What are the Advantages of Cloud Computing? 5 Reasons to Move to the Cloud

Posted by Laura Bradsell on 12/08/2021

If 2020 does not ring alarm bells for business leaders to understand the importance for data to be on the cloud - then it could be the distinction between surviving or not. 

In today's day and age, and especially through workforces around the world working remotely and from home, companies more than ever are seeing the modern day business advantages of cloud computing. 

From multiple users to view data in realtime and share projects effortlessly without being in the same office, to cloud software and SaaS applications making team working to be in sync, easier and more accessible than ever.

By 2020, Forbes Magazine estimated up to 83% of companies will use cloud-based software to make their work easier and faster.

So, why are many businesses taking advantage of cloud computing and why should your business too? 

Cloud services increase efficiency, help improve cash flow, competitiveness and many other more benefits. 

 

Check out the top 5 reasons below from expert cloud business leaders.

  

1. Cloud computing is flexible

The obvious benefit of cloud computing is the fact that there are no “on premise” data server units. Thus giving a thriving opportunity for businesses that are either growing fast or that need to downsize. Whatever your business needs are to grow or downsize, it is easy to draw on your remote servers to scale up or down. 

This level of agility can give businesses using cloud computing a real advantage over competitors – it’s not surprising that businesses identify operational agility as a key reason for cloud adoption.

Businesses of all sizes should therefore be investing in robust disaster recovery, but for smaller businesses that lack the required cash and expertise, this is often more an ideal than the reality. In fact, cloud-based recovery solutions are now available in a variety of formats that save time, avoid large up-front investment and roll up third-party expertise as part of the deal.

 

2. Staying up to date 

Many of the top cloud vendors are improving their service on a continual basis - this means their regular software updates are installing themselves automatically.

The automation of these regular software updates mean that you can stay up to date with issues around security for example without having to do anything on your end manually.

So you don’t have to worry about wasting time maintaining the system yourself. Leaving you free to focus on the things that matter, like growing your business.

  

3. The cloud promotes collaboration

When your teams can access, edit and share documents anytime, from anywhere, they’re able to do more together, and do it better. 

Many of the top cloud vendors offer a cloud-based workflow and also include file sharing apps to help them make updates in real time and give them full visibility of their collaborations. 

And since most established cloud vendors also offer mobile apps, your teams are not even restricted by which device they have to use leaving them options to work on the laptop, phone, ipad, whatever you’ve got to hand!

With this more collaborative approach that technology caters to, this allows your workforce to enjoy a work-life balance that suits them - without productivity taking a hit. 

 

4. Streamlined content

Before the cloud, employees had to send files back and forth as an email attachment to be worked on by one user at a time. And more often than not, usually very often, they would end up with a mess of duplicate files with wrong changes on the latest file attachment. This meant that there was an issue around the need for a watertight document control. 

And as even the smallest companies become more global, the scope for such complication rises. 

However, when you make the move to the cloud, all files are stored centrally and everyone sees one version of the truth. This greater visibility means improved collaboration, which ultimately means better work and a healthier bottom line. If you’re still relying on the old way, it could be time to try something a little more streamlined.

 

5. How does cloud computing support CRM?

While any of the above benefits are a great incentive for moving a business to the cloud, effective implementation of new customer relationship management (CRM) tools through cloud services are the icing on the cake. 

This is why Salesforce pioneered enterprise cloud computing. From CRM products to marketing automation tools, all of our solutions will be entirely cloud-based. Streamlining both your business and the way customers interact with it – all at the same time.

In order to stay competitive, companies need to go further with building their CRMs in order to flourish their customer relationships.
