By driving digital disruption in the last decade, Cloud Computing has proved to be the backbone of technology. Whether its improving analytics or creating new opportunities based on customer demand, the sky is the limit with the cloud. Despite that, the companies struggle to harness its full power. This gap between aspiration and reality can be filled with the help of an integrated cloud solution supported by the skills to implement it. TopTech designs a suite of enterprise cloud solutions ranging from cloud migration to cloud management to cloud-native development for delivering business impact and executes the right cloud strategy to get the most out of the cloud.
There are three stages of cloud transformation i.e. Application, Network, and Security. The application comprises monitoring of data, content management, handling communication plus collaboration, and finance. Network transformation refers to breaking the legacy network model and not confining to the perimeter-based firewall of the corporate network being supported by Software-Defined Networking which helps in recognizing traffic destinations. Security transformation uses deployment of Zero-Trust networking along with moving legacy security to dynamic. Cloud transformation with the help of these transformations brings a pool of benefits to your IT infrastructure which is much needed especially in times like these where almost 80% of the workforce is required to work from home due to Covid-19. Here’s a list of benefits that cloud brings to you:
EFFICIENCY: The huge expenditure of purchasing and maintaining equipment is brought down with the help of cloud infrastructure. It minimizes the need to invest in hardware, utilities, facilities, or large data center for the growth of your business. It also cuts down your staff needs as all the cloud data center operations are handled by the cloud provider’s team. The costs are also reduced significantly because downtime is rarely experienced in cloud systems.
SCALABILITY: Every business has different needs depending on the number of employees, the amount of workload and so on. This is where cloud proves to be a great help as it enables companies to easily scale up or down their IT departments based on their business demands. In case there is an increase in demand, the cloud capacity can be easily increased without making extra investment in physical infrastructure. The scalability not only minimizes the risks associated with operation issues or maintenance but also provides high-performance resources at zero up-front investment making it the greatest advantage of the cloud.
MOBILITY: Gone are the days when corporate data could only be accessed within the company premises and on the company set-up. With allowing mobile access to this data via any device, cloud computing ensures no delay in your work. It is super helpful in times like these where the workers as well as your clients can stay up-to-date in any part of the world. Just a few clicks and your resources can be stored, retrieved, and processed from anywhere. The users get access to all the services 24/7 provided they are connected to the internet. Automated updates also help in saving time and reduce the IT team workloads tremendously.
DATA SECURITY: No matter whatever industry we talk about, security is a top priority for each one of them. The advanced security features guarantee the secured storage and handling of data. Implementation of baseline protections like authentication, encryption, and access control is done for the platforms as well as the data being processed. Enterprises can also supplement these protections with other security measures to tighten access to any kind of sensitive information stored in the cloud.
DISASTER RECOVERY: Another major concern after data security for every company happens to be disaster recovery. Cloud ensures no loss of data at all times even if some damage happens to the desktop or laptop or any device. Data stored in the cloud can be recovered in any kind of emergency scenario, be it a natural disaster or power outages. Not only that, but cloud infrastructure also proves to be a lifesaver when it comes to loss prevention. Relying on the traditional approach of saving data locally on devices can cause major issues in case there is any kind of malfunction like malware and virus or hardware deterioration. With cloud infrastructure, there’s no chance of losing any data if you upload everything to the cloud.
With an increase in cloud adoption every year, it is safe to say that enterprises have finally started to recognize the impact of cloud on their productivity, security, and revenue. So, don’t hesitate in making the right decision for your company which will lead you to an enhanced future.
