Why you should Move Your Business to the Cloud

What is Azure?

Microsoft Azure is an ever-expanding set of cloud services to help your organization meet your business challenges. It’s the freedom to build, manage, and deploy applications on a massive, global network using your favourite tools and framework.

Whether you want to build apps and websites, or store, back up and analyse data, Azure offers an efficient and cost-effective solution.

Benefits of Moving your business to the Cloud:

  • Less Cost 

By moving some of your infrastructure to the cloud, you’ll reduce the costs of IT equipment, upgrades and support.  Cloud storage is very easy to scale up or down which means you are not paying for something you are not using. Also the service provider takes care of the back end, you save both the money and time required for doing your own IT maintenance.

  • More Security  

When you store information on the Cloud you have complete control over who sees it.  What if an employee loses their laptop? No Problem! You can use the Cloud to remotely wipe the information before it can seen. Cloud services are indispensable. Your data will be automatically backed up off-site, ensuring your files are protected if your business’s primary systems suffer a power outage, natural disaster or egregious human error.

  • Better Collaboration 

When you share a cloud program it is possible for employees to be working on the same document/project at the same time even continents apart. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)-based tools removes pitfalls so your team works together more efficiently.

  • Easy Accessibility to work from anywhere  

With the Cloud, there is just so much more flexibility to the workplace. A great example of the ability to work from anywhere is aproving a document or scheduling a meeting during your child’s soccer game becomes as easy as if you were sitting at your desk.
