If your business is still holding out on migrating to the cloud, MOBIZ is here to clarify the reasons why the cloud is a great move for your business.
Do You Still Use Onsite Servers in an Internally Managed Data Center?
For years, internal data centers were the proven, traditional way of handling data storage, but with modern technology, it is time to alter that way of thinking. Data isn’t a tangible asset, but it can be stolen or lost—just because it isn’t under the same roof as the rest of your business doesn’t mean it isn’t secure. In fact, this blog will argue that cloud computing is indeed safer than keeping all your data all in one place under lock and key. When planned correctly, cloud migrations can be a seamless way to modernize how you store and access critical data. Here are some compelling reasons why a move to the cloud can be beneficial for your entire organization.
Data Migration Aligns With Business Strategy
Technology is supposed to work with your business, never against it. Too often businesses wait until their technology starts to lag and become a problem before they do anything about it. Cloud migration is the beginning of a strategy that is designed to modernize your technology, keep it relevant, and make sure that when your business grows, you have the tools your business needs to sustain that growth.
Cloud Computing Allows You to Improve
Do you need to improve your customer service? Is your product delivery spotty? Technology is the key to improving any aspect of your business. When you need to expand your mobile capacity, streamline your processes, or use the latest applications for a specific part of your business, cloud computing allows you to do all of this cost effectively and efficiently.
Sensitive Data Is Handled With Even More Care
Through encryption technology, sensitive data can be stored offsite. In fact, this technology can make offsite data storage even more secure than if it were housed in an on-premises system. Different industry regulations may need to be followed for specific data.
Scalable Cloud Resources Mean Lower Costs
The old method of data storage required purchasing servers and timing the purchase so that the new technology is available exactly when it is needed. The issue with this method is the timing was never right, and businesses either had too much capacity that needed to be maintained, or too little capacity, which impaired day-to-day operations. Cloud computing provides that “sweet spot” that lies between cost and functionality all the time. You only pay for what you use, which means you can scale up or back whenever you need to without any penalty and no fuss.
