Cloud computing is ground-breaking because it represents a shift in many ways
First, it is a holistic approach, distinct from the per-module, per-business one. In the past, each business unit of any organization was basically responsible for the information within its sphere — no more, no less. As a result, any sharing of information between and among the various units proved problematic. The difficulties increased with the volume of data and the time needed to respond. Executive decisions were thus made, sometimes based on non-current input. There are delays and excesses incurred, all of which translate to additional costs that ultimately affect the company’s bottom line.
Cloud computing consolidates all the information so that there is a single data source for the customers, CEO, CFO, sales manager, partners, vendors and other stakeholders in the company. But it does more. Cloud computing is superior to an onsite ERP because it is no longer seen as a one-time big-time capital expenditure. Instead, it is a service that an organization avails itself of and pays for on a regular basis. From being a capital expenditure, it becomes part of the operating expenses.
This does away with the problems of always making sure that the company’s software and hardware are always in the latest version for maximum compatibility. By merely subscribing tocloud computing services, such as the ones provided by CloudTech, companies can focus on the core of their business, making it more competitive instead of worrying about whether they have the latest IT requirements to keep their systems running smoothly. Despite these obvious benefits, some remain apprehensive about keeping the information secure in the cloud. There are numerous approaches that ensure security — network separation, user id and password management, code software, vulnerability scanning and many others. According to an industry expert, the dependence of cloud security is the same as our dependence on public transport, specifically air transport, in terms of relying on things we can have no complete control over.
It helps that the service provider we choose, like Cloudtech, has a reputation for expertise and integrity. Cloudtech is in a position to highlight the economic benefits of cloud computing over its many imagined dangers.
