How Cloud Computing Helps Increase Productivity
With 85% of organizations worldwide using multi-cloud strategies, here are the top 10 ways that companies use the cloud to enhance the productivity of their business.
The arrival of cloud computing has completely changed the way business operates. Within the umbrella term ‘cloud-computing’ you will find:
- PAAS (Platform as a Service)
- IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service)
- SaaS (Software/Applications as a Service)
The use of cloud computing is on the rise and are used by companies in multiple ways:
Improving Collaboration — teams in geographically distant locations can access documents and data at any time meaning teams work more effectively.
Secure Data — No more issues with lost laptops, USB keys or other storage devices. All the data is stored in the cloud and can be retrieved easily without worrying about local storage.
Cost Reduction — hardware purchasing costs are significantly reduced and the variety of subscription or pay-as-you-go choices make it easy to stay within budgetary constraints. Set up and management is easy meaning less expense hiring teams to get the service up and running.
Remote Operations — employees can access data from anywhere where they can connect to the internet. Many of the services can now be accessed from a phone or tablet so there is no need to rely on one single device to access the system.
Access to the Best Technologies — The state-of-the-art technologies used to be the province of large corporations but now even the smallest company can access the very best giving them a good competitive edge.
Free and Timely Upgrades — cloud services take away any of the concerns regarding updates and security. This is all done for free on off-premise servers saving time, money and worry.
Easy Data Recovery— cloud storage eliminates the risk of data loss especially for smaller companies who cannot afford the latest recovery systems.
Scalability — as companies grow, sometimes rapidly, using cloud computing means they can scale up or down easily and quickly. Operational agility is one of the main advantages of cloud services.
Control Over Data — it was not unusual for files to be transferred several times before cloud computing. Now files can be accessed by employees and edited from anywhere reducing the risk of errors occurring.
Reduced Carbon Footprint— servers only use the energy required by the company, thus lowering energy needs and reducing the organization’s overall carbon footprint.
