The Cloud is not by any means a spanking new piece of tech, however, for many businesses it is the start of an exciting new chapter. Put simply, The Cloud lowers business costs, improves data security, and boosts collaboration. As Henry Ford said: “If I had asked my customers what they wanted, they would have said a faster horse.” It is only now, as The Cloud grows in maturity, that we can begin to see the full potential to transform business models and working practices. Here are five reasons why your business could benefit:
1. Economical Sense
Put simply, The Cloud negates the need for huge investment in infrastructure, staff and support costs. Plus, as well as balancing your company’s economy, it means the pace will be so much faster; ten years ago it would take up to a month to get a large enterprise system up and running; today it is possible to do it in minutes thanks to customer services in the cloud.
2. Go Greener
Whilst bolstering your green credentials, going paperless also reduces administration hassles. Before The Cloud, businesses needed to rely entirely upon complicated spreadsheets, or even physical records, both of which not only drained resources and slowed up processes, but also prevented businesses from appreciating the full picture.
3. Reduce Energy
When a business moves to The Cloud, people and energy costs can be significantly reduced, because most of the IT is managed by the provider. Without Cloud tech, businesses often require power-hungry servers – by eliminating these too, you can also reduce your business energy bill; win-win.
4. Increase Mobility
All company data being one accessible resource means that your company has the flexibility to work from anywhere; whether from home, meetings or in the office. The virtual office is real!
5. Expand Easily
Traditionally, businesses would purchase and keep spare servers, storage and licenses in the eventuality of growth. However, when using The Cloud, all you have to do is upgrade to additional storage space or features whenever needed. Your IT provider will be able to upgrade your package within minutes.
