Cloud data management is a good idea for any enterprise, regardless of size. We have listed below its main benefits. If you can make use of any of these, it’s worth the investment.
Most, if not all cloud storage solutions offer security at a higher quality level than an on-premise solution. The risk of losing data due to hardware failure or device damage is significantly reduced. Plus, you’re dealing with a company that specializes in storing your data. Their focus on security is hence probably a lot stronger than yours.
A cloud storage solution lets you scale up, or down, as you need it to. You can add more storage, or register for a more powerful server, whenever you need it. If it’s only for one big project, feel free to scale down once you’re done with it. You’ll be saving a lot of money.
Govern access as necessary, by allowing your team members to access data regardless of where they are. You can also make sure nobody without authorization can get access to important data. Moreover, with a well-governed solution, you’re looking at higher data quality. This will help you keep data clean and consistent, and always up to date.
A cloud data management provider will make sure you’re always up to date with your services and capabilities. This includes updating any apps you’re using, which saves your IT team a lot of time. They won’t need to update everyone’s system individually anymore.
On top of this, you also get automated backups and a disaster recovery solution with your cloud storage. Regular backups are key, but they’re much better if you don’t have to worry about them because someone else is taking care of it. And if something goes wrong, there is a recent backup you can go back to and continue business as usual with minimal downtime.
If you’re a company that has committed its work ethic to keeping the environmental impact to a minimum (and you should be), moving your data to the cloud is a great way to do just that. You’ll be able to reduce your facilities carbon footprint, and it will be much easier to allow for telecommuting within your teams.
