Cloud technology gives SMBs access to stronger security measures than they have the time, skills, experience, or resources to implement on their own.
Small or medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are embracing the cloud to improve the way they operate and to gain a competitive edge. It’s an innovative technology that will not break the budget of SMBs, while allowing them to even the playing field with enterprise-level organisations. This trend is only expected to increase going forward: according to a study by Microsoft, 78 percent of small businesses were expected to have adopted cloud computing by the end of 2020.
The cloud provides access to your data from anywhere, facilitating essential business functions, such as data storage, email, customer relationship management, disaster recovery, and file hosting/sharing. SMBs are turning to the cloud for these functions for a number of reasons, including:
The cloud will save SMBs money by eliminating the need for costly physical storage, IT maintenance, software licenses, and upgrade fees. These responsibilities fall upon your cloud vendor and are included in your monthly subscription fee.
Cloud technology gives SMBs access to stronger security measures than they have the time, skills, experience, or resources to implement on their own. Having your data automatically backed up and stored off-site provides the ability to restore your data in the event of a security breach or data disaster.
Your business might be small today, but with any luck, you will experience growth in the future. Cloud solutions are scalable, enabling you to easily and affordably accommodate additional employees, locations, etc.
Few businesses these days have their entire staff working exclusively from the same location and never away from their desks. With your workflow hosted in the cloud, your staff has the ability to work remotely without any limitations.
Is your small or medium-sized business riding the wave and taking advantage of cloud-hosted technology? If not, you are in the minority and risk being left behind.
