Most business owners and executives now know the many benefits of switching to the cloud…
- real time updates
- lower costs
- access to major applications
- enhanced data security for all employees, even remote workers
Despite these major incentives, many organizations are still delaying the transition to the cloud.
This usually results from fears about the transition and misconceptions about how the cloud works.
To help better understand the benefits, here are three benefits of cloud computing…
The cost savings can be more than most executives think
Depending on your business size, switching to a cloud-based system could result in staggering cost savings.
Even mid-sized companies can thousands of dollars on their technology costs simply by making this one change.
Try doing some quick math in your head:
How much does it cost you to update software packages and replace servers every few years?
What if you could trade those costs for a low monthly fee?
Tough decisions may be required.
Although switching to cloud computing is typically a seamless process, there are a few things you may want to consider.
For instance, some industries may require special software that might not yet be ready for the cloud.
This is only one example.
Many businesses transition to cloud computing with little more effort than signing a few agreements.
In order to identify any tough calls you may have to make during the transition, it is definitely worth while to talk through the process with your outsourced IT provider.
Cloud computing is more reliable and safer than you may realize
Business owners and executives often worry about data theft, safety and lost Internet connections as they question the impact of cloud-computing on the bottom line.
Although it is true that all technology has the potential to fail, cloud computing is actually safer and more reliable than most people think.
If that seems hard to believe, remember that your data is always going to be encrypted, then securely transmitted to a remote facility with trained security staff, engineers, automatic backups and multiple power sources.
You would be hard pressed to find an office or facility that can match that kind of security and reliability.
