The Cloud has become an IT buzz-word that many companies are either implementing into their everyday working life or disregarding it, because they don’t understand what it means for their business.

Let’s start from the beginning,

What is the Cloud?

It’s a technology that allows us to work in the same place, on any device, in any location and in a highly secure environment.

How will the Cloud benefit my business?

Over the next 5 years, the need for a local IT department will be dramatically reduced.  The days of capex expenditure is gone, no more worrying about where the money will come from to buy that expensive server and of course the, ever-increasing energy bills will become something from the past.

Firstly, the Cloud is opex expenditure, it is a pay as you technology which means you can budget your IT costs into a monthly manageable, predictable, scalable sum.  It’s no wonder for those reasons, it has attracted so much attention from the Technology world.

Working with the Cloud allows you to:

  • Take your office anywhere in the world with an internet connection
  • Access all your data, email and work applications in one place
  • Secure and backup of not just your data but your entire server.

We understand it’s a lot to take in and it’s different, not many like change.  However, this change is for the good and will allow our businesses to develop, keep up with technology at an affordable pace.
