Your employees love cloud computing. It lets them work anywhere, any time, on any device. For many people, that kind of flexibility in their work schedule is a big boost to their quality of life.
There are plenty of reasons for you to love cloud computing, too. Employee satisfaction leads to employee loyalty, which leads to employee productivity. You may even be able to move some employees to telecommuting positions, which will save your business money on office space and utilities.
If cloud computing is a smart decision, the tricky part is deciding which cloud. If you’re considering a move to the cloud, a third-party provider is a must.
Maybe you’re worried that a transition to cloud computing will disrupt your work environment. Maybe you’re worried that having important company information living in the online ether, instead of being stored in individual computers or in on-premise storage, will create security issues.
The good news is that both of these concerns can be completely alleviated by using a third-party cloud computing provider, rather than setting up an in-house cloud server.
A third-party provider will gradually move your company information over to its own servers without disrupting the flow of work at your business. Most of the work will be done after hours. When employees return to work, they will each get their own passwords, giving them access to the information they need to do their work. No downtime.
That’s just the beginning. With a third-party provider, security is greatly enhanced. The servers where your company information is stored are monitored around the clock. If there is any hint of an issue with security, such as someone trying to gain unauthorized access to your servers, the technicians will know right away and can respond before your information is compromised. It’s like having an army of security professionals watching your important company information all the time and keeping it protected.
Here’s one more way having your information stored away from your business headquarters makes sense. It’s protected from corporate sabotage and environmental disasters. If your business’s location is damaged or destroyed, you and your staff can continue to work from anywhere, because your information is safe.
