Small Businesses Should Fully Leverage the Cloud for Software

Small Businesses Should Fully Leverage the Cloud for Software

In order to survive in today’s business world, your organization needs to be adaptable and flexible to new situations. You might have to take on the persona of a bookkeeper, HR, and other important roles for your business. You can add “IT decision maker” to that list, as 95% of small businesses in the US utilize some kind of computing to keep the business running smoothly.

Your Technology is a Powerful Asset

The right technology can go a long way toward helping your company flourish. However, technology is rarely created with the small business in mind. It’s much more lucrative to target large enterprises, after all. Many applications are simply too large and too powerful in what they can do to be affordable, or even practical, for small businesses.

That said, you can invest in the right tools to make your software infrastructure and its costs much more affordable and predictable. It only takes two simple steps.

Conduct a Software Audit

First, you’ll need to perform a comprehensive audit of your technology infrastructure to determine what your baseline is for your tools. This might include the costs you pay for them, so be on the lookout for opportunities to put them in the cloud and save money that way. You can discover new opportunities to save capital and revamp your operations through this full software audit. You can then invest in the right solutions that will drive growth for your business.

Implement the Right Tools

With the right software, your business can thrive. Cloud computing gives your business access to reliable and affordable software solutions that your company might not have otherwise had the opportunity to leverage in the past. You won’t have to pay for full licenses, and you won’t have to host them on your own infrastructure (unless that’s something you are up for—hosting on your own cloud server). There is usually a solid cloud-based option for your company’s software needs.

The big difference is in the cloud-hosted software license (also known as Software as a Service, or SaaS), which is generally available for a single software license that you can host in a secure data center, either on-site or in the cloud through the provider. This makes accessing resources a breeze in comparison. No more spending exorbitant amounts of money on expensive hosting hardware for your software needs.

Cloud computing offers businesses even better tools and the flexibility to implement them at their discretion. You can implement solutions like data processing, storage, productivity software, communications, and even AI, all to address your business’ specific needs, and all with a high-speed Internet connection.
