– Deney Dentel, CEO at Nordisk Systems, says:
Cloud computing is a high-tech solution that is ideal for large companies who need access to their data from multiple locations around the globe. That doesn’t meant that it isn’t suitable for small businesses as well. In fact, the attributes of cloud computing that make it perfect for large companies also have benefits for small businesses.
Innovation and Scalability
These are probably the two attributes that make cloud computing so successful. Coincidently, it’s also the two most important aspects that a small business must embrace. Cloud computing is an innovation that has changed the way that people store and access their data.
In order for a small business to evolve into something larger, it needs to be easily scalable. Investing in a cloud computing solution early insures that when it comes time to expand, your data systems is one less thing to worry about. Cloud computing can scale as fast as you need. This saves you money in the crucial first years of your business when funds are tight, while offering a service that can expand to serve your business, no matter how fast it grows.
Small business owners are always on the go. Having access to all of your crucial data while away from your computer can increase your efficiency and save you money. No more trips back to the office between meetings or to retrieve a different file. You have access to it all, wherever you need to be.
When it comes time to expand your business and hire employees, your cloud computing service can easily be expanded to allow access to employees.
Growth of a business can be unpredictable. Having a cloud computing service that can expand and contract with your business is a valuable asset. Having a service with an amount of storage that can expand almost instantly to whatever amount your need is better. You can forget about complicated IT infrastructure and focus on growing your business as fast as you can. Your cloud computing service will keep up.
Some of the world’s largest companies trust their data to cloud computing providers. They are confident the security features of a cloud computing network offer the protection they need. All of these features are available to small businesses as well. Your data is just as critical. You need to make sure it’s protected and backed up. Cloud computing offers both features, as well as protection from physical and digital intrusion.
Don’t make the mistake of assuming that cloud computing is just for big companies. Any small business that deals with data will find many benefits in cloud computing technology.
