What do you need to know before migrating your business to the cloud? Download our eBook


More and more businesses are streamlining their operations and reducing costs by turning to cloud computing. Here are some of the benefits of moving your business to the cloud and what you need to know before you start.  

The advantages of moving your business to the cloud are numerous. The cloud offers flexibility and scalability, which is perfect for SMBs and start-ups. It means the cloud resources can grow as the business grows, without the need to outlay capital expenditure for on-premises hardware. Speaking of which, in the cloud, your business can move IT expenses from capital expenditure to operating expenditure. For example, rather than having to outlay £10,000 every 5 years, your business could pay a monthly fee for the services being used on Azure, Amazon Web Services or Google Cloud Platform.

Being in the cloud also improves a business’s security posture, with cloud services offering many security features, including alerts that can be monitored from one place. Furthermore, many businesses find that moving to the cloud improves user experience, supporting productivity.

Of course, migrating your business to the cloud is not without its challenges. It’s important to carefully plan your migration and ensure that you have the necessary resources and expertise to manage your cloud environment effectively. Security, cost, legacy apps, downtime, vendor lock-in and technical knowledge are all challenges that businesses are required to both prepare for and overcome before they commit to the cloud.
