All you applications, data files, emails, and shared company data is accessible to you from any PC, Mac, or tablet with internet access.
Businesses everywhere are hearing about the benefits of Cloud computing, but can the change really save money? Each year, businesses incur costs associated with keeping data on premise. Cloud technology has leveled the playing field between businesses of all sizes, allowing even the smallest startup to compete with Goliath-sized competitors. But for established businesses, shifting operations to the cloud can seem like a daunting, costly measure. Once those businesses begin calculating the true cost savings that can be achieved through making the switch, however, many companies realize the delay actually cost them money.

The primary motivator for moving to the cloud is cost savings, according to a survey of 1,300 businesses in the U.K. and U.S. In the same survey, 56 percent of respondents reported that cloud services had helped them boost profits, while 60 percent stated they’d reduced IT staff time spent maintaining infrastructure. This gave these team members time to focus on other areas. With so many enterprises making the move, businesses are realizing they can no longer afford to ignore the benefits of cloud-based IT services.
Cloud technology usually provides the capability to connect from anywhere, using a variety of devices. This connectivity gives professionals the ability to access and share files while traveling, working from home, or commuting on public transportation. The productivity boost this can give a business stands to dramatically improve the services that business can provide its clients and customers, which can enhance a company’s bottom line.
The cost benefits of cloud services are slowly converting businesses of all sizes from on premise technology to cloud-based technology. By providing the equipment, software, and support needed to keep a business operational, cloud providers can empower businesses to remain competitive while saving money.
