Driven by the desire to reduce costs, increase productivity, and generally become more competitive, business owners continue to look to the cloud for answers. ‘Cloud computing’ is an umbrella term that covers a variety of services delivered over the Internet and made accessible to staff from their connected devices. Choosing can be daunting. So, the best way to decide when, how and why to use cloud services is to work with a managed service provider (MSP) like TeamLogic IT Plano. Many companies started with solutions in these three areas and have gone on to integrate others:
1) Software as a Service (SaaS). With SaaS, you simply pay for using the software without worrying about installation, setup or updates, which the provider handles. The most popular types of SaaS solutions include, accounting, HR, project management, customer support and project management.
2) File storage and management. Storing critical data onsite comes with certain risks and drawbacks. Keeping/archiving files securely offsite, in the cloud, can reduce storage and management costs, and, often, improve security and regulatory compliance. Data backup is one example of cloud storage.
3) Disaster recovery. With the cloud, recovering and restoring backed-up data and applications lost to cyber crime, negligence or natural disaster requires only a computer and an Internet connection. In most cases, the benefits of adopting cloud-based solutions far outweigh the risks for small business owners. Sources predict that up to 78% of small business will soon adopt cloud computing.
