Virtualized applications and systems ensure the mobility and efficiency of the teams, accelerating the digitization of the business. The corporate world is becoming increasingly dynamic, especially after the social isolation measures imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, having mobility and not being trapped in physical spaces has become not a whim, but a necessity.
With this, more and more companies are looking for solutions to operate with high productivity with the remote access of their employees. In this sense, Cloud solutions should further accelerate digital transformation in business. Next, we’ll talk about the benefits of this solution.
Everything about cloud technology
Cloud technology (cloud computing, or cloud computing) is the feature that allows the use of systems, networks, applications, and other tools of a remote company through the internet. With Cloud solutions, you can access the systems from anywhere, while just connecting to the internet. This allows everyone to access corporate e-mail while staying at home during the pandemic. It also allows people from different areas to access a company system at the same time and in different locations, just through an internet connection. In other words, everything your employees need to work is in the cloud and, mainly, can be accessed through computers, cell phones, and other gadgets.
The benefits of the cloud for businesses
LogicMonitor research indicates that 87% of global IT decision-makers believe that the Covid-19 pandemic will cause organizations to accelerate their migration to the cloud. 74% of respondents understand that 95% of all workloads will be in the cloud in the next five years. That way, you can see that the cloud is here to stay and become even more popular. This is because this feature has several advantages. Here are a few:
Instead of the limitations of physical resources, the cloud allows the use of more tools. This way, everyone can use systems and other technologies simultaneously and even increase their use during periods of high demand.
Everyone can access systems, software, networks, files, and everything else a company needs, from anywhere. No more suffering with slowness or system crashes: the cloud allows everything to be available to those who need it.
More availability and possibilities increase work agility. That way, you can do even more and intelligently. This agility also allows the efficiency of the work to be greater, and, thus, the company grows much more.
Although it is even more necessary to protect yourself from cyber-attacks today, the cloud is also more secure, as long as the company does its homework. Features like antivirus, VPN, firewalls, blockchain, and others contribute not only to prevent attacks and leaks but mainly to prevent data loss.
Maintaining physical servers is expensive, as it demands a structure that many companies do not have. That way, when migrating to the cloud, you can count on much more efficient and cheaper solutions.
It allows you to create a trace of the document identifying dates and authors. Therefore, this technology helps your company to prepare for audits, in addition to adapting to data protection laws, such as LGPD and GDPR.
Working with cloud document or process storage can save your company’s productivity, organization, and security. After all, how to maintain productivity if it is not possible to access the information necessary to perform the work?
Besides, if you are thinking of starting a cloud storage project: before choosing the technology, make a list of the problems that your company has regarding access and information management. Once this is done, choose which problem should be prioritized. Then, research and invest in appropriate technology and, if possible, make a return on investment (ROI) analysis. That way, it will be easier to sell the project internally.
