Using cloud technology has made a huge impact on the business world.
Although cloud-based technology costs a service fee, the small cost is worth the price. The alternative to using a cloud-based platform is hiring an IT firm to manage your secure data or have in-house hardware that requires a professional to set up and operate and also is energy inefficient. Recent studies done by Microsoft have shown you can save up to 80% on your IT budget using a cloud service. Additionally, as shown the same study done by Microsoft, using a cloud-based service can eliminate up to 90% of your energy cost associated with running in-house servers. On top of the cost savings, cloud technology is considerably more secure.
It has been proven that cloud technology is the most secure form of data storage and backup. As stated by a Clarium Group study, 57% of companies using the cloud affirm that it’s provided better data security than alternative forms of data storage. Using the cloud provides automatic updates that ensure that your data back up is done regularly. This frees up IT employees to focus on less mundane tasks which boosts business productivity. The cloud backup and security also help businesses to be more compliant. According to a Microsoft Dynamics report, 91% of SMEs say that cloud providers make it easier to adhere to compliance requirements. Scale your business with a cloud-based technology.
Employees that are given secure access to the cloud are able to access work from their own devices. Not only does this save time in the field, but it also creates flexibility and accountability. With tracking, the cloud creates a platform that allows users to manage multiple projects at once from any location while keeping track of individual contributions. Because the cloud updates automatically as new information is added to the platform, using the cloud provides real time results. Eliminate time lapse when making important decisions that is important to grow your business.
