5 reasons why businesses should implement Cloud during the pandemic

The unexpected COVID-19 epidemic has forced numerous businesses to immediately change human resources and switch to the work-from-home model. All business processes were also turned online almost instantly.

However, during this challenging period that has damaged the global economy, many business firms remain and even grow stronger than ever with the help of advanced technology such as Cloud computing (Cloud).

A study shows that, since remote work becomes a new trend, the Cloud market has dramatically advanced. Particularly, in 2018, the global Cloud application market reached $118.7 billion and is expected to reach $437.9 billion in 2026 – an impressive achievement.

Cloud computing is a breakthrough innovation, allowing businesses to accelerate business processes effectively and seamlessly.

Why should businesses promote Cloud applications during the pandemic?

“Cloud is the savior amid the use.”

In recent years, organizations and firms have reinforced new technology innovations, including Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data, and Blockchain. These technologies have enabled firms to operate more efficiently and save resources and expenses. However, they can only reach the stage of optimization in combination with the Cloud platform.

Therefore, as businesses utilize Cloud, the digital experiences will be instantly improved by deploying the most advanced technologies.

Here are why you should implement Cloud during the pandemic:

1. Seamless business performance, disaster recovery

Cloud can help to ensure seamless business performance. This is important since firms now must encounter new challenges, especially during COVID-19. Seamless business means that enterprises can maintain operations, even when employees are not working all in one place.

Additionally, enterprises need to deploy Cloud to maintain business in the event of unexpected situations like social distancing.

“Save data on Cloud now – ensure data accessibility in the future.”

This means storing data on Cloud now is equivalent to preparing data backup for an emergency. Emergency can by anything – storms, tornados, or simply electricity cuts. We can’t reduce the impact of natural disasters, but Cloud can help us reduce risks of data loss.

Data stored on Cloud servers are automatically backed up. Therefore, we can ensure data accessibility and normal business function regardless of disasters.

2. Agility and scalability

The pandemic generated obvious changes for businesses. We cannot predict business growth as firms are all influenced by a natural issue. As a result, firms tend to analyze allocated resources and necessary resources to maintain business activities.

Cloud technology can optimize performance under such circumstances. In particular, it is very flexible in identifying necessary resources depending on the business demands. For example, in the upcoming months, enterprises may experience a growth period, followed by fewer demanding conditions.

During the growth phase, enterprises need to create many user accounts and expand data storage for remote employees. These tasks can be completed by Cloud vendors and do not require firms to purchase additional hardware or implement new setups.

3. Collaboration and availability

The influence of the pandemic has led to short-term office closings while implying long-term consequences. More than a year into the pandemic, more and more people are working from home, and businesses may now shift to remote management.

Nevertheless, messaging tools and applications are not enough for remote management. For instance, accounting firms need to be able to contact customers to update information. In reality, this situation applies to all businesses that aim for seamless contact with customers and need better collaborative solutions.

Sharing files are now easier with Cloud. Enterprises can access the same file anywhere, at the same time. Hence, it is easier to manage communications among employees, helping to minimize working latency and simultaneously, limiting accessibility when needed.

4. Cyber security

Any business emphasizes security, and all risks can negatively impact business performance. Cyber-attacks have long been an enormous threat in the digital era, which is further problematic during the pandemic.

As enterprise data are on Cloud, service providers will ensure information security with many layers, providing the most secure platforms with the ability to identify and eliminate threats in real-time.

5. Reduced operating expenses

Each business has a budget, and to generate profits, firms must spend money to not exceed this budget. To accomplish this, firms must apply business solutions with reasonable costs.

As businesses set up infrastructure, they have to spend a large amount of money for implementation, management, and operation, which are much higher than the price that Cloud providers offer. In which, using Cloud is the same as using another person’s computer.

Cloud can help save lots of expenses. Enterprises can reduce costs of software, servers, and capital resources to hire IT experts to administer enterprise systems.

Consequently, Cloud is much less expensive than internal business processes. In addition, compared to Cloud, the maintenance jobs for infrastructure devices are difficult during the pandemic, which makes Cloud more beneficial than ever.

Cloud is the solution amid the pandemic

Cloud not only solves data security and disaster recovery problems but also helps enterprises to accelerate in the context of digitalization. Thus, implementing Cloud is and will be a right choice, especially amid the pandemic.
