In its very core, the “cloud” enables users to store and access data anytime and anywhere from almost any device connected through the internet. Global research and advisory company Gartner predicts that by 2021, more than half of global enterprises already using cloud today will adopt an all-in cloud strategy. It also said that global spending on cloud services will reach $260 billion this year.
Both large and small companies can benefit from cloud services like data storage and backup, and mobile working among others. Small business owners especially can take advantage of cloud services to make their operations more efficient while cutting costs and scaling resources at the same time.
To effectively integrate these in your operations, you will need a team of cloud management experts dedicated to oversee various cloud functions in your business. While you can have your IT team take on this role, outsourcing your own dedicated cloud management team is more advantageous for the following reasons:
With the implementation of cloud-based services in your company, it is important to train your cloud management team so that you can optimize the use of the cloud’s capabilities. Training staff can cause your company a lot of money and if you plan on hiring a full in-house team, acquisition can also be pricey and sometimes unnecessary especially for smaller businesses.
When you outsource, however, you can cut on these costs without sacrificing the quality of service. You guarantee that your team will manage your cloud services expertly while you focus on bringing clients in and keeping them satisfied.
Since cloud services are wholly dependent on the internet, they are more prone to cyber attacks, and as technology advances, new and more sophisticated malware that are more difficult to defend against are also developed. Your dedicated team of cloud management experts has extensive knowledge about these looming cybersecurity threats and will know how to defend and protect your data from them, easing the burden from your IT team.
Another great thing that cloud management experts can do for you is to make sure that your company adheres to data regulations and privacy laws. This is especially necessary for businesses that handle sensitive and personal data such as online retailers, healthcare provides, and financial institutions.
But a team of cloud management experts can monitor public cloud configurations with regulatory standards, your company is assured not only of maintaining compliance but of upholding the best practices for data security as well.
Backups and Disaster Recovery
Technical issues like loss of data or applications, which can be detrimental to the entire business, is one of the cons of cloud services. However, don’t let this discourage you from adapting this technology in your operations since you can always routinely perform data backup and have recovery options to save data once disaster strikes with the help of your cloud management team.
Expert Support and Knowledge
The way cloud services work may sound simple, but navigating the public cloud sphere and other interweaving elements is not an easy task. This is why outsourcing knowledgeable and highly skilled cloud management experts is something you should really consider as they have insight into the public cloud market, an in-depth understanding of vendors and how they operate, and familiarity with the latest trends and services that can help in the successful and seamless implementation of cloud in your business.
All in all, outsourcing your cloud management team allows owners to focus more on what they do best for the company and reach your business goals.
