…. and Improve Efficiency
Time is the most precious commodity for directors and staff of growing companies. Business Leaders are always on the look-out for new opportunities and ideas that will bring value by improving efficiency, savings costs and releasing more time to focus on building the business.
Migrating IT infrastructure to the cloud is now widely recognised as the next important business improvement opportunity. But why exactly is this? What is it about The Cloud that makes it the new vital business development?
Well, here is why:
Overall, migrating to a cloud platform removes the need for companies to invest in, manage, house, run and maintain costly on-premises IT infrastructure. Instead a cloud services supplier will migrate your business critical applications and data to a new, secure environment, hosted in the cloud. This frees up footprint, resources and capital. It also takes away the time burden of managing IT infrastructure within your company.
- Good cloud service providers look after IT security
Because of economies of scale, cloud service providers can implement IT solutions that are often only available to larger organisations. The best cloud service companies (not necessarily all) will focus on making sure your vital customer data is well protected. This is key to their business reputation, so they will pay particular attention to ensuring that their platforms are absolutely secure by implementing the highest, most advanced, security protections. Larger companies, however, tend to just provide the platform and will offer their security services for an additional charge.
- Cloud service providers look after the Infrastructure
As your applications are now hosted on a cloud environment, you will no longer need to maintain this infrastructure. Gone are the capital costs and time spent procuring servers and ancillary equipment. Also gone are the energy costs for running the equipment and environment control.
A good cloud services company will also maintain your operating systems and business critical software if you chose to host these on their platform. Because your software is managed in their cloud, they undertake all the updating and upgrades to your operating system, like Windows, as well as your general productivity tools and ERP systems. This means no more forgotten-about copies of Windows 7 running somewhere on your network, causing a potential security threat.
With a cloud platform, you can increase or decrease your storage and computational resources simply and quickly, usually at the click of a mouse. You will not need to go through the long procurement processes required to buy new servers or upgrade your existing equipment. This scalability is a powerful tool for any growing company but it can also work the opposite way, by quickly reducing these resources if they are no-longer needed.
- Good cloud service providers will do all the migration heavy lifting
A good cloud services company, like Innovate, will do all the migration heavy lifting for you. They will ensure that your new platform is exactly right for your needs and will ensure a safe and secure transfer of your digital assets to the cloud. Innovate has many years’ experience in Cloud Migrations and is an expert cloud consultant. We can offer you a seamless, stress-free cloud migration service and will guarantee that your data and applications will be securely migrated to your new cloud environment, and arrive intact.
- The Cloud is the future
There is no denying that the cloud is the future. All of the big names in technology have shifted their products and services into a cloud environment. There is the risk that companies not migrating could be left behind as a result.
All of these elements can combine to provide significant business advantage to your company as well as reducing the amount of time and money you spend managing in-house infrastructure. It is also clear that migrating to the cloud will release assets and team members, so they can concentrate on the more strategic task of building up your business.
