Did you know? Cloud computing has been around for a lot longer than the marketers have labelled it ‘the cloud?’(see here)
In 2002 Cymax was providing what is now called cloud computing services to Brisbane businesses and organisations across Australia. It is really only now that internet consumer connections, business private networks and software has matured enough for it to be viable. Most of this technology has been available to major corporations under the (more technical) terminology for a lot longer. Nevertheless the technology is mature and there are vast benefits to an organisation for partnering with cloud computing providers.
Cloud Computing solutions from Cymax can help your organisation:
Cloud computing can provide your business with great economies of scale often only seen in enterprise systems and infrastructure.
No longer are you restricted to hiring from your region. Your staff can access the cloud from anywhere they have an internet connection – worldwide. This opens your business to the opportunity of a global talent pool.
Get more work done. Increase staff efficiency. With integrated and centralised systems, cloud solutions can increase your organisation’s overall efficiency. Increase your capacity and produce greater results and productivity with the same number of staff.
Cloud Computing removes the need for excessive upfront capital investment allowing you to better leverage your capital in other areas of your business;
With integrated and centralised systems comes better reporting. Achieve near real time reporting with analytics software. By enabling your staff to input their data into centralised systems, your organisation is better equipped to report (and make business decisions) on up to the second information that historically took weeks to compile.
If your organisation regularly scales up for short-medium term projects and scales back to a core team, cloud computing provides greater enablement by only paying for the software licenses used for the months those extra staff are using the cloud.
With streamlined processes and cloud computing it takes fewer people to do more work. You also have the added benefit with a minimal (or no) learning curve on hardware and software.
Stretch and grow without the need to buy expensive software licenses or programs.
You can adjust the direction of your business without serious HR or financial challenges. This also goes for the software provided as part of the cloud solution.
Other benefits of Cloud Computing include:
Reduction of operating costs
✓ Reduced energy consumption
✓ Less expensive in terms of internal staff to manage the remainder of your systems
✓ Less cost and complexity in terms of doing both routine computing tasks and tasks that require more horsepower;
✓ Reduces your business’s carbon footprint
✓ Potentially reduce support and maintenance costs through transitioning legacy systems to new systems
✓ Your organisation can save time and reduce set-up. Due to the nature of cloud computing you no longer have to wait for new equipment to arrive before setup making. The install process of the software within the cloud is also reduced making it functionally faster than traditional server infrastructure.
✓ Your investment to transition to Cloud Computing requires very little in terms of hardware or software within your office.
✓ Designed from the bottom up for maximum network performance, delivering increased application availability than conventional IT infrastructure
✓ Greater flexibility and availability of shared information within your organisation
✓ Enables collaboration for your business from anywhere in the world
✓ With cloud solutions, the potential for failure is reduced. The failure of one node of a system in a cloud environment will have no impact on overall information availability and reducing the risk of perceivable downtime to your business and your staff.
✓ You can also use your office space more efficiently. That floor space used for your servers can now be used to increase your staff levels to grow your business, because cloud computing reduces the need for you to have a dedicated server room.
✓ Cloud servers are located in a commercial grade datacentre with backup generators and fire suppressant, giving you increased physical security. In some cases this is an overlooked yet substantial component of meeting your compliance requirements.
