Cloud services have existed for decades, and have continued to grow in capability and popularity. While many believe they will shape the market of the future, there is proof that that future is already here.
As business projects become increasingly complex and data security becomes harder and of more concern, the Cloud offers businesses a better way to manage and perform – without the cost and burden of increased IT infrastructure.
Cloud strategies are becoming an integral part of just about every industry, with approximately one-third of all global IT spending currently going to cloud and hosting services.
As marketplaces become more flooded, businesses need to be able to move quickly and adapt to stay competitive. But if projects require infrastructure that comes with big upfront costs and time delays to get off the ground, businesses lose agility – and their competitive edge.
Even once these systems are in place, how easily can they adapt to changing needs? Peaks in usage are common, so if systems aren’t flexible enough to ride out changes in usage, hardware and software are sitting idle, damaging ROI while failing to add value.
Cloud computing allows you to be able to keep up and adapt to changing markets and trends, introducing agility and flexibility into your IT.
By hosting applications, software, data and more over the cloud on a pay-as-you-go system, you gain immediate access to the services you need, and only pay for what you use.
You also have specialists maintaining the systems, data and security – removing burdens from internal IT staff.
