So is your business ready to move into the cloud? You would be able to roll out new apps in days and you would have increased security and efficiency. Is it the right time? See below to see if your small business has the need.
- How old are your workstations and servers? If they are older and reaching the end of their life and you plan to replace soon, you will be able to save money by moving to the cloud. You will still need devices to access the data but they won't need to be as powerful and you will have more flexibility in your choices. This can be a big cost savings!
- Do you need remote and/or mobile access? Many growing businesses need access from anywhere and anytime. You may have multiple locations or want to allow staff to work from home. Cloud computing will allow you and your staff to work securely from any location as long as you can connect to the internet.
- What are your current IT costs? You will be able to budget for your IT costs as server and system replacements will no longer be your concern. Monthly costs will be known and are many times capped. Cloud computing is now more advanced, secure, and cheaper than ever before. This type of computing is simply about doing things better and can have a positive impact on your profits, staff satisfaction, and productivity. If a hearty, available infrastructure with friendly monthly costs sounds good to you, it may be time to take a look at the cloud.
