You may now be looking at cloud as an option for your business but are unsure of the costs and time involved. The good news is that cloud allows you the flexibility to take what you need and only pay for what you use. The beauty of being able to scale up or down as required in a quick efficient manner is what makes cloud so attractive.
You don’t need to be one of the ‘big guys’ anymore to consider cloud. It allows you to integrate technologies even as a smaller player that without cloud you would need considerable budgets and advanced infrastructure.
If you have the idea, then maybe cloud will allow it to become a reality. Innovation becomes a reality with cloud as certain barriers will disintegrate. Allowing you to access new markets, launch new products and services as you see fit. Cloud also allows you to automate certain functions within the business. This will save time and the resources can be pointed towards other more profitable activities. Cloud can improve workflows and free up time that was being spent on manual processes.
What would you do if your system crashed, or you were hacked or a natural disaster destroyed all your current information? Do you have a reliable backup? Cloud allows a secure place where a backup can be held off site, the peace of mind this brings can be priceless. Cloud allows for secure information sharing and helps with data protection regulations on the storage of data.
With fixed monthly costs and no major investments in new servers even your financial manager will be happy. Think about getting your comms room back and use it for something a bit more inventive.
A new year will bring new opportunities, maybe cloud is that opportunity for your business. Talk to Danush, Your Trusted IT Partner about transitioning to the cloud today.
