The business, on the other hand, simply pays per use, eliminating spending on resources that ultimately go unused. This evens the playing field, allowing organizations of all sizes to access the same technology.
Cloud computing allows organizations to focus on innovation and business growth, rather than constantly worry about the problems that plague them.
