Cloud Transition Strategy
If you’ve owned and operated a small business for severalyears, you undoubtedly already know that the digital revolution has changed the entire face how the world does business. You probably use digital advertising to increase awareness of your business and to grow your customer base, and if you’re smart, you’ve used social media to your advantage to attract, engage, and retain customers. However, you may have not yet migrated to the cloud, and perhaps you don’t see any good reason to do so in the future. This is not an uncommon stance — many of those in your position believe that implementing a cloud transition strategy may be too complex for them and is better left to the large corporations. However, cloud computing has a lot to offer businesses of any size.
Following are just three of the many reasons why small businesses should consider going to the cloud.
You’ll Be Able to Access Data from Anywhere
If you’re like many small business owners, you often encounter situations that need your attention when you’ve gone home for the day or are otherwise away from your worksite. Cloud computing lets you access the necessary data to deal with any issues that arise without having to go back to your office to use the computer.
You’ll Enjoy Reduced Costs
You’ll also enjoy reduced costs due to not having to purchase and maintain the equipment necessary to provide your own onsite storage solutions. As a bonus, you’ll save money on payroll costs by not having to have a full-time IT team on staff. Instead, you’ll have access to the expertise of those employed by your cloud provider.
You’ll Enjoy Added Security
If someone breaks into your business and steals your computers, they’re essentially stealing all the data that those devices contain. With cloud computing, you’ll still be able to access the data and other important information even if your computers are never recovered. You’ll also be able to retain access to your information in the event your area is stricken by a natural disaster such as a fire, hurricane, flood, or earthquake and your computers become destroyed or damaged as a result. Many small businesses struggle to regain their footing in the aftermath of natural disasters, and cloud storage will mean that there will be one less major consideration for you to worry about.
