Everyone is talking about the cloud…
“The cloud” seems to be a buzzword at the moment; but what does it really mean, and how is it benefiting companies? In the simplest terms, cloud computing means storing, processing or accessing data remotely through the internet instead of your computer’s hard drive.
How does it benefit an organisation?
Whether it’s a small company, a medium enterprise or a global business, most organisations can benefit from the cloud. In the past, companies would have to build, manage and maintain a large estate of infrastructure. Utilising these services via the cloud often means that costly upfront investments no longer have to be made. There are other benefits as well, such as pooling processing power, quickly scaling up and down, and flexibility with regards to access.
Furthermore, cloud computing can improve collaboration efficiency as it enables you to communicate and share content outside of traditional methods, and can enable you to keep up to date with the latest version of a software without costly upgrade projects.
How rapid is the change?
More and more organisations are moving services and applications into the cloud; it’s happening now, and it’s happening quickly.
What are the challenges faced by the industry?
Security is one of the main challenges faced by the industry. Whether you have a private, public or hybrid cloud, confidential data and information will reside outside of the company’s firewall, which can be difficult to adapt.
The other main challenge is securing the right talent to help guide and move organisations into the cloud. Cloud computing is rapidly evolving, and the availability of good talent is struggling to keep up.
