Cloud computing started to gain mainstream attention by the mid 2000s. However, cloud computing has become a popular option for firms with established IT teams and plenty of in-house technology. In its current state, cloud computing continues to grow exponentially with the public, which is expected to reach $623.3 billion by 2023 worldwide. So cloud computing sounds expensive, right? It’s actually quite the contrary. Cloud computing’s cost reductions may help you manage your budget while also increasing workplace efficiency. With respects to costs, cloud computing can help a firm in the following ways:
Lessen The Burden On IT
Companies using cloud computing can reduce their internal IT headcount. As a result, immediate savings are realized from headcount alone. Additionally, IT employees that are displaced up from cloud computing, can be reassigned on more value-added IT activities. For example, a tech business may choose to focus more on their core offerings by delivering higher-quality IT. To do so, this business would assign displaced IT employees to provide additional support to their core business.
Reduce The Need For Infrastructure
As a cloud partner, we help businesses maintain complex technologies and infrastructures. In general, high-tech operations seem to benefit the most from cloud computing. These operations typically demand computer clusters and data centers, which requires dedicated resources and plenty of floorspace to manage. By partnering with a cloud partner to migrate to the cloud, these same companies avoid the headaches of physically managing clusters and data centers.
Because of increased employee productivity, cloud computing can be incredibly cost-effective for a business to adopt. On average, deploying software in the cloud is significantly faster than the traditional method of installing software on devices. In other words, what took weeks or months to install software across a whole firm may take hours to deploy in the cloud. As a result, IT employees spend less time deploying and more time working.
The Bottom Line
Cloud computing offers many advantages for businesses, including eliminating redundancies, increased opportunity for remote work and collaboration, and retraining or specialization of IT personnel. The hype is real and cloud computing is here to stay. Hence, we recommend our business partners to migrate into the cloud to free up time and resources for use in other things.
