Traditional IT solutions are not suited to every business – Different businesses have different requirements and not everyone can afford to upgrade software and hardware on a regular basis or replace it when it becomes obsolete.
Scalability proves to be an issue for businesses with constantly changing employee requirements. Purchasing expensive software licenses when they are only due to be used for a short period of time and remain unused after the member of staff leaves is not cost-effective.
Data storage is an aspect of IT that every business – small or large – requires. Important documents and files are stored on-site, usually on dedicated hardware that needs to be maintained and backed-up regularly which may come at a cost.
Cloud technology however, can provide scalable solutions – such as subscription based software – that can be scaled as required and also has the added benefit of staying up-to-date without having to pay for new versions of software. Data is stored remotely and backed up seamlessly and, like software can be scaled, with capacity increased or decreased as required.
Increases productivity by allowing team members to collaborate remotely. There is no longer any need to copy documents between devices using removable media – documents stored in the cloud can be accessed instantly from any device with an internet connection. And with services such as Microsoft’s SharePoint and Google’s Docs which allow simultaneous collaboration across different devices and even operating systems, teams are no longer restricted on where and when they can work together.
