Here are a few reasons why...
If you're considering migrating to the cloud, here are just a few of the benefits you can reap.
From reduced costs and improved efficiencies through to better security and easier backup and restore capabilities, it's the way forward. The recent COVID pandemic has led to a rush of businesses making the decision to invest in advanced digital and cloud solutions to facilitate home and hybrid working.
It's all about using the internet to deliver your IT requirements when and where you need them. Rather than storing and accessing data and applications locally, you benefit from the power and investment of cloud providers such as Microsoft, Amazon and Google.
But is it right for you? Let's take a look at some of the advantages.
A vital consideration for every business. Migrating to the cloud removes the constant upgrade cycle experienced with servers and other capital expenditure items. Your IT systems are constantly up to date and ready to grow with your business. Migrating to the cloud will effectively modernise your IT provision.
At the same time, you benefit from the constant investment in security made by the major providers. Rather than being held on different local devices, your data is protected in the Cloud, with secure access.
Easy backup and immediate disaster recovery
The Cloud isn't subject to normal operational threats like fire and flood. Even if your office facilities are down, your people can still access the vital information they need to keep the business up and running during the recovery period. Human error is covered too, with multiple backups held and instant access to recovery.
The easy route to effective flexible working
It's a great mobile work environment, easy, accessible and affordable, pretty much permanent up-time. Migration to the cloud improves collaboration and productivity for most businesses. Your people can work closely together and share documents and files in real time. Communication is improved, even where people are working from different locations, and matches people's aspirations for working from home or hybrid working.
Use and pay for what you want and what you need. It's easy to increase capacity, and equally easy to scale back if your business is subject to seasonal peaks and troughs.
Choosing the right partner for your Cloud migration will ensure that the process goes smoothly and that you have the support you need in the early days.
Powerful analytics and monitoring services
Built in analytics and monitoring will help you manage your infrastructure, logging key metrics and notifications.
