What are the benefits of switching to the cloud?
Cloud computing is fast becoming the technology of choice for many businesses, of every shape and size, and across every sector. Replacing the traditional, in-house or on premise server approach, cloud or hosted systems are being recognised as a more cost-effective, highly secure and resilient alternative. Although some large businesses prefer to manage their own system infrastructures, there are significant operational benefits by making the switch at any level. For one thing, the need to focus more on core business priorities, and much less on IT issues, is not just highly desirable but increasingly important. Put simply, in these ever more competitive times, it’s a choice between having the responsibilities of running your own IT ‘generators’ or plugging into a secure, fully supported, ‘national grid’. Which, given that communications and network capabilities have become much faster and more reliable, strengthens the case for cloud computing.
