The cloud. Ever feel like itís all just hot air? People go on about it so much but isnít it just for the Googles of this world? Not at all. Cloud can bring your enterprise some big benefits. So lets cut out all the chit-chat and get right down to it
1. It keeps you up-to-the-minute.
You don’t need to worry about software upgrades or getting your IT guys to install the latest version. It
happens automatically – all you need is a browser.
2. It frees up your IT crowd.
Your cloud supplier takes care of all the technical stuff. So your IT experts can take care of the day job, making sure everything else runs smoothly.
3. You get what the big boys get.
Cloud brings you enterprise level software for a fraction of the price. The cost of the tech is spread across all
customers, so you get solutions from tech giants like Oracle, and your cloud supplier gets the bill.
4. You and your team can work wherever you need.
Cloud makes it easy to access data securely from multiple sites. So if you need to take work home with
you, you can start right from where you last left off.
5. You can work on the move.
It’s ideal for mobile working. So if your colleagues are out and about, they can access information and
update data. No time is down time.
6. You free up space – and save money.
Forget about having servers on-site, all your data can be held in the cloud. So you avoid investing in expensive kit, use your space in more productive ways, and save on energy bills too.
7. It’s cash flow friendly.
Data, software, support, it’s all taken care of with one simple monthly fee. Managing the cash flow is so much easier, and if ever there’s an issue with the IT you won’t face unexpected costs.
8. It grows with you.
With cloud, you only pay for what you need, and your provider can expand your solution as you go. So if you’re growing or downsizing, cloud can fit snug as a glove.
9. And finally, it’s secure.
Proper cloud systems are monitored and tested 24/7, 365 days a year, with all your data housed in military grade data centres. It’s literally bombproof, and much safer than a typical on-site system. In fact, HMRC said they moved to cloud to enhance their security.
