Have you ever taken a puppy on a walk? The trials and tribulations that accompany this first interaction with a leash can be quite an ordeal. Rope burns behind your knees, getting wrapped around a mailbox, clotheslined by a tree and constantly untangling their little legs all turn a leisurely stroll into quite a chore. The same is now true for your small business’ technology.
Advancements in cloud computing mean that you and your staff no longer have to be tethered to a desk in order to access important documents, communicate or essentially handle any key business operation. Intuit predicts that by 2020 over 80% of U.S. small businesses will adapt to the cloud. Here are three reasons why your Baton Rouge small business should make the move to the cloud.
1.) Flexibility: Having the ability to work from anywhere across a variety of devices and platforms can streamline your day-to-day operations. The cloud also easily scales with your needs.
2.) Cost: There are significant savings to be found by transitioning to the cloud. Instead of having physical file storage and making investments into infrastructure, the cloud can virtualize everything allowing you to do more with less.
3.) Automation: Maintaining and updating hardware, software, security and backups can be both time-consuming and expensive. Instead of hiring an I.T. staff, the cloud can automatically update and implement most applications.
These are only a few of the huge advantages that come with working in the cloud. As cloud computing technology continues to advance it will only become more secure, more cost-effective and have more advanced capabilities.
