Small and medium sized businesses often struggle with trying to keep IT costs down while growing business simultaneously. These companies are increasingly turning to cloud based services to achieve just that goal.
A recent report by O’Reilly Media shows SMB’s on average save 30% on IT costs over a three year period when opting to employ cloud based services as opposed to on-site implementation. Another study performed by KPMG shows that 81 per cent of businesses are either planning, are in the early or advanced stages of experimentation, or already have complete cloud implementations.
10% of SMBs are already running all core IT services on the cloud and an additional 13% are currently implementing plans to do so.
76% of business leaders surveyed said economic factors were encouraging them to embrace cloud-based technology, while 80% said they were looking to improve processes, offering more agility across the enterprise.
There are numerous cloud based services available that integrate seamlessly with existing technologies, allowing for access to business critical email, documents and services from anywhere, on any device with a browser.
With IT services becoming more reliable and readily available in the cloud, these alternatives are now very attractive to decrease sometimes overwhelming IT costs, and to be more predictable and scalable. By migrating applications hosted in-house to services in the cloud, it becomes possible to better optimize the cost of software, paying only for whatever is used.
When transitioning services to the cloud, business owners can expect:
All of these benefits allow you to stay focused on your core business, be more collaborative, and get your products/services to market sooner by leveraging a service infrastructure that was once available only to larger companies.
