Why Cloud makes business sense
Cloud Computing leverages the power of the internet to do things remotely by minimizing the usage of on-premise resources. It delivers computing resources ( E.g., processing power, storage capacity, software applications) over the internet. Similar to the way that utilities such as electricity or gas are delivered to homes and businesses, cloud computing frees up businesses from having to install technology on their premises.
Cloud enables your business:
- Access high-quality services and enterprise-class IT for less cost
- Save resources that would have been spent on implementing and managing on-premise infrastructure
- Support your mobile workforce by accessing data from anywhere
- Avoid over or under investing on computing resources- pay for only what you use
- Protect and secure your business network and data
- Reduce IT hardware costs and obsolescence
- Reduce upkeep and maintenance costs
- Solve IT skills limitations
