Cloud Computing Solutions
and Benefits

TechBrain Cloud: More than just backing up your data

Cloud computing is now synonymous with the future of software. You rarely hear anyone discourage cloud technology, and in fact it is very easy to see why there is so much positivity in tech circles around “the cloud” as a solution for businesses.

Cloud computing refers to software that is hosted on remote servers and is accessed through an internet connection from your location. Using the cloud, your staff are able to access your entire business from anywhere from their desks to their sofas, whilst data is hosted on servers around the world.

Finding the right cloud computing solution can dramatically improve efficiency as well as cash flow, whilst also offering a host of other benefits. Some of the reasons that the TechBrain Perth team encourages appropriate clients to seek a cloud computing solution are:

Flexibility

Businesses change size continuously and as a result have fluctuating bandwidth demands. Operational agility, and in particular, scalable technology infrastructure via cloud computing solutions are critical in ensuring businesses can quickly and easily meet their needs without draining cash.

Disaster recovery

Creating adequate disaster recovery protocols has historically been expensive, making it out of reach for many SMEs. Cloud services make it easy for SMEs to implement cloud-based backup and recovery solutions. Such an approach avoids significant up-front investment and enables the business to leverage third party expertise.

Automatic software updates

Offsite servers are managed by suppliers who take full responsibility for regular software and security updates, taking the time and frustration out of managing the process internally.

Minimal capital expenditure

Finding the right cloud computing solution removes the significant cost of hardware. The monthly pay-as-you-go provides flexibility and smoothes out cash flow.

Increased collaboration

Cloud-based workflow and file sharing apps mean that your team can access, amend and share documents from any location at any time. This dramatically increases collaboration, resulting in greater productivity.

Ability to work from anywhere

Provided you have internet connectivity, cloud-based solutions allow you to work from any location. Thanks to mobile apps, you can work using any device.

Enhanced document control

Prior to cloud computing solutions, any document that was amended needed to be sent back and forth between the various groups working on it, with tight control over the master document. A cloud computing solution removes that hurdle by allowing everyone to collaborate on the one document which is stored in a central location.

Security

The risk to a business from staff losing laptops is significant, particularly when data is stored locally. That risk can be reduced significantly by staff saving data to the cloud, so that if they do lose their laptop, they can still access the data.

Competitiveness

Never before have SMEs been able to cost-effectively compete with large corporates when it comes to technology. Pay-as-you-go services and cloud applications enable David to take on Goliath whilst remaining lean.

Environmentally friendly

Businesses change size continuously and as a result have fluctuating bandwidth demands. Operational agility, and in particular, scalable technology infrastructure via cloud computing solutions are critical in ensuring businesses can quickly and easily meet their needs without draining cash.

Flexibility

Scaling your technology needs on the cloud means that you only use the energy your business need, meaning that you will not be leaving an over-sized carbon footprint.

Hopefully the above information will help you decide on whether cloud computing can benefit you. If you have any questions or need a little more guidance, we’re more than happy to chat with you in more detail.
