What are Cloud Services?
The term Cloud Services covers a range of internet-based applications, such as servers, storage, databases, and software, which are typically hosted by a third party. Updates are automatically installed, and they allow for multiple users to access and edit data live.
Many organisations are now shifting their operations to cloud-based services from traditional, locally-stored data solutions, with technology research firm Gartner predict that more than 85% of organisations will adopt a cloud-first principle by 2025.
What are the benefits?
Just some of the benefits of Cloud Services include:
- Scalability: Cloud Services can grow with your company, either by increasing the number of users or enhancing the number of features of an application.
- Flexibility: Cloud Services can be used flexibly, as and when your company needs them. They are typically more customisable than traditional hardware applications.
- Speed: Cloud Services feature advanced algorithms to keep your service running smoothly regardless of web traffic.
- Security: Cloud Services are required to use the latest security measures due to the volume of data they process.
How could they help you?
Cloud Services could help to transform your business operations. If you have several members of your team, or spend a lot of time out and about, Cloud Services will ensure that you always have access to the latest and most relevant set of data.
