Justifying the Move to The Cloud

Cloud technology has existed for the best part of two decades. However, despite data that points to efficiency, cost benefits and competitive advantages over the old methods of business, many continue to work the old way. According to a recent study from the International Data Group, 69% of businesses already use Cloud technology in one capacity or another, while 18% say they want to implement Cloud technology at some point.

In a similar chorus, reports from Dell stated that companies spending big on data, Cloud, security and mobility enjoy a revenue growth of up to 53% faster than their competitors. As this data clearly shows, a growing number of companies and industry leaders recognise the many advantages attached to The Cloud technology trend. Better still, the technology is deployed to manage their businesses, thereby resulting in improved productivity, better customer service and drastically increasing their overall profit margins.

However, many still retain methods such as storing data on a PC, instead of in The Cloud.

Why Move To The Cloud?

There are many advantages, but mainly it makes sense from a business point of view. You can call it savings – doing more with less in terms of efficiency or security. Whichever you want to frame it, there’s no doubt that Cloud technology helps companies to focus on what’s important: the business.

Nowadays, all companies are under pressure to maximise the return on their investment to make it profitable. There are many reasons why you can justify transferring to The Cloud and here are some of the best:

Cost Savings

Doing more with less will always be a factor and Cloud technology reduces costs for many reasons. The most obvious is that many Cloud providers benefit from large economies of scale and therefore can offer more energy at a lower cost.

If you seek Cloud services, like Umbrellar Cloud Hosting, then get ready to use the ‘pay as you go’ model. This increases cost predictability and significantly reduces the cost of maintaining and upgrading security and traditional IT infrastructure.

The Cloud Has Less Operational Problems

Cloud technology may seem complicated, but in reality, it experiences fewer problems than other infrastructures. Because The Cloud runs on servers via a company that has the sole task of making it functional and error-free, it’s usually much more reliable than the server in place.

In fact, when a small error occurs, your Cloud provider is almost certainly searching for an instant solution. If this was your remote server, you’d need to file a complaint with technical support and ask the department to send someone to review it.

The average server owner is much more likely to miss small problems (as they are busy running a business after all). These soon become bigger problems that require time and money to solve them.

Improvement of Security

Many Cloud service providers offer small businesses world-class data protection, which includes physical protection against corporate disasters such as fires or floods, multi-factor authentication, advanced encryption and automated backup, as well as identity and management controls. All these measures allow small businesses to operate safely 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Even Cloud service providers are in the business of continuity. Security updates and server maintenance can be performed smoothly and without interruptions to productivity.

Emergency Recovery

Small businesses and those that rely on Cloud service providers can quickly recover data lost in the event of a disaster. Disaster recovery can be very expensive, but when data is in The Cloud, it doesn’t have to be that way. In the event of a catastrophic data loss caused by virus attacks or natural disasters, you’ll have backup copies of all the original files so that you can restore them quickly.

The Cloud Is Always Active

Have you ever forgotten a vital file at work? Perhaps your storage drive hasn’t saved it correctly or maybe your email login isn’t working. You won’t have to hurry to the office to retrieve something from your server if you’re in The Cloud as it is always active. So, if you have an Internet connection, you can get the applications you need, literally everywhere.

Greater Collaboration

Greater Collaboration

It takes fewer people to complete more work in The Cloud. Most of the time, there’s a minimal learning curve in software and hardware.

Cloud services significantly increase productivity through real-time business collaboration. Business owners and their employees can share and retrieve crucial information from anywhere, at any time and on any device.

This is achieved by keeping all company files in a central location, so that more people can work on a particular document simultaneously. Colleagues can chat with each other as they make the necessary changes. This process increases efficiency, strengthens collaboration and improves the final result.

Competitive Advantage

Using The Cloud allows you to quickly expand operations beyond the four walls of your business. Companies can now compete like never before, being able to access data from anywhere. This allows you to be more responsive and provide first-class customer service to suppliers and customers than larger competitors who do not take advantage of The Cloud.

Softer Mergers and Acquisitions

One of the big friction points of many merger or acquisition are the months (sometimes years) needed to import records and data from one system to another. Sometimes, the problem is so great that the complete transfer of records never happens; this isn’t just a small business problem, as government agencies also face this issue. However, the transition is smoother and faster with systems in The Cloud . End users in joint ventures can easily access a Cloud-based system.

Friendly for the Environment

Companies that adopt The Cloud only use the required server space, which significantly reduces your carbon footprint.The use of Cloud services involves 30% less carbon emissions and energy consumption than companies that use servers on the site.

So, here we are. Now show your boss!

Conclusion

The advantages of Cloud computing far outweigh the disadvantages. As of 2017, 85% of companies have executed a multi-Cloud strategy – the reason for which is quite obvious. Cloud challenges have generally decreased compared to last year, making adoption and use easier than ever. So, don’t hesitate; save time, money and resources by putting your business in The Cloud.
