Benefits of moving businesses to the cloud

Reduced cost

Cloud computing removes hardware and software capital expenses, setup and configuration expenses and office infrastructure which helps a business channel the resources to other vital business projects.

Increased productivity

On site data centers and IT infrastructures means that IT experts spend majority of their time “racking and stacking”. Use of cloud computing eliminates these intensive activities and this translates to few IT employees are needed and the available employees focus on more important issues.


At times, businesses need to scale up or down depending on their business strategy. Moving or expanding on-premise facilities like email servers is very resource and time intensive. Scaling services in the cloud is very simple as it only involves subscribing or unsubscribing to a particular service.

Despite these benefits, security is the major setback in the success of cloud services. Current security measures set aside when protecting sending files by emails, storage applications like Dropbox and firewall configurations are not strong enough to prevent latest strategies by intruders.
