As of now, it’s predicted that 83% of enterprise workloads are in the Cloud1. Has your business considered how you could reap the benefits of online solutions? If not, check out the benefits of cloud migration below:
1. Increased scalability
Depending on the size of your organisation and business needs, the scalability of on-premise software could be an expensive problem2. Installed solutions require longer implementation and cannot simply be switched off during periods where you don’t require the services. Cloud solutions on the other hand are extremely scalable, meaning you can purchase as much or as little of a product on an ad hoc basis.
Cloud systems claim faster uptime than their predecessors in traditional IT infrastructure3. This is because software can be deployed much quicker online than the long installation process and maintenance required by on premise. If you work in a fast-paced environment, you need tools at your fingertips to be able to fulfil your job requirements. Therefore, cloud migration will enable your business to operate faster, thus enhancing your own product offering and improving customer service.
Businesses are always looking to cut costs where possible. 20% of companies are concerned about the initial cost of implementing a cloud-based server4, however most solutions are pay-as-you-go, meaning you’ll save more money in the long run by only paying for what you need. This is as opposed to the high costs that sometimes come with having complicated installed software.
4. More secure
Did you know 94% of businesses claimed to have seen an improvement in security as a result of cloud migration? Additionally, 91% said it’s now easier to meet government compliance requirements. That said, when choosing a cloud provider it’s important to learn about their security protocols5. Do your research and ensure they have sufficient measures in place before outsourcing to them.
