Change can be a very scary thing and when it comes to your data, your fears may be stopping you from transitioning your networks to the best solution. However, you cannot let fear stop you from taking advantage of the wonderful features and solutions of the modern world. Today we’re going to be talking about the true benefits of having your small business in the cloud, on local servers, or a hybrid solution where both are utilized. Let’s take a look.
Technology solutions follow the same business logic as other decisions in your business.
If you’re not an IT company, then IT isn’t your core competency. You are a doctor. You are a business professional. You are a restauranteur. There is a lot of talk today that the cloud is always cheaper and more secure. Unfortunately, our industry is misleading a lot of people. While the cloud solution is normally cheaper the first year it’s almost always more expensive if you look at the costs over a five-year period, which is a better comparison with an on-premise solution. However, there are benefits for paying more and putting your data into a cloud solution.
The future is flexible.
Flexibility is becoming more and more important as time goes on. Flexibility only works if the data is accessible all the time. Putting your data into the cloud allows your data to be accessible even if the Internet connection or electrical power at your office goes out. Employees want to be able to work from home or on the go. Employees need to be able to collaborate on a national and international level at times. All this to say that sometimes you need to have systems that allow for flexibility. The Cloud can be accessed from anywhere at any time as long as you have an internet connection. When you switch to the Cloud, you can give your team the tools they need to get their jobs done comfortably and flexibly.
