1. Access to Latest Technology
The problem: software updates are expensive and disruptive
Why migrate to the cloud: Cloud service providers such as Microsoft and Google, integrate the latest technology in various services like networking and applications. They constantly upgrade resources with the most innovative features that boost performance and maximize efficiency. Your company can have instant access to enterprise-class technology and the latest updates of software. This minimizes the chaos of conflicting file formats, titles and content. What’s more, all your company’s documents and files are saved centrally on the cloud, where, whoever has been granted access, can work on it. This improves productivity as nobody needs to be delayed by files that are to big to be emailed, or attachments not being attached to emails.
The problem: unable to work when you need to
Why migrate to the cloud: Just as the PC changed the way people worked, you are part of a revolution that sees the brilliant convergence of the cloud and the billions of mobile devices in use today. Your physical location no longer matters.
Today, your staff must have access to the company’s network remotely. You want to work from home before heading to a client meeting, the managing partner wants to work while he’s on vacation, your sales rep can finish the quotes she began working on yesterday while sick in bed today; work is no longer an 8 to 5 “must be at the office” gig. You and your employees need to work wherever you are, and on any device you have with you. If your company is making use a public cloud solution, you’ll experience 99.99% uptime (and thus access), through the data center’s Internet bandwidth and reliability.
3. Cost Control
The problem: you need new server hardware and software
Why migrate to the cloud: The cloud makes financial sense for you. If you’re using a public cloud solution, you don’t have to invest in hardware (server) and software (server and user) which decreases your capital expenditure significantly. The bulk of your IT spend will move away from CAPEX to a monthly operating cost. And there’s no longer a need to factor in depreciation of the equipment.
4. IT Maintenance
The problem: expensive IT maintenance
Why migrate to the cloud: It costs money to maintain technology. And it can be an unpredictable cost. The parts of your infrastructure that is cloud based, won’t need to be managed and maintained by IT engineers you contract in or people you employ for this purpose. With the cloud, the management and maintenance is no longer your responsibility as it is all handled by the 3rd party that hosts your infrastructure.
