In a recent post, we stated that moving your business to the cloud is one of the best decisions you can make in 2016. We primarily focused on what the cloud is and how it is changing businesses. In this post, we are going to share 5 compelling reasons you need to move your business to the cloud!
- Freedom: One of the greatest hindrances to buying new hardware and software solutions is that you can’t try them before you invest a lot of money. With a cloud based solution, this isn’t the case. You don’t need to make a large investment upfront because your cloud provider has done it for you. This gives you the freedom to try out a new system without experiencing buyers remorse!
- Collaboration: As we mentioned in our previous article, one of the biggest benefits of the cloud is the ability to work from any location, at any time. When all your data is stored in the cloud, it is accessible to everyone you give permission to. Now, your team can easily work on the same project from different locations!
- Security: What would you do if all your most important data was suddenly destroyed or deleted? With in-house servers, this is a real possibility. Cloud-based solutions, however, are backed up regularly, in an off-site location. This virtually guarantees you will never lose precious data or have to deal with profit losing down time.
- Scale: Another benefit of moving to the cloud is that your IT infrastructure can grow as your business grows. If you host everything yourself, you will have to upgrade as you grow, incurring more costs. This can cause a company to miss strategic growth opportunities due to poor IT systems. With a cloud-based IT solution, you can increase and decrease your IT system easily as your needs change!
- Cost: The biggest reason to move your business to the cloud is the cost savings. Buying your hardware and software as well as paying someone to set it up and maintain it is very costly. Moving to the cloud means you have experts overseeing your IT systems 24/7! This frees you up to focus on your business and doing what matters most!
