5 Reasons to Move to Working in the Cloud
The pandemic hit, for many businesses it hit like a tidal wave. For our company it was all hands-on deck. Business continuity was the goal and implementing a functional and secure work-from-home business model was job one to keep our clients operational.
If this pandemic hit you like a tidal wave, interrupted your workflow and most importantly your revenue then please listen. Our clients were able to seamlessly transition over to working fully remotely and utilize the digital cloud workspace. I want you to consider the following.
The answer is moving your workers to a digital cloud workspace where employees can work remotely and access the necessary resources, they need to continue to operate any place and access files at any time.
The bottom line, Covid-19 is not just changing the direction of change, it appears to be changing the rate of us getting there.
A few examples of some of our clients:
One of our organizations had their employees work from home immediately and needed to access their data physically from their computers remotely. We set up VPN’s back to the office. They were set up so when they were home, they could access all the information from their homes. They had to access their work computers and access their office devices.
For one of our healthcare practices, we set up the capability for calls that continued to be received by staff from patients to set appointments even when the staff wasn’t in the office. Phones rang to mobile homes, at home, and at the office.
Another company we had them have files in the cloud. They could access documents, emails from any place at any time.
Every business’s decision to move to a digital workspace is personal. Overarching reasons include competitive edge, security, scalability, collaboration, compliance, disaster recovery, and mobility.
Here are five reasons why a digital cloud workspace solution is the right technology for your business to use to “evolve and thrive” in the new normal.
Currently, there are billions being spent on security. Digital cloud workspace providers are employing thousands of cybersecurity experts to keep data locked down and I have no doubt these professionally run data centers are more secure than your average server closet.
Whether users are in the legal, health care, hospitality, finance, or something else, all the major players have most all the major compliance requirements covered.

Only pay for what you use and more importantly, have available to you what you need when you need it. This should be exciting to all business owners.
5. Performance Benefits
The collaboration opportunity is amazing. It allows for video conferencing, document sharing, and general human engagement that works across geographies. Cloud done right can bring new ways to work for businesses who are willing to evolve and thrive in the new normal.
One of the best benefits of the cloud is that you can easily tailor to the needs of your knowledge workers. Some need simple compute power and access because they perform simple repetitive tasks and others need the IT equivalent of a Ferrari. To me, a digital cloud workspace solution eliminates the hassle of VPNs, overcomes slow application performance, easily maintains version control and it reduces high backup costs. Best of all it increases productivity and optimizes security and maintains compliancy.
Understanding all of this is a learning curve. You’ll want to hire an experienced digital cloud workspace service provider and certified Microsoft or AWS cloud service provider to help.
I know that our future is going to be more technology-driven than ever before, but this is not a shift in doing the same thing in a different way. People, not computers will still collaborate just differently. We will live more dynamically, fluidly and vibrantly as we play, parent and perform at work.
The cloud is here to stay because people want access to the information they need, when they need it, where they need it, anywhere, on any device without compromise.
