While moving to the cloud was once only done by large companies, now the cloud is available and accessible to companies of all sizes. As the benefits of moving to the cloud continue to increase for businesses of all sizes, Unified Network Group is poised to help you chart a path to moving your business to the cloud.
Many businesses are trying to determine if now is the best time to move to the cloud. There are a few ways to assess whether the time is right to make the switch:
How to Know if Now’s the Time to Move to the Cloud
Need for Remote Access
Depending on the type of business you run, remote access may be a necessity. If you need your workforce to be able to access data or programs remotely, moving to the cloud is likely a requirement. With cloud computing your employees will be able to work remotely from anywhere, provided they have an internet connection.
Age of Servers and Workstations
If your servers and workstations are reaching their end of life, it could be a great time to upgrade your infrastructure and move it to the cloud. You may even be able to skip out on some of these significant capital expenses by moving to the cloud.
Looking for Predictable IT Costs
If you’re managing your own in-house IT infrastructure, you likely understand that IT costs can be extremely hard to predict. This can make budgeting extremely difficult. With cloud computing you can have known monthly costs based on the size of your company to ensure that you can budget for these expenses throughout the year without wondering about unexpected infrastructure costs.
Your Current Software is Outdated
If the major software tools that you use on a daily basis are old and outdated, you could greatly benefit from cloud services. Chances are newer software is either hosted in the cloud or can offer a whole slew of new features that you’re likely missing out on due to your older software.
