In the space of a generation, the way we work has changed. And if your industry hasn’t yet seen a shift, you can be sure it soon will. Today, cloud computing is creating more customer-focused business models. With organisations that embrace the cloud more agile, fast-to-market and leaner than ever before.
But how can you make the most of your cloud investment?
Make sure your investment matches your needs
As with anything, investing in excess capacity could cost you money. So, when moving to the cloud you should start by making sure that the solution you choose matches your current needs rather than exceeds them. Of course, this is one of the most compelling reasons for moving to the cloud. Because, while with more traditional tech you would have had to invest in growth before it happened (in order to keep up), with the cloud you can simply scale up as you go. So you give your business a competitive advantage with cloud services that grow and evolve alongside you.
Adopt a joined-up approach
Cloud-based applications are capable of talking to one another. So, once you have established all your business needs make sure your apps are able to share data between all the relevant business functions. Today, having departments working in isolation is going to cost you time and money.
Think about your customers
As well as looking at how you can use the cloud to improve your internal operations, make sure you don’t forget about the benefits it can deliver to your customers. Today, even small improvements can have a significant impact on customer satisfaction levels and it has never been more important that you keep the lines of communication open. Find out more about how cloud computing can help you to keep customers happy.
You should also make sure that any customer applications work across platforms.
Think beyond software and apps
The cloud provides access to a huge range of software and apps. What’s more cloud-based hosted desktop services provide access to everything your employees need to do their jobs, on any device, even if they aren’t in the office. Switching to a cloud server is also helping companies to serve their customers better and run their operations more efficiently.
