Cloud Computing and the New Businesses

Cloud Computing and the New Businesses

The latest technology can help businesses compete with even large organizations if it’s implemented properly. The cloud is one of these tools that helps new businesses take advantage of goods and services previously inaccessible to those with limited budgets and in-house assets. In fact, the cloud is one of the few solutions your organization can implement that actually grow alongside your business.

Here are some solutions you can implement through the cloud for the benefit of your business.

The Cloud Communications
The cloud is a great way to implement new communications solutions, like your phone system or email. For example, traditional telephone systems can be frustrating to make changes to on a whim. This means that whenever you want to add more endpoints or handsets, you have to run new telephone lines and set up extensions. The cloud makes all of these communication solutions much more freeing compared to the traditional methods as long as you have enough bandwidth to support access to them.

The Cloud for Data Storage
Data storage is one of the biggest uses that the cloud has, especially for budding businesses. With access to files from anywhere on any connected device, employees can be as productive as can be as long as they have the right permissions. If your organization hosts data in the cloud, it can lead to more flexibility in the workplace as well, as work can be done without the confines of the traditional desktop environment. Do be careful to limit data access, though, as employees should only have access to data that is immediately needed for their specific job description.

The Cloud for Application Access
All businesses rely on some kind of application, whether it’s an email client, point of sale software, or a simple productivity suite like Microsoft Office. This means you need multiple software licenses on each of your devices for using the applications. If you store them in the cloud, they can be accessed as they are needed by anyone with an account. This makes patching and updating software solutions much easier than in the past.

Your business can benefit from the cloud in countless ways. To find out where you can start, reach out to us at 217-475-0226.
