Drive down costs: Avoid large capital expenditure on hardware and upgrades. Cloud can also improve cost efficiency by more closely matching your cost pattern to your revenue/demand pattern, moving your business from a capital-intensive cost model to an Opex model.
Cope with demand: You know what infrastructure you need today, but what about your future requirements? As your business grows, a cloud environment should grow with you. And when demand is unpredictable or you need to test a new application, you have the ability spin capacity up or down, while paying only for what you use.
Run your business; don’t worry about your IT: Monitoring your infrastructure 24/7 is time consuming and expensive when you have a business to run. A managed cloud solution means that your hosting provider is doing this for you. In addition to monitoring your infrastructure and keeping your data safe, they can provide creative and practical solutions to your needs, as well as expert advice to keep your IT infrastructure working efficiently as your needs evolve.
Innovate and lead: Ever-changing business requirements mean that your IT infrastructure has to be flexible. With a cloud infrastructure, you can rapidly deploy new projects and take them live quickly, keeping you at the vanguard of innovation in your sector.
Improved security and compliance: You have to protect your business against loss of revenue and brand damage. In addition, many organizations face strict regulatory and compliance obligations. A cloud environment means that this responsibility no longer rests entirely on your shoulders. Your cloud hosting provider will build in resiliency and agility at an infrastructure-level to limit the risk of a security breach, and will work with you to help address compliance and regulatory requirements.
