The market for cloud computing and cloud solutions is continuing to grow at a nearly-unprecedented rate. Since the U.S. government first pursued cloud technology in 2009 with the Cloud First Policy, businesses and companies across the country have spent more than $13 billion on cloud technology.
So if your business hasn’t yet switched over to cloud computing, now may be the best time to do so.
Want to know more about why more and more businesses are pursuing cloud computing solutions? Take a look at this list of the three biggest benefits of switching to the cloud:
Cut costs for technology
Most of today’s cloud service providers — especially Google, Amazon and Microsoft’s cloud systems — charge highly-affordable rates to rent out cloud storage on their servers. In addition, there are no costly licensing or software fees when your information is stored in the cloud, and you won’t have to invest in expensive in-house hardware, either.
Improve worker efficiency
With cloud computing technology, the amount of worker output increases significantly, meaning more gets done in less time. This will drastically reduce cost per project and make everyday operations less expensive — giving you more money to grow your business. In addition, the information stored on the cloud can be accessed from anywhere in the world, meaning workers have more opportunities to telecommute and work from remote locations.
Streamline nearly every process
Ultimately, cloud computing solutions are designed to make businesses run smoother and more efficiently. This technology opens up increased opportunities for telecommuting, flexibility and makes updating your business’ systems easier than ever. Countless businesses have already seen why the cloud is the best serving option for them — why not join them?
