Moving to the cloud can be a risky proposition. We can help you make the move.
Cloud computing is a new topic that comes up more and more as technology increases and people demand information more quickly. In the fast paced internet world we live in today, cloud computing allows people to utilize software and hardware technology that they never had the luxury of taking advantage of. While technology can make people apprehensive, here is a top 10 list of reasons that moving to the cloud is an option that will save you time and money
- Lower costs. With shared ownership you can take advantage of having your infrastructure stored at a state of the art datacenter, and not blow your entire budget
- Rent vs. Own: Why own all that expensive equipment when it requires extra resources to test, fix and manage? These costs will never decrease, so renting is a better option
- Space/Time Saver: As the saying goes, time = money. With SaaS, companies are able to access real-time information of inventories and production leads to more accurate reports and better decision making for scheduling, forecasts, and budgets. This allows for prompt responses to customer questions and can help you with Customer Relationship Management. This is a small but crucial piece of cloud computing.
- Reliability: How reliable is your back-up plan? Do you have a back-up system in place in case your servers crash, or the power goes out? How about a duplicate or redundant system in another location in case of serious failures? This is all planned out with cloud applications. Testing is done frequently to the back-up systems to ensure integrity and functionality. Monitoring is done 24x7x365 to make sure you have the highest possible uptime rate to access your applications.
- Access 24x7:
All that is needed is an internet connection. Staff has connectivity on the road or after hours. Systems with mobile applications create another arm of connectivity besides a laptop. Global connectivity is available to you and all users of your system wherever your business might take you.
