Business Growth Is Fueled by Cloud Usage

Business Growth Is Fueled by Cloud Usage

Most businesses make technology decisions with an eye on growth. One technology that is being used more than ever is cloud computing. There are many different benefits that an organization can see by using the cloud. Today, we will address these benefits and explain how cloud computing works to facilitate business growth.

Flexibility and Scalability

The first major benefit that a company can see from implementing a cloud platform is that it enhances organizational flexibility. A move to the cloud can help your business function the way it does best. In using a cloud platform, there won’t be restrictions on where or when your staff can access applications and data, a major benefit that will allow them secure access to the platforms and information they need when they need them.

Cloud platforms also don’t waste your capital. It gives a business the chance to pay for the computing that it needs at the time. If you plan on growing, you can add more. If you need to scale back after a big project, you can do that too. It allows for strategic expenditures and for cost mitigation when needed. 

Cost Savings

Speaking of cost, the cloud provides a whole different view of IT. Depending on how you implement it, it can be extraordinarily less expensive than hosting your own applications and data. The main cost savings come from not having to buy tens of thousands of dollars' worth of hardware to run the applications that your business relies on. That benefit, coupled with the anytime, anywhere access cloud services give your staff, makes cloud-hosted infrastructure a good decision if you are looking to save some green.

Security

For years cloud platforms have been maligned as being insecure. Since most cloud platforms are maintained by IT professionals, you can rest assured that your applications and data stored in the cloud isn't low-hanging fruit. These systems are professionally managed and protected against data loss, hardware corruption, ransomware, and many more threats. They may not be guarded by a moat filled with crocodiles, but cloud vendors know that keeping their clients’ data secure is a paramount consideration if they want to remain in business.

Productivity and Efficiency

The best parts of the cloud are the many ways in which your organization can use it. There are options for server hosting, redundancy, application deployment, storage, collaboration, you name it. Cloud-hosted IT is, in its nature, more shareable, more accessible, and those variables fuel better collaboration, better productivity, and an efficiency that can be seen on the bottom line.
