Let’s imagine for a moment that in your job, you need to keep 10 separate and equally important plates spinning at once, every single day. While you know that you’re great at spinning plates 1 to 3, you notice that as you drag on from 4 to 10 the plates begin to wobble. Though you’ve never actually allowed a plate to smash on the ground, the thought of picking up the pieces makes you anxious.
Imagine now that you have the ability to delegate some of your plate spinning to partners who are even better equipped than you are. In handing the task over, you not only relieve yourself of the worry of dropping a plate, but you also ensure that the job gets done in a more effective manner than before. Would you offload a few plates if you could?
There’s a reason why so many organizations have made the transition to the cloud. Cost savings, reduced infrastructure responsibility, and enhanced security features are making cloud computing the rule, rather than the exception these days. Let’s take a look at the top 5 reasons the team at CrucialLogics recommends you move your organization to the cloud.
1) Remain competitive
The cloud-based market is expected to surpass $500 Billion by 2020. And with over 72% of organizations reporting having at least one application in the cloud, we can see that the majority of companies have already made the leap. If you knew that your competitors had a distinct advantage over you, in an area that you could readily alter to meet or exceed their offering, would you do it? Because transitioning to the cloud presents you with exactly that opportunity.
2) Prioritize security
In moving to an enterprise-level cloud, you gain a security team with global knowledge and decades of expertise. You gain a security force that never sleeps, constantly monitoring for threats and evaluating risk.
The public cloud allows you to seamlessly scale and ensure that your data remains secure. The security team monitors millions of threats across the world, and uses that intelligence to protect your organization. And with fewer hands touching your security infrastructure in-house, you reduce the risk of mistakes and insider threats.
3) Take your time
Today’s cloud functionality enables organizations to move at their own pace. It’s not necessary to undergo a massive migration all at once. Instead, your company can move incrementally over as you see fit. At CrucialLogics, we champion a hybrid approach, combining an on-premises, private cloud and a third party public cloud for the initial stages. This approach allows the users to gain familiarity with any new interfaces, while minimizing the amount of time and energy necessary to complete the migration at any one given time.
4) Familiar apps
Switching to the cloud doesn’t mean that you’ll need to retrain all your employees. Rest assured that the same applications your team is using right now, are also available on the cloud. This significantly decreases human resources element in a migration.
5) Big benefits
Cloud solutions come with a great number of benefits, including:
- Lower cost
- Better disaster recovery
- Enhanced collaboration
- Increased mobility
