A more innovative work environment thanks to efficient cloud technology
Although the cloud is not a new technology, its continuous development has made it the most efficient model for managing data and services from existing infrastructures.
Due to the flexibility, security and scalability it allows compared to on-premises solutions, moving to the cloud is now a must for many companies. However, many companies make the mistake of overcomplicating their cloud. The easiest way to measure the benefits of the cloud is to see if it can run smoothly in the back office, something most employees in non-IT-related roles don’t have.
Cloud computing, the new essential platform?
Employees must be able to communicate and work effectively and safely without encountering the slightest problem on a daily basis. With an efficient cloud, organizations enable their employees to work seamlessly from anywhere, thus increasing optimal productivity.
In addition, IT managers can use the cloud to choose the best mission-critical solutions for their business, without worrying about how employees will own it. The cloud gives companies of all sizes access to a wide range of tools to help their employees get their work done efficiently in the office or at home, while providing excellent customer service.
Need good cloud support
Organizations must use robust technologies to ensure optimal cloud operation supported by robust infrastructure, including servers, storage devices, network and cloud management software, deployment software, and platform virtualization.
Now with the new Wi-Fi 6-E standard, businesses can benefit from a stronger, more reliable and stable connection within the building to ensure optimal performance of cloud-based applications.
Expect problems thanks to Paas (Platform as a Service).
Businesses today are increasingly dependent on IT and need a platform they can always rely on to operate.
Relying on PaaS, an IT platform that integrates hardware, software and infrastructure hosted in the cloud, it offers companies a full range of services to meet all their needs. Completely transparent to IT teams, this platform makes it much easier to create, manage and use applications.
However, some problems may occur, such as storage capacity or service interruptions caused by failures or errors in the management of the underground platform.
Therefore, it is very important for the organization to foresee these problems in order not to disturb the work of the employees and not to cause discomfort while performing their duties.
More flexibility to innovate
The time and budget required to implement new platforms are the two main factors preventing organizations from innovating. Implementing these services in-house can be labor-intensive and can slow down an organization as it tries to maintain its competitive edge and market readiness.
Using the cloud to develop new products and services frees up teams’ time and energy, allowing them to innovate without worrying about new infrastructure. In addition, launching new services with the cloud is often faster: new configurations can be up and running within hours, and costs are significantly reduced as the business only pays for the time spent (rather than hardware and infrastructure).
The cloud business model has dramatically changed the way services are consumed. The subscription offer allows the customer to change his account according to his actual usage and gives him the option to cancel the services at any time when they become unusable. This subscription, which does not require any initial investment, is a real added value for the user.
Adapt to an ever-changing business
It’s important to have a system that can adapt to the different stages of transformation that all companies go through, whether it’s expanding buildings, opening new sites, or closing them down. This is especially true in mergers and acquisitions that require time-consuming steps to optimize data recording or transmission.
However, with systems hosted in the cloud, these operations are easier to perform. The cloud enables simplified data exchange between two organizations, resulting in a merger or acquisition that is almost instantaneous and seamless. And a significant advantage is that it gives the employees of the two merging organizations the feeling of creating a new combined team.
Continuity in all cases
Controlling costs and workload during a crisis remains a challenge for every organization. A big advantage of the cloud is the speed and ease with which operations can be changed and scaled to adapt to new circumstances with full transparency for employees.
This new way of managing business risks is especially valuable in the context of disaster recovery. Backing up data in the cloud allows organizations to restore it immediately with the highest transparency for employees, always minimizing downtime before resuming operations.
Collaborate without space limitations thanks to the cloud
The cloud allows companies to create a multi-region infrastructure that can be accessed from anywhere, anytime, across geographic boundaries. It gives the impression of a group’s several international subsidiaries as a single entity working in complete unity to achieve common goals. Thanks to the cloud, it is important that this collaboration is transparent. In conclusion, the company should continue to use the cloud as much as possible to ensure an efficient and secure work environment.
