Why cloud uptake is inevitable
Although the debate of “Cloud vs On-premises” may continue, the cloud will not fade away since many small companies, large businesses and government bodies are already moving workload and processes over to the cloud.
The Millennials generation has grown up as users of portable devices are used to to accessing information instantly and now expect this in the workplace, with workflows and processes on which to make judgements and decisions.
If you’re just not on board or convinced about the cloud being here to stay, here are a few reasons why we think it is.
A mobile workforce
As companies continue to seek value for money, ‘hot desking’ has become more popular. Office space is costly to build or hire, so businesses are increasingly looking at ways to economise on this expense.
Staff who work from home or who are out on the road have become the norm, and they need and demand access to company resources from wherever they are and at all hours; the cloud makes resources accessible, affordable and easy to use via portable devices from any location with an internet connection.
If you don’t, your competition will
Early adopters of the cloud know how easy and quick it is to scale up their IT requirements as the business grows, thus enabling them to get new products to market quicker. They don’t just avoid capital costs but also delays in decision-making when it comes to replacing legacy systems to increase productivity.
To get ahead of the competition, sales staff need instant access to information when meeting potential clients, especially when bidding for contracts. Likewise managers need access to analytics and statistical information in order to help make better decisions.
It is increasingly required by governing bodies
Government departments, agencies and public bodies are moving processes to the Cloud and requiring businesses to submit data and information via online portals. Industries regulated by government bodies could very soon be obligated to accommodate these platforms.
