Advantages of Cloud-Based Services


Has your organization considered the advantages that Cloud-based services could provide?

What we’ve learned is that when you don’t know what measurable factors to compare, it can be a challenging decision. And, with the explosion of Cloud computing maturation, businesses are seeking ways to help clients reduce costs, increase supportability and efficiency, and create a platform for innovation and adaptability.

Before making any Cloud decisions, it’s important that you have an understanding of what Cloud computing is. Cloud computing is an offsite computer resource or group of resources that are easily accessed, via the internet, in an on-demand capacity. Simply put, it provides you with more access and security for your valuable data. 

HP notes that more than 92% of companies are using services that are connected to or run in the Cloud, making it the future of business. Many of your competitors are either considering, or already using, the Cloud to deliver more value to their customers. Before you make any Cloud decisions, make sure you understand the benefits of these services.

Here are Datasmith’s top five advantages of Cloud-based services:

  • Data Security: Our team is well-versed in security details like authentication, encryption, and permissions.
  • Cost Reduction: Cloud solutions cover the high cost of storing and hosting data, allowing you to save on what is otherwise a significant and ongoing investment. It’s time to get rid of your hardware!
  • Increased Collaboration: The Cloud was created with collaboration in mind, allowing for real-time connections from anywhere and at any time. It provides the support needed for the new hybrid work environment.
  • Disaster Recovery: When you use the Cloud, there’s always a plan in place with the ability to restore your files.
  • Mobility: Cloud-based mobile solutions have made it easier to build, test, and better integrate your applications.

Cloud computing is everywhere, with most individuals not even realizing that they use it in their everyday lives. Streaming Netflix? You’re using Cloud computing. Checking your bank balance on your phone? Cloud computing. Facebook and Instagram? Apps that rely on Cloud computing! It’s everywhere you turn in todays world.

At the end of the day, businesses have more flexibility with Cloud computing. That flexibility allows for a real advantage over competitors by improving your overall operational efficiency. According to MIT, organizations that are adapting to the digital world are 26% more profitable than their industry peers. We believe that enhanced security, consistent availability of information on multiple systems, and lower overall costs are pretty important parts of that.
