Why Business are moving to Cloud?

Many businesses are migrating their system to Cloud due to the many advantages of what cloud computing can offer. With an increasing number of web-enabled devices used in today's businesses (i.e. smartphones, tablets, IoT devices), accessing data on the Cloud is easier and more convenient.

Below are the Top 5 Benefits of Cloud Computing:

  • Easy & Fast Deployment: Cloud service can be deployed in a matter of minutes rather than weeks since there is no need to purchase, install and network a new hardware server. By getting up and running                        more quickly, businesses can benefit from quicker returns as well.
  • Scalability & Flexibility: Cloud offers scaling for your utilization at an instance to suit any situation your business might face. Rather than spending and waiting for long lead times to purchase and install upgrades for your equipment, using cloud frees up time required for these task so you can focus on running your business.
  • Business Continuity & Recovery: Any incident/downtime in the critical systems can be very costly to a business. Cloud ensures that your data is always backed up and protected in a secure and safe location, thus not affecting your business when you experience a natural disaster, power failure or other crisis on-premise.
  • Accessibility & Mobility: Cloud-based programs are more accessible than hardware-based programs, allowing employees to access data from anywhere so they can continue their work on-the-go especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Lower CAPEX Cost: Rather than purchasing expensive systems and equipment for your business, you can reduce your costs by using the resources on Cloud. A pay as you go model allows businesses to only pay for the resources they use.
