The benefits of Cloud Computing:

  • Low overheads. Upgrades, maintenance and system administration take place in the cloud and are managed by the provider.
  • Ease of access anytime anywhere. Cloud computing is “always on,” making it easy to grow your business and support remote workers and locations, or support a highly mobile sales or service team.
  • High availability. Cloud software architectures are designed from the ground up for maximum network performance.
  • Security. For many companies, the level of security and availability, disaster recovery and back-up provided by a SaaS provider far exceeds that which they can provide themselves.
  • Fast deployment. You can be up and running with ERP, CRM or e-commerce applications, on a local or global scale, within a few months, rather than the six to 12 months for conventional servers and software.
  • Optimized performance. The cloud adjusts to your performance needs, dynamically assigning server cycles whenever and wherever you need them, and automatically adjusting to spikes in your business.
  • Subscription-based pricing. You pay as you go, often on an annual basis, unlike conventional systems where you have to make a major up-front investment in licenses, hardware and software. You benefit from better cash flow and far greater IT flexibility.
  • Energy savings. By eliminating the need for on-premise hardware, cloud computing reduces overall server room electric consumption as well, which can save a mid-size businesses more $10,000 or more per year, according to a recent sustainability impact study.

Best of all, cloud computing lets you focus on your business rather than on your software.
