World Backup Day is Sunday, March 31. It is a date that’s been strategically chosen to encourage people to back up their computers, files, and drives to the cloud before disaster strikes, our data is lost, and we all become “April fools.”
For small-to-medium sized businesses, the benefits of cloud computing go far beyond the convenience of a backup. Cloud computing can lower the cost of doing business, improve daily processes, deliver valuable business intelligence, and supercharge your marketing strategy – and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
What Is Cloud Computing?
Cloud computing is an additional form of backup for your stored information that allows you to access your business documents as long as you have internet access.
With your company’s data housed safely in the cloud, your files and applications are accessible anytime, anywhere, and from any device. From your field team to the c-suite, your employees will be connected to the productivity tools and analytics that they need, when they need them.
The cloud supports your cybersecurity strategy as well, with robust tools and configurable permissions to ensure your data is protected from incoming threats. If you experience sudden scale, you will be able to scale your server capacity with a few clicks, something that wouldn’t be possible with a physical server.
The cloud also supports technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and the internet of things (IoT), technologies that will help you delight your customers and translate your data into valuable business insights.
What Cloud Computing Can Do for You
Cloud computing is a must in today’s fast-paced business world. Some of its many benefits include:
- Protect Your Business Continuity: Should a disaster happen, such as a power outage, storm, flood, fire, or loss of your business location for any reason, your data is protected and can be fully restored on demand. If you do business online, that aspect of your business will never miss a beat – in fact, your customers probably won’t even notice a thing.
- Protection from Cyber Threats: Doing business in the cloud means you have access to the latest in cybersecurity protection. Updates and backups are performed automatically so your IT department can focus on higher-value tasks, rather than worrying about hackers getting into your business information.
- Optimize Productivity: Your teams will be more productive than ever with collaborative tools like Microsoft Office 365, virtual desktops, and unified communications, helping them connect, communicate, collaborate, and innovate effortlessly.
