Cloud-based Solutions: Makes Inhouse IT Passe’

by | Jan 29, 2021 | 0 comments

Cloud-based solutions for data storage and use have become indispensable for businesses. Yet, many companies still persist is believing that having data and processing on their own computers and servers provides greater security and control. This could not be further from the truth.


Cloud-based applications are significantly more secure, reliable, and efficient than hosting on your own hardware.  Cloud-computing is simply using computers and servers resident through the Internet, rather than having physical hardware owned by the company. Your software is hosted, managed, and delivered via the Internet which offers a multitude of benefits.

Cloud computing/storage saves time, money, and resources that you would normally assign to the hardware and staff running software in-house. Additionally, with cloud use, all of  the company’s computers can be connected to a single cloud-service (including all lap-tops, tablets, and phones). With all the information  securely stored, backed-up, and managed from a single central location – which means you could operate your business from anywhere in the world.

In the current business environment success is very dependent on optimizing efficiencies and cloud-based solutions deliver on this. They are also less costly and offer more flexibility than in-house systems and, perhaps most importantly, free up time and staff to work on core business and customer development and service.

Users can scale services to suit their needs and requirements. They can personalize applications and have 24/7 worldwide access. Flexibility, efficiency, and strategic value offered by some of the largest tech companies, such as Amazon, Microsoft, IBM.
