The cloud has always been a natural fit for small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs). Accessing applications and data in the cloud is far more cost-efficient than building, managing and maintaining on-premises systems. Buy only the services you need and scale up or down as necessary. Also, having “anytime, anywhere” access to critical business resources creates more flexibility, which allows you to be more productive, collaborative and innovative.
In a nutshell, the cloud gets you out of the business of managing technology so you can focus on strategic initiatives that produce revenue. Not surprisingly, 78 percent of SMBs will adopt cloud computing by 2020, according to a Microsoft study.
Of course, migration to the cloud isn’t as simple as flipping a switch. Without the right strategy and expertise, you could end up disrupting business operations, frustrating employees and customers, losing data, and increasing the risk of a security breach.
Suppose you make it through migration unscathed. How will you integrate the cloud with your on-premises systems? How will you monitor activity across these environments? How will you know if compliance regulations are being satisfied? The inability to manage cloud-based resources often causes SMBs to blow up their IT budgets, which can negate any cost savings that they planned to achieve by moving to the cloud in the first place.
This is why SMBs need to partner with a reliable, qualified Cloud Solution Provider.
