By now, you have probably heard of cloud computing and how it is changing the way businesses handle their data. Cloud computing allows businesses to remove the burden of data processing and data storage away from workplace computers and local hard drives and transition it to cloud servers.
Cloud computing has changed the way data is stored, managed and accessed. It has many benefits to businesses of all sizes. At Express Computers, we help businesses of all sizes from Langley to Vancouver improve their data capabilities with cloud computing. Here are 5 ways your business can benefit from cloud computing:
1 – Cost-savings
Handling all of your business’s data internally can be expensive, especially when looking at the cost of an internal IT department. Most small to medium businesses cannot afford to staff their own IT department and properly manage all of their data in-house. Cloud computing allows businesses to outsource all of their data storage and management at a fraction of the cost.
2 – Security
Your businesses data is one of its most valuable assets. Unless you have a dedicated IT department tasked with its security, your data could be at risk. Although cloud computing is not yet bulletproof, it is far more secure than housing your business’s data internally.
3 – Operational Efficiency
Businesses that outsource their data with cloud computing have more time to focus their efforts towards the business’s core competencies. If data computing is not one of your business’s core strengths, it should be outsourced.
4 – Scalability
Scaling your business’s data systems with cloud computing is simple and affordable. In the past, businesses used to have to spend lots of money expanding their IT department and data systems when growing. Cloud computing has made this all much easier. Data storage and data management can easily be expanded when needed. Cloud computing allows your business’s data systems to grow with your business.
5 – Simplicity
Some businesses are hesitant to transition into cloud computing because they perceive it to be challenging and complicated. This is a myth. You do not have to be a technology expert to make cloud computing work for your business. Managed IT companies like Express Computers make cloud computing simple with stress-free integration and easy-to-use applications.
