Business Cloud Computing is a Perk for Business

Business cloud computing

The company adopted the cloud for reasons. Enterprises cite operational cost savings and faster access to IT resources as the biggest perks of the public cloud. But what about the business value of cloud computing? 

As cloud adoption matures, organizations continue the shift from just using the cloud as a piece of technology or infrastructure to something that can create a competitive business edge. Early on in the cloud market, this trend was mostly limited to major companies, such as Uber, Airbnb, and Netflix — all of which used cloud computing to their strategic advantage. Now, companies of all sizes are following in their footsteps. 

Cloud as the basis for speed : 

Hess, an energy company that has been around for nearly 100 years, has an IT mix of packaged and custom-built applications, which is relatively standard for a business of its maturity level and size. The company is relatively unique, however, in that it chose to adopt cloud, not for saved operational dollars, but flexibility and speed. In the cloud, Hess, which chose AWS as its provider, found it could quickly get servers into production, as well as tear them down and start again, as needed. For example, it now can install SQL Server and build virtual appliances without going through lengthy hardware and software procurement cycles. 

It’s one thing to say you’ve disrupted your market, but it’s another to prove it to investors or a board of directors. As a result, Hess reduced development and deployment time by half in most instances, which provided value on the business side of the house as well. For example, this enabled Hess to transition ownership of the company more efficiently, as well as accelerate its ability to deliver new capabilities to customers via the cloud. While Hess is an excellent example of how an organization can tap into the business value of cloud computing, it is still a large company. So, what about some of the small or midsize firms out there? 

Security : 

Often unequipped with cybersecurity tools and expertise, there is a common misconception among smaller businesses that data security within their four walls. It couldn’t be further from the truth: when the on-site data servers get hacked, or a hard drive goes missing, all data compromised. While SMEs would still need to play their part in data security, cloud service providers have extra measures in place to keep data secure. 

Cloud services much more difficult (though not impossible) for hackers to crack. And can stave off the risk of phishing and malware, which can bring any business, of any scale, to its knees. According to Sid Nag, research vice president at Gartner, cloud services are continually “shaking up the industry.”There are no vendors we know of today whose business and revenue growth influenced by cloud adoption. By 2022, the cloud service industry worth US$331.2 billion, and what we see now is only the beginning.”For small businesses delaying the inevitable, there’s never been a better time to leap.
