As cloud computing becomes more commonplace, small and mid-sized businesses, all face the same questions about the advantages of moving to the cloud, and when is the right time to do it?
Remote and mobile access
If your workforce is becoming more mobile and they’re needing to access files between different locations and offices or catching up on work after hours, cloud computing allows staff to work securely and efficiently from any location with internet access.
Age of servers and workstations
If your business is facing new costs because your workstations or servers are needing replacement, you’ll likely to be able to minimise the expense by moving to the cloud. You may even be able to do away with certain upgrades completely.
With cloud computing, server and system replacements are no longer your concern. You’ll be able to budget for IT costs in advance as monthly costs are known and are usually capped based on what your businesses uses.
Current IT support
If your business is considering, or is already outsourcing the management of your IT network, you’re probably perfectly suited to the move. Network maintenance and monitoring becomes a non-issue, as it handled 24/7 as part of your cloud service.
Moving to the Cloud
The normal transition to cloud services begins with moving your backup and data services. Once completed, email and Microsoft Office can be migrated to the cloud-based Microsoft Office 365 service.
This managed approach ensures your IT infrastructure improves with every step and there is minimal or no disruption to your business.
