4 Ways Cloud Technology Can Improve Your IT Operations

Posted on: September 3rd, 2019

Cloud technology has been around for a while, but it only being adopted by organisations recently. In fact, businesses are seeing significant improvements to their IT operations, enabling growth and increased profitability. Outlined below are 4 ways cloud technology can improve your IT operations.

1. Lower operating costs and increased cost-efficiency

By utilising cloud technology, your business can see increased profit and ability to grow. Cloud storage eliminates the need for physical hardware and computers, which removes significant upfront costs that are required when purchasing equipment. Moreover, many businesses find that they can reduce the size of their IT departments by utilising the support of your cloud technology providers. Utilising cloud computing frees up time for IT staff, allowing them to focus on internal improvements.

Similarly, cloud technology also makes it easier to scale. Businesses see increased cost-efficiency as they are only paying for what they need.

2. Reliability and security

With the cloud, your data is backed up on multiple servers in different locations. This reduces the risk of accidental data loss or damage to hardware. Furthermore, cloud technology allows for instant updates and constant monitoring.

Many people still believe that the cloud is not secure. However, research has found that the majority of cloud technology security failures are due to human error. Security breaches often result from human error and the blurred lines between personal and work devices.

3. Improved scalability

One of the most significant ways that the cloud can improve your IT operations is through increased scalability. In the past, you would need to make additions to actual hardware if you wanted to, for example, change the amount of storage. With the cloud, you can quickly scale up or down to keep up with your changing business needs.  

4. Boosted productivity

Cloud computing allows employees to share information quickly and access information on the go. In fact, employees have the power to interact freely, which enhances team communication and the exchange of ideas resulting in improved teamwork and innovation.

Using cloud technology can help your business to lower costs, improve your security and scalability, and boost employee productivity.
