IT sector has undergone remarkable changes over a period of time, and now there's no turning back. Staying attached to outmoded systems because of qualms or trepidations about cloud technology will only leave your organization in the dust while your competitors will garner the benefits of cloud solutions.
Here, would like to say in word of one syllable that cloud solutions offer numerous benefits to businesses of all shapes and sizes. It not only perks up your organizational efficiency to a great extent, but also positively empowers the bottom lines of your business. Apart from this, other promising facets of cloud computing includes improved throughput, marketplace innovation and a dramatic attenuation in the intricacy involved in the management and administration of an "in-house" IT infrastructure.
With a highly sophisticated cloud computing strategy, organizations can easily embrace the powerful enterprise application that annihilates their existing corporate systems. This radical approach to streamline your business operations and IT resources requires integration, development and maintenance of software and network applications, which furthermore adds flexibility to the business workflow and makes it capable enough to mold themselves to upcoming trends in digital market and ultimately makes their business more competitive.
Despite of all the above mentioned benefits, still there are companies which are reluctant in shifting gears to the cloud. And believe us, we know why, and we can understand why do they are apprehensive about embracing the new technology. Through this article we would like to explain why you're worrying about the wrong things.
- Privacy Concerns:Not fully able to discern how cloud computing solutions work, which means that there is a common misconception i.e. storing data on to cloud is someway insecure, particularly given the rumors on internet privacy that have whitewashed the media in the past few months. People usually worry about the fact that their critical data must be restored on some kind of public resource, open and easily accessible to every hacker or mischief-maker. Here, we would say this isn't the case at all. Google or any other cloud provider that you opt to go ahead with, doesn't at all retain or possess your data, and they do not have access to it - only you do. Plus, the security provisions that these cloud service providers put into use so as to keep your data completely secure and safe, are pretty much unparalleled.
-Additional cost concerns: Companies often have a wrong impression about the amount of data a physical server room uses. In the traditional model, you have a server room located in your headquarters where the entire data is stored. From here, all your mission-critical data is channeled through e-mail and web browsing, etc. Transferring your data onto the cloud will connect all the segments of your business directly to the cloud. When you will be fetching data directly from the cloud - instead the entire data will be pushed to your device by the server - you can have access to the data or piece of information that you actually want to use. And, in case you require additional capacity, it is simple enough to upscale, without incurring any additional cost on the infrastructure.
The bottom line is: Businesses do evolve with time; since it is inevitable for the survival in a fiercely competitive market. Don't draw to a stand and watch your competitors surpass you simply because they've welcomed the new technology with open arms, which has empowered their businesses outclass yours.
