Many people ask, “Why move to the Cloud?”. Cloud computing is computing based on the internet. In the past, people would run applications or programs from software downloaded on a physical computer or server in their building. Cloud services generally operate on a subscription model, where your cost is based on usage over time, from month to month, allow you to manage your budget and not over-invest in infrastructure or resources. Cloud computing allows people access to the same kinds of applications through the internet. These environments are generally scalable, reliable and highly available.
It is a way to access technology via the Internet, which can lead to cost savings and other conveniences for your business such as automatic updates, accessibility away from the office, at home and while traveling. It can also increase collaboration with co-workers.
According to Microsoft, the below are five benefits of why you should move to cloud:
1. Cloud-based applications are here to stay
The cloud market is expected to pass $500 billion by 2020 and 72% of business had at least one application in the cloud in 2015 which is a 15% increase from 2012.
2. Security comes standard:
As cloud technology improves, security fears lessen. In a survey of enterprise IT managers, security is no longer ranked as the #1 concern when it comes to cloud computing.
3. Move at your own pace:
Cloud migration does not need to happen all at once, and it is recommended to migrate to the cloud over time with a hybrid approach—the combination of an on-premises, private cloud and third-party, public cloud services.
4. Using cloud doesn’t mean using new tools:
Moving to a cloud-based solution doesn’t have to mean retraining employees. Many solutions allow you to use the same applications your employees are used to, with access to files anywhere online.
5. The sky is the limit
Cloud adopters see various benefits from their technology, although businesses’ top cited benefits include the following:
- Faster access to infrastructure
- Greater scalability
- Increased availability
