Cloud Computing : Pourquoi l'adopter ?

April 2014 | Servcorp

Why cloud attracts companies ? Because cloud computing increases performance , improves companies funds and offers many other benefits ...

1 . Cloud Flexibility

The minute a company needs more bandwidth than usual, a cloud service can instantly respond to his request , thanks to the large remote servers  capacity. In fact , this flexibility is so crucial that " the ability to respond quickly to the needs of the company" was one of the main reasons for their migration to the cloud .


2 . Data recovery

When companies begin to rely on cloud services , they do not need complex data recovery programs . The cloud providers are responsible for most of these tasks and they are faster. companies that use cloud unable to resolve their problems in 2.1 hours on average , almost four times faster than companies who do not use (8 hours).


3 . Automatic software update

In 2010 , British companies have dedicated 18 working days per month to manage the only on-site security . Instead, the cloud providers are responsible for maintaining the server , including security updates , allowing customers to allocate time and resources saved to more strategic tasks.


4 . Lack of investment costs


The cloud services are generally provided on a model of " pay per use " . They do not generate any capital costs. Moreover, as the cloud services are much faster to deploy, enterprises incur minimal startup costs and predictable operating costs over the long term .


5 . Increased collaboration

Cloud computing improves collaboration by allowing all employees , wherever they are , to synchronize their actions and work on documents simultaneously and shared applications. They can also monitor their colleagues and records to receive critical updates in real time.


6 . Control of Documents

According to a study , " 73% of business users working with collaborators from different time zones and different regions at least once a month."

If a company does not use the cloud , employees must constantly refer their files by e -mail . Thus, only one person can work on a file at a time and the same document can exist under different names and formats.

Cloud computing keeps all files in a central location and everyone works from a central copy . Employees can even use instant messaging when making changes. The whole process enhances collaboration , increasing efficiency and improving the financial performance of a company.


7 . competitiveness

With cloud , SMEs have access to technologies used by multinationals. It allows small businesses to act more quickly than their competitors or having a larger scale. A study on the recovery of data found that companies that do not use the cloud had to rely on tape backup methods and complicated procedures to recover their data ... So slow and laborious exercises which users of cloud computing does not have to worry .


8 . Environmental

Companies that use cloud computing using only the space they need on the server , which reduces their carbon footprint. The use of cloud computing involves a 30% reduction in energy consumption and carbon emissions compared to on-premises servers . Again, these are SMEs and SMIs that fare better game : for small businesses , lower energy consumption and carbon emissions would be about 90%.


9. What are you waiting for?
