Why should you consider moving to the cloud?

Odds are, much of your computing is already taking place in the cloud. If you use an online service such as Office 365, Salesforce or Dropbox, you are already taking advantage of the reliability and efficiencies of cloud computing.

The switch to the cloud, as opposed to traditional on-premise servers, requires a paradigm shift in how your business operates. However, that shift often comes with tremendous benefits.

Compliance & Security
New regulations require much more strict controls on data security. Top cloud computing services can help to mitigate risks by implementing security protocols that can be costly to implement (and continue to monitor and maintain) for most small business infrastructures.
Work Anywhere
A popular reason for cloud computing is the ability access your data anywhere at anytime. However, it is more than that. When your business runs in the cloud, it becomes much easier to recover from a natural disaster as your data is geo-redundant.
Lower costs
As your business is migrated to the cloud, you are able to pay for what you need. Your servers and process can be designed to scale up (or down) as needed, providing the necessary resources to your users. This allows your users to get more done, be more efficient, while keeping your costs lower by only paying for the resources that you need, when you need them.

How can I tell if I am ready to move to the cloud?

End of Life
Has your existing infrastructure reached end of life and you are due for a hardware refresh? Instead of making a significant capital expense, an evaluation can be made to switch to a lower operating expense.
Line of Business Application Changes
If your business is in the process of upgrading or replacing your line of business application, that is a perfect time to reevaluate your current needs. A migration to a cloud version may be the right choice, as it can provide future efficiencies and other benefits.
New Regulations
New government regulations and data controls often add more costs to support and maintain your existing infrastructure. Moving to a reputable cloud provider helps to meet many regulations; allowing the implementation of security and data standards, protecting your data.
