5 Benefits Of Moving To The Cloud Now More Than Ever In The COVID-19 Aftermath
Steve Jobs smartly said, “I don’t need a hard disk in my computer if I can get to the server faster… carrying around these non-connected computers is byzantine by comparison.”
Well, Mr. Jobs, we, too, are trying to thrust organizations forward into a modern era by supporting their process of moving to the cloud.
Moving to the cloud is a systematic, tech-backed, and smart way of making your organization more efficient and productive. If you haven’t migrated to the cloud yet, well, Wake Up! 68% of the businesses in the United States, undertook cloud migration in 2020. Did you?
The COVID-19 pandemic has given impetus to new remote work culture across the world. Moving to the cloud is a way to ensure that your employees can access all data from anywhere, anytime, without affecting your work processes. If you are not convinced about how cloud migration can help, read on.
Benefits Of Moving To The Cloud
1. Better Cost-Efficiency
Cloud eliminates the need to invest in expensive hardware equipment, on-site servers, or the operation of data centers. This allows for the trimming of your IT budget, freeing up your cash flow that can be used for other scalability-boosting initiatives.
2. Facilitates Flexibility & Mobility
Your employees can access the data and apps from anywhere, which is the need of the day in the COVID-19 aftermath. They can work remotely, from any device with the data available at their fingertips. This on-demand availability, flexibility, and mobility also boost employee happiness.
3. Increases Collaboration & Boosts Efficiency
Amidst the pandemic, how many times have your employees felt handicapped because the data they need to get a project done is at the workplace, stored on a hard drive? This has affected their efficiency, derailing project completion.
Also, cloud-based file sharing and workflow applications let your employees work together just like they would from your workplace, getting real-time updates. With collaboration, it’s easier to communicate and complete a task.
4. Offers Higher Security
Cloud hosts use data encryption to prevent security leaks. Your team members can share files and retain privacy at the same time. Cloud also blocks unauthorized access. The automatic software updates include security updates that are rolled out regularly. Ensure an expert handles your moving to the cloud process, and you can be stress-free!
5. Supports Disaster Recovery
Your on-promise servers are vulnerable to physical damage. What if there is a natural or man-made disaster? In an emergency like a fire or flood, your data may be completely lost, causing a massive loss. In layman’s terms, the cloud backs-up your data. It’s the Batman to your Gotham-like data.
It’s The Era Of The Cloud
Most organizations are concerned about the security of their data, the cost-effectiveness of moving to the cloud, and accessibility issues. Another question that’s tough to decide upon is which cloud host to choose, Microsoft Azure, Microsoft 365, Amazon AWS, or something else?
