IT Best Practices.
Control Your Data, Enhance Your Productivity, and Save Money With Cloud Computing
Technology is a jumble of burden and ease. On one hand, businesses can automate most tasks, easily handle massive amounts of data, and deliver exceptional customer service instantaneously.
On the other hand, the burden of maintaining, upgrading, and implementing all this technology is taxing companies of capital and limited resources.
But cloud computing not only makes your life easier, it carries most of the burden that comes with utilizing this technology, while giving you complete control over your data and enhancing your productivity.
The cloud offers an unprecedented level of connectivity, limited neither by device or physical distance. Employees on the go, in the office, or half way around the world have full access to company data, important documents, and urgent reports – all attainable 24/7 via desktop, tablet, or mobile.
This spur in agility allows you to easily streamline and analyze processes to ensure your company swiftly responds to customer interest and market volatility. For instance, tracking analytics in real-time allows you to adjust your priorities and instantly revise your strategy based on the most up-to-date data.
Because data is accessible anytime, anywhere, and from anything that has access to the internet, you and your employees have complete control over your company’s performance, allowing you to stay focused and bring your products and/or services to the market quickly.
Elasticity of Provisions
With the cloud, you can easily scale your resources up or down to meet market pressures and demands. Variable pricing as opposed to fixed costs allow you to move your capital where it’s needed, rather than taking a risk and providing for only one aspect of your business.
This elasticity of provisions allowed 82% of cloud adopters to save money and expand their productivity without the need to increase their workforce or dependency on software.
Furthermore, the cloud’s scalability can seamlessly transition your business from a local mom and pop to a huge enterprise without having to invest in physical storage or expensive hardware. Your growth becomes digital, essentially limitless, and completely under your management.
Globalizing your workforce has never been so efficient, productive, and economical with the cloud. According to one study, “73% of knowledge workers collaborate with people in different time zones and regions at least monthly”. The cloud can reduce the time it takes to send documents back and forth, the need for face-to-face meetings, and the inefficiencies caused by disorganization.
Employees can work together, cooperate, and stay connected with those in and out of their department. All tasks and workflows can be synchronized and enhanced, allowing your business to consistently deliver exceptional customer service. One report indicates that this real-time collaboration can potentially increase your company’s ROI by 400%.
