Take your tech environment to Cloud 9
Sounding Off on the Cloud Shift
Ed Anderson research vice president at Gartner, Inc., one of the world’s premier information technology research and advisory companies, has this to say about the cloud shift: “Cloud-first strategies are the foundation for staying relevant in a fast-paced world. The market for cloud services has grown to such an extent that it is now a notable percentage of total IT spending, helping to create a new generation of start-ups and ‘born in the cloud’ providers.”
Allied Market Research underscores a main driver of businesses to cloud computing when it proclaims that, “The key driver for the market is that it provides cost benefits when it is compared to conventional physical storage as it is estimated that cloud services would save 35% of the annual operations cost.” Cutting costs and upping productivity are indeed the main factors interesting companies in cloud services, but what other key benefits are there?
Main Benefits of Cloud Migration
There is a potent plethora of benefits of the cloud and cloud migration for companies of all shapes and sizes, including:
- Having multi-industry-wide application
- Software as a Service and Storage as a Service (SaaS)
- Greater security, less hands-on management
- Public and private-sector prospects
- Subscription-based, capital-expenditure-free models
- Increased project collaboration and conferencing potential
- Disaster recovery and business continuity flexibility
- Auto-updating software
- Greater telecommuting possibilities
- Airtight document control parameters, and much more.
Analyzing Cloud Benefits
Spending within IT infrastructures will be significant in 2016, with a 15.5% increase in spending this year which will top $37 billion (Source: International Data Corporation). According to Gartner, Inc., the aggregate amount of cloud shift in 2016 is expected to top $100 million globally. These financial projections demonstrate just how lucrative cloud services aim to be. Getting on board the cloud bandwagon shapes up to be a positive for any SMB, LLC, or large corporation. Especially for the large corporations, government organizations, healthcare and financial sectors. Though, any sole proprietor or entrepreneur would do well to level-up to the cloud as well.
