Should Your Small Business Move to a Cloud Computing Infrastructure?
Cloud Computing is the delivery of on-demand resources typically delivered from a Data Centre and delivered on a Pay-As-You-Use model. It can include:
• Applications (such as email or a CRM system)
• Computing & Processing Power
• Security / Identity Management
• Networking Functionality
• Data Backup & Continuity
• And much, much more
There are quite a few benefits that businesses see from Cloud Computing. Here are 6 of them:
1. Remote Access.
Remote workers can access sensitive data, documents, and files securely from anywhere globally if they have a stable internet connection. This means you and your team can work quickly and securely from anywhere in the world as long as you have a tablet or a laptop. Perfect for working from home or checking in while you're on holiday.
2. Low Physical Business Costs.
A Cloud Computing Infrastructure can eliminate the need for small businesses to manage complex physical and onsite IT infrastructure. So no more costly servers!
3. Improved Collaboration.
Real-time sharing allows workers and managers to work together on the same documents/files securely from anywhere at anytime in real-time.
4. Cloud Computing Security.
Reputable Cloud Computing providers invest tens of millions of dollars annually on advanced security measures, protecting your data better than you can yourself.
5. Business Continuity.
A power outage or disaster at your physical office doesn’t mean that your team won’t have to stop work. They can simply shift to working from home (or their favorite coffee house) until things are back to normal.
6. Predictable costs.
Most pricing plans are based on a per user model. So if you're thinking of taking on a new starter, then you can easily see how much extra this will cost you each month
