Blog | Four reasons everyone is moving to the cloud

Thursday, January 25th, 2018

Sooner or later, we’re all going to be using hosted desktops – it’s just a question of when, not if, for most companies. We’ve found that there are four main reasons to switch from an old IT infrastructure to cloud migration:

The need for a competitive edge

Businesses need their IT to be as agile as their workforce. It should help, not hinder a business. IT should work in conjunction with your staff. A hosted desktop will allow a business to operate without time restrictions because they’re always accessible. This means you’re always on your game no matter where you are. You can get ahead of your competitors by improving your IT setup and adopting the cloud because you have total access to your files whenever and wherever you need them.

Accurate and more predictable IT spends

Refreshing hardware every three to five years puts a strain on your IT budget. Thousands of pounds are thrown around to buy in the newest IT equipment, knowing fine well they will have to spend the same amount or more to replace it again. By hosting your data, files, emails and applications in our cloud, you can access them on any device. In short, you can stop spending money on new equipment every few years and save yourself the hassle of manually transferring documents over.

Increase employee productivity & efficiency

Ever had to wait for someone to be in the office for them to send over documents you need urgently? In a modern world, work is a 24/7/365 operation and if tasks are critical, you should give your employees a fighting chance. By opting for a cloud setup with Atlas Cloud, your staff can work from absolutely anywhere with an internet connection, on whatever device they like.

Improve security & stay compliant

Atlas Cloud’s continuous dedication to staying compliant with ISO accreditations means you don’t need to worry about lacking security standards. As a Managed Service Provider, we have a very high standard of IT security and compliance so our customers never need to worry about the integrity of their data. Each year, we have at least three separate audits to make sure we’re fully compliant – and this year with the GDPR taking effect, we know how important this is to everyone using our cloud platform. We’re even working on BS 10012 certification, which is specifically geared towards GDPR compliance.
