What’s the trend Business and IT giants are mostly keen on? Replacing their legacy systems…AND on-premises technology with the cloud! We’ll be discussing the latter. The birth of the cloud has introduced a revolutionary technology that has reduced IT costs, improved security, and accelerated growth and efficiency for an endless number of organizations amongst all industries. For instance, the startup time for a team of developers has been cut from 6 months to 10 days!
Choosing the proper cloud platform is only a small part of the whole cloud transformation project, something many organizations found out about the hard way. It’s about bringing a new way of doing what we’ve been doing in IT for a long time. Here are five ways cloud could leverage your IT operations:
Increase in Speed
technology allows any business to easily scale, meaning that you’ll be moving at a speed that your business needs to move at to be competitive, as it saves budget spent on integration and setup time as the security, monitoring, and reporting are already integrated.
No End-of-life risk
When setting up physical infrastructure, concerns arise about how long hardware may work properly before needing to replace some of its components, which may require a solid license agreement and possibly long-term contracts.
Luckily, with cloud technologies, there is no need to worry about or licensing problems,
Integrating/ Consolidating data center
Because of cloud computing, companies nowadays do not need to have their own on-premises data centers – instead, they can outsource all the backend activities/responsibilities to a 3rd party, freeing up internal resources to take care of other key deliverables within their businesses.
Many companies started adopting a digital transformation during the pandemic – with cloud technology they have been able to digitalize core activities including CRM, data analytics, and much more!
Those who chose to update their legacy systems are now left with more versatile options…once on the cloud, the possibilities are limitless!
Leverage New Technologies
Migrating to the cloud opens up the door to many opportunities in terms of leveraging new technologies. For instance, an organization would take advantage of machine learning and AI, which may not be doable on-premise, but may be made possible by integrating complex native cloud technologies, like Kubernetes containers and data lakes…on top of everything, the cloud could let you do so in just minutes!
Moving to a cloud was just an option in the past, and not everyone could afford it, nowadays there’s a need to stay competitive. Thousands of companies have made the leap during the pandemic, and choosing not to adopt will leave your organization frozen in the past.
