Key Benefits of Migrating to the Cloud

Apr 1, 2020 | Industry

With more and more of the workforce pivoting to remote work – especially since the outbreak of the coronavirus – there is a greater need for cloud-based services

While moving to the cloud may seem complex, the right partner ensures it’s not. There’s also a lot of benefits of moving to the cloud in terms of cost savings, agility, workforce flexibility, and security. 

Beginning the journey to the cloud allows your workforce to work securely from any place. Apart from security, moving to the cloud includes automatic backups, a scalable solution, and a reliable place to keep your data. Plus – a low cost in terms of upfront investments. 

Key benefits of the cloud include: 

Workforce Security
Considering the circumstances, being able to remotely manage a workforce securely is a key benefit of migrating to the cloud. With the ability to provide additional levels of security, including access control on mobile devices and identity management, the cloud enables you to seamlessly secure your information. 

Continuous Delivery
Hosting your data on the cloud not only ensures the data is frequently backed up, but also ensures high availability, security, and access to data by your teams at any given time, making collaboration easier. This ensures that although your workforce may be working from anywhere, your data always remains safe.

Disaster Recovery 
You never know when a disaster will strike, so keeping your data secure is a must. Storing your data in the cloud guarantees that data is always available and provides quick data recovery for all kinds of emergency scenarios, from natural disasters to power outages.

Having your important data stored in the cloud means your team is able to get faster updates without downtime.  Plus, the cloud provides the agility to scale up to meet storage and bandwidth capacity as needed.

Time and Money Savings
Cloud integration increases the operational efficiencies, decreases the amount spent on technical workers and usually delivers savings on server and infrastructure capacity.
