Cloud adoption has become an inevitable change for every business. Fast changes in technology and the growing complexities in traditional IT in order to accommodate the demands of technology are resulting in a need for more elasticity in the IT structure. Businesses can be ahead of the evolving needs through cloud-adoption to optimize productivity. Highlighted below are 6 of the most vital reasons to help you make cloud adoption easier.
1. Enhanced Security
Concerns with Data Security have traditionally inhibited cloud adoption. However, Cloud predictions for 2016 reveals that Security will soon move from being an inhibitor to an abettor in cloud adoption. As more and more cloud vendors equip themselves with physical and logical security resources, organizations will tend to feel increasingly safer with them. Moreover, well-established cloud vendors continue to build a strong track record with their expertise and multiple layers of resources for defence. This ensures that customers feel assured of a better security infrastructure than any they could have afforded in-house.
2. Better Collaboration
As globalisation help businesses evolve, work locations get increasingly dispersed. Customers therefore need their resources all across the globe to be able to collaborate with each other effectively. Cloud provides the perfect opportunity to ensure collaborative productivity. Cloud based frameworks help customers enjoy the benefits of collaboration in the form of innovative work models that enhance flexibility and effectiveness manifold.
3. Flexible Resource utilization
Cloud provides flexibility not only in work cultures but also in utilization of resources. As Cloud functions on a pay per use model, therefore, customers need only pay for the resources they require to use. Moreover, Cloud is also the best alternative for ensuring scalability on demand. For businesses that have a sporadic nature of growth cloud provides them with the flexibility to increase or decrease their resource utilisation without incurring a huge cost overhead.
4. Easy Integration
Customers will surely love the vast expanse of opportunity that Cloud provides through its easy integration facility. With the scope to connect with any end point, customers can not only enjoy unparalleled flexibility in their IT infrastructure but are also able to enhance that infrastructure by extending their legacy environment. Cloud Vendors are equipped with tools and technologies that minimize integration effort while ensuring maximum scalability.
5. Lower operational costs and quicker upgrades
Cloud is known primarily for its ability in helping to reduce operational costs for customers. As it provides multiple IT environments at no additional cost for purchase, maintenance or support, Cloud based frameworks help businesses function not only with reduced cost but also with enhanced efficiency. Moreover, upgrades are quicker and more frequently provided at no additional cost to the customer. The customer’s IT team not having to deal with mundane maintenance tasks can focus on developing functionality that delivers product efficiency and enhances their business value.
6. Facilitates Faster Migration
As Cloud ensures easy integration and enhanced flexibility, businesses may find it a convenient technology aid while enter into mergers. Ensuring the efficient and smooth transition of IT stacks was a lengthy and painstaking effort through traditional IT. However, Cloud simplifies it and makes the merger process more seamless.
