Cloud Migration: Advantages of moving your business to the Cloud

When it comes to cloud infrastructure, there are four essential components to it, namely, computing, networking, storage, and User Interface (UI access to on-cloud resources). All of these collaborate together to form complex cloud solutions for enterprises. Basically, cloud services help organizations tackle the most challenging architecture, implementation, and operation requirements of their cloud-based applications, products, and platforms. They can opt for public, private or hybrid environments depending on their present & future imperatives, in terms of ease-of-adoption (or migration), security, scalability, and flexibility. 

There are Foundational Cloud Service (FCS) providers in the market who offer comprehensive enterprise solutions, catering to the diverse goals and needs of businesses. Their clients either go for a single on-demand service or a mix of customized services. Such FCS providers deliver a broad portfolio of computing, data, and app framework services that companies can rely upon to build innovative digital services. Leading FCS providers in the market include Amazon Web Services Inc. (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Alibaba Cloud, IBM Cloud, Tencent Cloud, Huawei Cloud, Oracle Cloud, Salesforce Cloud, Accenture Cloud, SAP Cloud Platform, and Cisco Cloud.

How moving to the cloud could prove beneficial to your business? 

Globally, most enterprises have already migrated some or all of their workloads to the cloud and moved their on-premises software to SaaS. Here are the top benefits the cloud can bring to your business after migration your business to cloud: 

Hassle-free & efficient deployment – Adopting a new and compatible on-demand cloud service is usually a fast process. Companies using legacy systems or multiple applications might need a bit more time to plan and execute their migration strategies. Still, the deployment would be far more time-efficient than other solutions. Simple mid-scale projects take about 2-4 months to migrate to cloud platforms/solutions. Complex projects can take anywhere between 6 months to 2 years to complete a migration. You can approach any FCS provider for end-to-end guidance and support with your cloud migration plans. 

Advanced data security and compliance – By adopting cloud infrastructure, your company can better prepare for cyberattacks and create more optimal security and compliance measures. 93% of businesses identify cloud security as the #1 concern and 94% of businesses report significant online security improvements after adopting the cloud. A lot of time data thefts are carried out by employees. So, it is prudent to store sensitive data offsite, with encrypted access. Migrating to the cloud will also help you meet Government compliance requirements more efficiently.

Collaboration. Running any business requires collaboration, especially ones having a large workforce. Cloud-based tools, services, and applications simplify team and inter-departmental co-ordinations. Some even provide online social spaces for employee engagement, communication, and connectivity. 

Disaster recovery. One of the key concerns any organization has is data recovery in cases of emergencies such as power outages, downtime, natural calamity, or massive system errors. Unforeseen events like these can cause your company: 

  • Monetary loss 
  • Make it susceptible to cyberattacks 
  • Restrain productivity 
  • Lead to a bad customer experience 
  • Destroy brand reputation 

These negative after-effects of disasters can be mitigated with quick data recovery. As per a RapidScale report, 20% of cloud users (and 9% of non-cloud users) could claim disaster recovery in less than 4 hours. So, your company can depend more on data recovery & backup solutions provided by cloud-based service providers. 

Automatic software updates – By migrating to cloud-based applications, you won’t have to wait and worry about regular system updates and installations. They are automatically refreshed and executed by the system. This not only frees up IT managers’ time for more important tasks but also relieves them of dispensable manual checks/interventions. Cloud adopters also require fewer outside IT consultations.

Quality control – The chances of data entry errors and reporting inconsistencies are there in any business. Migrating to a cloud-based system ensures all information, documentation, and communication history is securely stored in one place, and in a uniform format. When there is consistency in data collection or recording, it translates to more dependable reporting. Any and all data revisions, document versions, and report updates can be tracked and assigned to authorized employees. Such mechanisms help companies have better quality control of their information and eliminate incidences of data dilution to a large extent. 

Reduced latency. Latency challenges are complex. For example, recurring network latency problems can hinder business transactions or cause loading delays in web-based applications. It can get quite frustrating for you and your customers! There can be many reasons for latency, and all aspects must be explored properly to determine the cause. Is it due to the use of multiple intermediate routers, poor internet speed, high traffic, propagation delay, or something else? Your company can minimize instances of latency issues with your time-critical data and applications by moving to the right kind of cloud-based application or platform.
