Cloud technology allows your company to more easily scale up and down based on system needs. When you host software on site, you have to invest wholly in the server required, whether or not you’re utilizing that server fully. If the software is in the cloud, on the other hand, you only have to pay for what you use.
You also have access to your programs and data anytime, anywhere you choose to be, which opens up tremendous opportunities for remote work and greater efficiency.
Finally, consider security. Data loss is not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when – and, unfortunately, it happens to every company, big or small. More than half of businesses locate their disaster/backup systems in the same physical location as their primary system – red alert! If you only have one copy of your system’s backup at your office, and your hardware fails or a breach occurs, then a backup is completely useless. In a bit of irony, it turns out that the safest place to be during a storm (whether literal or figurative) is “in the cloud”.
Cloud computing, if done properly, can make your business much more safe and efficient. However, a cloud solution is only as good as the quality of the research, the implementation, and the follow-through. We’re experts in cloud and mobility services, and can tailor a solution that will support your goals.
