As more and more businesses turn to the cloud, the financial benefits are often heralded as a key reason for the move. Another important driver is the efficiency and security found in cloud solutions. A third reason is not directly tied to the profitability or growth of an organisation but is just as important: the impact cloud computing can have on an organisation’s carbon footprint.
While there are many benefits of cloud computing for businesses, perhaps the most obvious benefit is that it can help to reduce costs. Businesses no longer need to invest in their own physical infrastructure, as they can use the infrastructure of the cloud provider. With cloud computing, you can reduce IT costs while still getting all the functionality you need. For example, you can use cloud-based software instead of expensive on-premise software. This can save a lot of money, particularly in terms of energy costs. You can also take advantage of pay-as-you-go pricing models to save money on your IT infrastructure costs. In addition, cloud computing can help you improve your operational efficiency and scale your business more easily. All of these factors can lead to increased profitability for your business.
Efficient and Secure
Another benefit of cloud computing is that it can help businesses to be more efficient and effective. With cloud-based applications, businesses can access the latest software versions and receive regular updates. This means that employees always have the most up-to-date tools, which can boost productivity. Additionally, cloud computing can make it easier for employees to collaborate on projects, as they can share files and work on them in real time. With bespoke technology services such as those offered by Rowanwood, your organisation will find value-adding solutions that address your unique needs. Working in the cloud also provides a greater level of security.
Remember the energy savings mentioned earlier? Cloud computing can help businesses to reduce their carbon footprint. By using the infrastructure of a cloud provider, companies can avoid emitting greenhouse gases from their own physical infrastructure. Cloud computing uses less energy than traditional in-house data centers. Additionally, many cloud providers use renewable energy to power their servers, which further reduces emissions. Furthermore, Rowanwood’s Carbon Hub is purpose-built energy management solution software to help unlock your organisation’s potential access to Government funding.
