There has been quite a lot of negativity making the headlines in recent months. At times the business world can seem filled with lists of what not to do with very little useable advice for anyone without immediate access to a time machine. Alongside this, constant changes to the day to day functioning of a business, with an emphasis on moving towards a more digital focus can create confusion when trying to merge with a standard business model. With this in mind, we have decided to bring you some vital information and advice on how to navigate the digital aspects of the business world.
One of the terms we hear over and over these days is “The Cloud”, everyone wanting to know what we have uploaded or backed up to “The Cloud” can often raise the wrong images for those not familiar with the terminology so over the next couple of weeks we will be going into detail about how “The Cloud” can benefit you and your business.
In simple terms, utilising the Cloud or ‘Cloud Computing’ essentially means the storing and accessing of date over the Internet instead of on your computer’s hard drive. The Cloud itself is a network of servers, each one serving a different function. When looking to solve any problem, be it personal or business, we tend to reach out to our support network and in this way the Cloud is no different, acting as another support structure for you and your business.
According to professionals in the area, the below are some of the first stepping stones for getting your business onto the road of Cloud Computing. It could not be simpler to get your business moving into the digital age with ease:
- Evaluate if a move to the cloud is right for your business
- Learn how to build a cloud strategy plan that supports your business goals
- Understand cloud investment models
- How to optimise your existing cloud infrastructure
- How to increase the reliability and flexibility of your IT infrastructure
- Understand how cloud solutions can extend additional services to your customers and open new business opportunities
- Which cloud-delivered security solutions offer the best protection against modern security threats
- How cloud solutions can support your business continuity plans
- Practical steps to moving to the cloud, how to avoid business disruption, migration plans and piloting workloads
Should you feel that this would be a step in the right direction for your business, we would advise holding a training event for your staff to ensure everyone is aware of this new approach being taken.
