Benefits of Cloud Computing

Flexible Working, Reduced Cost, Data Security to name a few. There’s never been a better time to get your business into the cloud.

HOME > BENEFITS OF THE CLOUD

What is Cloud Computing?

In the words of Microsoft...Simply put, cloud computing is the delivery of computing services – including servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics and intelligence – over the Internet (“the cloud”) to offer faster innovation, flexible resources and economies of scale.

 

Typically, you only pay for cloud services you use, helping you lower your operating costs, run your infrastructure more efficiently and scale as your business needs change.

Reduced Costs

Cloud computing cuts out the high cost of hardware. You simply pay as you go and enjoy a subscription-based model that’s kind to your cash flow

 

Enhanced Security

Many organizations have security concerns when it comes to adopting a cloud-computing solution. However, a cloud host's full-time job is to carefully monitor security, which in most cases is significantly more effective than an in-house system.

“RapidScale” claims that “94% of businesses saw an improvement in security after switching to the cloud,  91% said the cloud makes it easier to meet government compliance requirements”

Total Flexibility

With the cloud, you can scale up or down instantly, in most cases. A 65% majority of respondents to an InformationWeek survey said “the ability to quickly meet business demands” was one of the most important reasons a business should move to a cloud environment.

 

Staff Mobility

The ability to access your organisations systems and data from anywhere on various devices, has proven to be an asset to most businesses. Being able to offer employees the option to work from home, could also improve employee job satisfaction.

Increased Collaboration

If your business has two employees or more, then collaboration is very important. After all, there isn't much point to having a team if it’s unable to work like a team. Cloud computing makes collaboration a simple process. Team members can view, share information easily and securely across a cloud-based platform.

 

Disaster Recovery

Unfortunately, there will always be things that are completely out of your control, it’s a business leader’s responsibility to prepare adequately for all kinds of emergency scenarios.

By outsourcing to a cloud provider or using cloud services, you are essentially paying for the responsibility to be passed onto a third party, which will take a lot of weight off your shoulders.

Loss Prevention

With cloud-based storage, all the data you've uploaded to the cloud, remains safe and easily accessible from any computer with an internet connection, even if the computer you regularly use, isn't working or has been lost or stolen.

 

Managed Updates

Patching, upgrading and testing hardware, operating systems and applications can take up days of staff time every month but in the cloud this is all taken care of by the provider. Leaving your staff with more time to work on new projects and innovations.

Competitive Edge

While cloud computing is increasing in popularity, there are still those who prefer to keep everything local. That's their choice, but by doing so, places them at a distinct disadvantage when competing with those who have the benefits of the cloud at their fingertips.

A recent Verizon study showed that 77% of businesses feel cloud technology gives them a competitive advantage.
