Vital Signs it’s Time for Your Business to Shift to Cloud Computing

Did you know that 93% of businesses are already using cloud technologies? We know that running a business means being, pretty much, a superhero. Well, once you have made the shift to the cloud, you will be guaranteed a trusty sidekick!

How do you know if cloud computing is the right move forward for you? We have put together some vital signs for you, as well as their fixes. If your business is struggling with any, or all, of the vital signs below, it’s time to make the shift!


Vital Sign: You keep running out of storage space.

The Fix: When you make the shift to the cloud, it becomes easy to upgrade, or downgrade, your storage space, to suit your needs.


Vital Sign: You lose data.

The Fix: Losing important data can set you back months, but, once you are working in the cloud, your precious work is safe. Not even a software crash or accidental delete (eek!) will erase your data from the cloud.


Vital Sign: Security and software updates are low on your list of priorities.

The Fix: We get it. There’s so much else to do! When you are working in the cloud, though, it gets done automatically. No more stress!


Vital Sign: Money is spent on hardware maintenance.

The Fix: With your work in the cloud, hardware will not be as important. Have a PC? Have a mobile device? Have access to the internet? Then you are good to go!

With the vast majority of businesses already in the cloud, one of the best ways to keep current, stay on top of things and have access to the latest technologies is to join this exciting and growing space. The time has never been more right. Access to the internet and the amazing capabilities of mobile devices means that your future is literally at your fingertips.
