Cloud Computing Works to Enhance Profitability

Cloud computing is not just a business technology buzzword. Cloud computing works. The power of the cloud is helping businesses of all sizes increase their productivity and profitability. Maybe you are ready to transition your business to the cloud but aren’t sure about how cloud computing works or how it can benefit your business. Below, we’ll define what cloud computing is and how it can improve your business.

What is Cloud Computing?

Cloud computing is the sharing of resources, software, and information via the internet. Rather than buy a server to store at your physical location and installing software on it, you subscribe to a cloud computing provider’s service to use their hardware and software.

How Cloud Computing Works to Help Your Business

As a small business owner, owning you own IT servers and systems is not financially feasible. Thanks to cloud computing, you can have access to the same IT services that larger companies do, at a more affordable price. Not only do you save money by not having to invest in hardware and software, you also get the peace of mind of having your company data backed up on a regular basis.

With traditional IT management, servers are on-site, which make your company data vulnerable to disasters such as fire, floods, or other natural disasters. With cloud computing, your service provider can create a backup and disaster recovery plan that secures your company’s data.

Tools Your Business Can Use

There are some great cloud computing tools that your business can take advantage of. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) enables you to use business productivity software such as Microsoft Office, accounting software, and payroll management programs. SaaS tools save you money by not having to buy your own copies of licensed software.
