What makes a business move to the cloud?

We often find that there is a significant change that puts pressure on the company’s IT infrastructure that makes them search for a solution like ours. Try to evaluate your existing IT infrastructure against these points and plan your next move.

Security standards

We’ve previously highlighted that it’s not only SMEs that can be affected by ransomware and malware infections – it happened to the NHS, proving large organisations are at risk too. As a Managed Service Provider, we follow ISO 27001 standards and generic security standards across the business. This means all of our clients are protected by them. This doesn’t mean, however, that they can’t set their own standards. Through Mimecast’s security software, businesses can run checks internally on email attachments to make sure confidential data isn’t sent to external parties. This service is provided as an add-on from ourselves should you require it.

Moving office

An office move is a perfect time to adopt a cloud computing IT infrastructure. Effectively, you can move out with the old and bring the new in. For instance, get rid of old monitors with slow CPUs and replace them a BYOD strategy. Instantly, you have less to move and become more flexible. It’s a simple but effective change because you’ve eliminated the need for any more large capital expense and saved yourselves money – it also means you don’t need as big an office if workers who aren’t required in the office daily can work from home.

If you have multiple offices, you can integrate all files and applications into one network for improved collaboration and better communication.

Adapting to the modern working world

Workers prefer to be agile and find solutions that work for them. This could mean working on-the-go, from home or out of business hours if it affects their productivity in a positive manner. In the end, businesses should be forward-thinking and need to adapt to a modern world otherwise they’ll be left behind while they hold onto archaic operations. Remote working makes the recruitment process an easier task because you aren’t confined to the four walls of an office. With Atlas Cloud’s solution, you’ll start to experience the advantages of a real modern-day company.
