Moving IT infrastructures to the cloud is gaining popularity, but some companies remain on the fence whether to make the switch or continue with an on-premise system. There are many benefits to consider that may tip the scales in favor of migrating to the cloud, especially now that the power of Sage 100 and Sage 300 is available with Cloud at Work for a solution to help you move to cloud on your own terms.
How cloud will improve your business
- Invest in your business, not hardware. When you have a traditional, in-house data center, you become beholden to maintaining hardware. While updates will help keep everything current for a short time, eventually the hardware will become too aged to continue. Replacing hardware gets expensive, and there will be a need to budget for new equipment on a regular basis. The result is you must balance investing in hardware versus other areas that could grow your business
- Focus on growing your business. Managing existing IT infrastructure is time-consuming, at times unpredictable, and requires specialized personnel to manage it. With cloud computing, you enable a trusted cloud service provider to manage the complexities of security, upgrades, and maintenance freeing your team up to run the business.
- Leverage the latest technology. As the company grows, a traditional system can be difficult to expand as needed. You may not have the storage capacity, available users, or even new functionality and compliance that the latest release offers you. Moving to the cloud better enables the scalability that you will need to keep up with the network growth demands. A cloud-based system eliminates that problem by offering scalability in a flash.
