The Key Reasons Why Organisations Move to The Cloud

There are many reasons that organisations are moving to the cloud, and below we've examined the leading ones.

If you recognise your business here get in touch to see how we can help you.

1. Your servers need a boost!
Have you discovered that your servers need upgrading? This is one of the most common reasons for organisations considering transitioning their organisation to the cloud. No longer are large upfront investments required to support business applications. Our cloud platform provides a pay-as-you-go service without huge upfront costs.

2. You're thinking about your disaster recovery capability
Moving your data and applications to the cloud often dramatically improves an organisation's ability to recover quickly from a local or regional disaster. What would happen to your organisation's ability to operate if one of its server rooms had a fire?

3. You're rolling out new business applications
New business applications often stress existing server infrastructure past what it was designed for, bringing all systems to a crawl. Using a cloud-based approach allows an organisation to purchase infrastructure as required to eliminate this project risk, and scale as needed.

4. Your business is growing rapidly
Being part of a rapidly growing organisation requires infrastructure that can scale as fast as you need it to. The cloud brings this flexibility allowing you to scale up or down as you require without large up front investments. A cloud-based approach has become the default for startup and high growth organisations due to the simple pay-as-you-go model.

5. You need to make investment in new software
It is common to find organisations needing to make large upfront license purchases. Using a cloud-based subscription service allows the organisation to enjoy 'ever-green' licensing that they can scale up or down (and always have the latest software versions available to use), without the one-off investments.

6. Office 365 Implementation
Implementing cloud applications such as SharePoint Online as part of an Office 365 roll-out is another common entry point for enterprises into the cloud.
