When is the right time to move to a Cloud Solutions provider?
As many organisations have already made the big move to a Cloud Computing Solutions provider, it is expected that the adoption rates for Small to Medium Enterprises will increase marginally over the next couple of years. So, for any businesses unsure of when the right time is to move to the Cloud, we have comprised a couple of reasons why now is the right time to move to Cloud Computing.
Socioeconomic Status: Due to the current socioeconomic status, organisations are seeing more and more people requesting the use of Cloud solutions. This is because with the current state of the housing market, workers are moving further away from central cities in search for affordable house prices. This means that workers will be making longer and more expensive commutes to get to work. Moving to a Cloud Solutions provider now will not only reduce the need to commute to work, it will also reduce the need to have large office buildings. So by using Cloud computing, employees get to save money that would have been spent on commuting to work every day and employers get to save money that would have been spent on the maintenance and upkeep of large office space.
Purchasing Hardware: With technology advancing every couple of months, purchasing hardware such as servers and storage is no longer cost effective. This is due to the fact that technology usage is growing at lightning speed which means that software providers have to release new technology often to be able to cope with the high demand. For example if you have hardware that you purchased 2-3 years ago, the current equivalent of that hardware will most likely be 10 times more powerful. Moving to a Cloud Solutions provider now means that instead of upgrading, purchasing additional storage or purchasing a new server, you could simply use the computing power offered by the Cloud provider without spending large quantities of money upgrading your current hardware.
Security and Compliance: With the recently launched General Data Protection Regulations, it is now more important than ever to make sure that all your data is secured against any security breaches. Cloudsis can help you to reduce your GDPR liabilities as a data processor. Should your company move to a our Cloud solution, part of the requirements for safeguarding the data, move to the cloud provider.
Whereas the threat of a security breach is very real to every organisation, being on a Cloud solution minimalises the possibility of being breached because your data will be held in a highly secure UK data centre with the latest cyber security protection. Cloud solutions offer a level of enhanced security often impossible to replicate cost effectively for small to middle-sized organisations.
All data and information processing is carried out in a secure data centre, ISO 27001 certified, so you can be sure that every action is taken to ensure security is not compromised.
When is the right time to move to the Cloud? The time to move to a Cloud Solution is Now. This is because; not only does the Cloud save you time and money, it is a safer environment for storing client data which limits the possibility of data breaches and reduces the need to pay large quantities of money on disaster recovery, maintenance and hardware/software. It is also very flexible, scalable and allows its users to work on the go therefore increasing productivity.
