Reasons why you should move to the cloud

Working from home has changed the way we conduct business. We’ve ditched the old ways and started embracing the new. We no longer are afraid of video calls and are used to working in pyjama bottoms with smart shirts (a whole new meaning to smart casual!) So why do you still have a bulky server sitting in your office, taking up space. Moving your business to the cloud is efficient, proactive and cost-effective.

We asked our Managing Director Stuart Winterburn his thoughts –
“Everyone in our organisation can open their laptop, securely connect to the internet and start work – wherever they are.

The experience and ability to use systems is the same regardless of whether they are sitting in one of our offices, at home, or wherever circumstances need them to be.
Having an agile and flexible workforce provides a large part of the risk involved in uncertain times and allows our team to work smarter and not be hindered by their ability or inability to travel.

I firmly believe that this is both desirable for most businesses and achievable for most businesses without breaking the bank, indeed the reality of this can be that technology costs are significantly more scalable and transparent.

Move your infrastructure to the cloud and have the confidence that your business can operate under any conditions.”
Here are just a few of the key benefits you’ll enjoy by migrating to the Cloud –
Scale easily

Scalability means that you can easily upscale your IT requirements as required, allowing you to increase or decrease resources in line with business requirements.

Cut costs

Moving to the Cloud can help you reduce operational costs while improving IT processes. The average savings from cloud migration come to around 15% on all IT spending. You also avoid upfront costs by only paying for the capacity you use, as well as saving on ongoing maintenance and support costs.

Increase security

Many Cloud providers handle security via inbuilt security capabilities and automatic processes, meaning that resilience becomes more efficient and easier to maintain. With data is in the Cloud, it can be accessed no matter what happens to your physical hardware.

Collaborate remotely

Cloud computing allows businesses to provide collaboration and communication tools, software, applications and access to documents and databases from anywhere, making it easier for employees to work and collaborate remotely.

Integrate with other services

Many Cloud services often feature integrations with other services, meaning that connecting systems together is seamless and much more cost-effective.
