Whether you’re thinking about making the move to the cloud, or you’re all in and enjoying some cloud computing benefits, there are plenty of reasons why moving to the cloud really makes sense.
After all, the cloud has become one of the hottest trends in business today.
Our clients were able to seamlessly transition over to working fully remotely or hybridly and utilize the digital cloud workspace.
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 reasons why a digital cloud workspace solution is the right technology for your business to use to “evolve and thrive” in the new normal.
One of the main reasons for moving to the cloud is so that the software can be upgraded automatically. The automatic upgrade feature of the cloud is, in a sense, a consequence of there being no physical object called “the computer server” or “hard disk.”
When you have a physical thing, you have to find it before you can change it. With a virtual thing, there is no such problem. It can be changed from a distance and at any time.
Security and Privacy
With cloud computing, you no longer need to worry about the machine that stores your data getting stolen or compromised. Your information is safe, secure, and accessible from anywhere in the world, provided that you work with an experienced IT cloud provider. If you choose cloud services such as Microsoft Azure or another similar service with encryption features, you will still need to ensure that your data is transferred over a secure network connection.
The security benefits of cloud computing outweigh its perceived risks. On top of the services provided by Big Techs, your data enjoys greater resilience against cyberattacks. In recent years, cyberattacks have increased dramatically as hackers have become better equipped with advanced technologies to perform malicious attacks on businesses as well as individuals. In fact, according to recent estimates by Cyber Security Ventures, cybercrime will cost the global economy $6 trillion annually by 2021. With this increase in cybercrime, businesses are looking at ways to protect themselves against these attacks by using cloud networking services like Microsoft Azure which offers enhanced database security at all levels starting from authentication to access control and encryption.
Cloud environment helps you with compliance that is important to any business that handles customer data. A compliance policy must be implemented on a consistent basis, and also respected. When you choose to work with us, you can rest assured that your cloud environment will be governed by appropriate compliance policies such as EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and other regulations relevant to your business.
Simply put, a digital cloud workspace allows you and your employees access with one single password to everything one needs to securely do their job from anywhere, at any time and from any device.
With the digital cloud workspace model users can access their desktops and data from anywhere in the world, quickly and easily, with any internet-connected device. This opens new hiring opportunities.
No longer will we be enslaved by who is available locally. Cloud workspace adopters will be able to hire the right person regardless of where they live – “A” players in another city vs. a “B” player near your office. Give me the “A” player.
Valuable for Data Science
Cloud computing has made data more accessible. This is especially important to data science, where data analysts can leverage cloud infrastructure to create cutting edge machine learning systems for businesses for a fraction of the cost.
The promise of true utility computing is in front of us. Only pay for what you use and, more importantly, have available to you what you need when you need it. Eliminate the need for expensive hardware upgrades and in-house server rooms, thereby simplifying how much you are spending on IT with a single solution.
Generally, it is offered as a fixed fee monthly service that you can accurately budget for just like electricity, phone, and other utilities. The promise of true utility computing is in front of us. 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.

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.
“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” – George Bernard Shaw
