In the previous two articles we have explored the Cloud, debunking some of the myths surrounding it, and filled you in on some of the jargon that professionals use when referencing it. Now, we will explore some of the many benefits of Cloud computing in modern business.
The business benefits of the Cloud
Remote working is the future of business worldwide but, due to rapid transitions forced by the Covid-19 pandemic, many have found it hard to collaborate with their team all over the country – and, in some cases, the world. The Cloud makes it possible to mirror – or, in fact, improve – the levels of collaboration that your team are currently achieving in office. No matter where your team are on the globe, they can work simultaneously with each other and your in-house team on the same documents. Apps like the famous Microsoft Teams allow you to communicate with your team from anywhere, be it the comfort of your own home, the office, or anywhere in the world with an internet connection. The Cloud has the ability to increase collaboration to levels that we have never seen before.
Back up & continuity of business
Business-defining disasters do happen – no matter how much we wish they wouldn’t. When they do you need a way to access your data quickly – the Cloud is the solution. It allows you to carry on business-as-usual no matter the circumstances, thereby avoiding the problems caused by downtime.
The Cloud allows your organization to scale operations up and down in line with the way your business is performing – there is nothing worse than needing more from your tech when it simply can’t keep up with your growing business. Most organizations haven’t known what is happening from day-to-day over recent times, so having the ability to scale gives them a huge advantage over their competition.
The Cloud is the cheaper option. It can save a lot of money for the businesses that implement it as there are none of the usual capital investments required before you are able to start using it. Due to the scalability we mentioned in the last paragraph, the Cloud ensures that you aren’t paying for something which isn’t being used. You can easily change your monthly investments accordingly if you aren’t using – or getting value – from the features in your original plan.
A change to Cloud computing is highly recommended by us. Your organization – no matter its size – can benefit from it. Now that your concerns and confusions have been resolved you can make a revised decision on whether Cloud computing is right for you, and we have a feeling that it is. But, if you are still having trouble, or feel that you need expert IT support to be sure you are doing things as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible, don’t hesitate to get in contact.
