Agile companies are seizing opportunities around the cloud to create innovative new services and business models that decrease time to market, create operational efficiencies and engage customers in new ways. Cloud services like Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Software-as-a-Service (SasS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Business Process-as-a-Service (BPaaS) are more than technology delivery paradigms.
Cloud computing is a great way that small business owners can save money, time and hassle on a daily basis. Here are a few benefits of cloud for small businesses:
Reduction of Costs: Cloud-hosted servers enable mass-scale computing power and minimize IT requirements and physical storage, providing a significant savings.
Anytime, Anywhere: Cloud-hosted desktops allow users to access their files anytime, anywhere, using any device. Files are no longer stuck on one single computer.
Ease of Collaboration: Saving and accessing files through the cloud allows everyone to work from the same master document. Administrators can even implement access and permission controls.
Reduces Risk: The cloud adds security for its users by backing-up data off-site, decreasing the potential for hackers, viruses, and other cyber-security issues.
Improves Efficiency: After migrating to the cloud, companies no longer worry about power requirements, space considerations or software updates.
