If you’re running a business that does a lot of computer-based work, you’re probably looking for ways to increase productivity and maximize your workflow. One of the best ways to do both of those things is to move to using cloud-based computing. In this blog, we’ll take a look at how using cloud apps can save time and money for your business.

Cloud Apps Are Cheaper

One of the main reasons that your business should shift to a cloud computing program is the bottom line: the cost. Cloud apps are cheaper in two ways because they require less time to use and cost less as well. The beautiful part of using cloud computing is that every user of your computer network can access every application anywhere. This is possible because the software lives on a controlled server and all users log in online to receive instant access. Because of the cloud software, there is no need to continuously buy physical copies of software. The financial answer? Cloud hosting plans are very affordable–your vendor will offer a variety of options that will allow you to maximize speed of use and monitor cost.

Cloud Apps Eliminate the Boundaries for Collaboration

Another significant reason for using cloud apps involves the ease of use. Many companies use cloud computing solutions because they allow employees to work remotely and to work together from anywhere. When your employees can find the best ways to work and have the flexibility to do so without walls, great things happen. Imagine how much stronger your team will be when everyone is working together–and faster!

Cloud Apps Are More Secure

The third reason that your business should consider using cloud apps is the security of your data. The risk of data misuse or loss has never been higher. When you trust your data to a cloud hosting company, they assume all the risk. As a result, they will take care of making sure that all of your data is secure. They will work hard to keep your network up to date and completely secure–additionally, their support teams will do whatever they need to do to keep your business running smoothly!

What Are Cloud Apps and How Can They Help?

A cloud application is a software program that is located and deployed from the cloud rather than simply downloaded to a personal computer. Cloud apps usually utilize third-party servers to house the software and the data used by local users. Using cloud apps for your business can do a lot to help increase efficiency and save money. Here are some of the ways that using cloud apps can help your organization.

Simplified Usage

Cloud-based apps are designed to be managed in a simple, effective, overarching way. Cloud apps can be designed to utilize existing company needs, policies, and principles to guide how users gain and maintain their access to the apps.

Reliability

Cloud apps are deployed remotely to reduce lag time for your local IT staff. Apps are regularly updated, tested, and usually have vendor-provided support for issues that may arise with your employees.

Better Data Security

Another benefit of using cloud apps is the increased levels of data security provided by the vendor. Data stored on cloud-based apps is regularly backed up to prevent catastrophic data loss. Anything stored on cloud apps by employees can be accessed by authorized IT staff to ensure adherence to company data security policies.

Reduced Software Costs

When considering why to shift away from traditional software packages to cloud-based apps, money can be a big factor. Cloud applications provide all the same bells and whistles of traditional software but with significant savings. Data centers that store the apps and their data can be run for much less capital–resulting in cheaper pricing for your business!

Enhanced Collaboration

One additional benefit of using cloud apps for your business is that employees can work together more often, even outside of the office, to meet the needs of your customers. Having that flexibility in ways that work better for each employee leads to better work for the organization.

Reduced Carbon Footprint

One outside consideration for using cloud apps is the benefit that comes from a reduced carbon footprint. Cloud apps provide all the benefits of a traditional application without the need to drive to the office to install, troubleshoot, or use software. Anything that allows a company to save the environment is a win-win. When you’re ready to change the way that you view cloud apps, contact us.

Why & How Businesses are Using Cloud Computing for Internal & Consumer Mobile Apps

Cloud computing concept design

Not every company wants its entire business in the Cloud, but there is one area that is responsible for much of the growth in Cloud Computing: mobile apps. Businesses are choosing Cloud hosting for mobile apps because it makes possible an integrated security and management suite for all different kinds of cell phones and tablets. Rather than being native to individual devices, these apps exist in the Cloud (where all the processing and storage occurs), with mobile devices used simply as access points, offering reliability at a lower cost.

Bill Claybrook of SearchCloudApplications.com argues for companies implementing Bring Your Own Device (aka BYOD, the IT policy that allows personal cell phone use for work purposes), it’s especially important. BYOD will become more of an issue as it becomes commonplace to use mobile devices when accessing critical aspects of a companies system.

The Growing Cloud

Numerous industries have already realized the benefits provided by Cloud Computing. That’s why tons of companies have already started adopting and integrating the technology into their businesses. While most of know the various uses for Cloud Computing, you may find some below you haven’t thought of yet.

Data Storage

Cloud Storage

Odd as it may sound, it’s still common for business to maintain their electronic data on in-house servers. Cloud Computing allows businesses to store their data remotely in a secure datacenter located the world away. While some companies choose to house their servers in their kitchen (I recently visited a company whose sandwiches were made next to their internal email server) Cloud Computing unshackles companies from their internal servers – in the process freeing up physical space and freeing up OPEX and CAPEX expenditures.

Cloud Computing solutions create an environment where employees can work together by having immediate access to the same information regardless of their location. Not only does Cloud storage save your business money on expensive software (CAPEX), it also saves space on the hard drive of each employee’s computer. Why would anyone outsource their electronic data storage? It’s simple, not only are the benefits of remote data storage plentiful, it’s extremely affordable, too.

As previously mentioned, the Cloud allows companies to take their internal servers off their books. This means companies no longer have to shell out upwards of $50,000 every few years to maintain and replace their internal server housing their email and phone needs. As automatic software updates save companies on CAPEX, no server equipment maintenance/replacement saves companies tons of dough on OPEX.
