If your company is still operating outside of the cloud, well... You absolutely must read this text.
According to forecasts by the
Gartner Institute, more than 85 per cent of companies will adopt a cloud-centric strategy by 2025. As many as 95 per cent of new digital workloads will be deployed on cloud platforms. This means that companies that choose not to use the cloud will be seen as those that are digitally excluded.
Why is migration to the cloud the main direction of companies’ current technology strategy, regardless of their size?
The cloud does not disappoint
Companies praise cloud computing primarily because of its operational stability, efficiency and flexibility. There is no room for overload or downtime in cloud computing – it is a solution that is always available.
It also has the great advantage of being scalable and adaptable to the current needs of the company. As the organisation grows and the amount of data increases, we can upgrade the range of services provided by using the cloud. And this can be done “out of the box.” Ongoing optimisation also works the other way round if we are currently looking to reduce our package and cut some costs.
The cloud generates savings
Storing all company data and business systems in the cloud also entails a number of savings. Migrating to the cloud means that we can forget about purchasing and maintaining the entire infrastructure, servers, hardware and software. As a result, we reduce expenses associated with, for example, huge (especially now!) electricity bills.
Speaking of electricity, we cannot forget the environmental aspect of the cloud. By moving away with the physical IT infrastructure, we reduce carbon dioxide emissions and the aforementioned electricity consumption. By doing so, we support the universally desirable policy of sustainable business development.
Investment in the cloud is also associated with a reduction in the number of employees – needed to operate the infrastructure. Comprehensive administration of the cloud infrastructure lies with its provider.
The cloud guarantees security
Security is one of the key advantages of operating a company in cloud computing. Cloud service providers are racing each other to implement solutions related to protecting their customers’ data as efficiently as possible. At a time when cyber attacks are a huge challenge and threat, the cloud gives us much better security against hacking activities.
By operating in the cloud, we are guaranteed the protection against data loss through ongoing back-up. The data centre itself is always in a carefully chosen, secure location, away from any potential hazards. Therefore, we can forget about the risk of fire or flooding.
