What Businesses Need to Know About Moving to the Cloud
Hi! My name is James and I’m an IT professional.
Cloud technology is a fairly new concept and still makes many companies concerned about moving their operations to the platform. If you’re interested in moving your business operations to the cloud, check out these myths about moving to the cloud before you begin your journey.
Myth 1) Keeping data on-premises is safer than in the cloud
The truth is, even if your company has a growing security team, businesses can rarely assemble a team large enough to uncover and protect against the hundreds of possible alerts that come through each day. Switching to a cloud solution though will extend your security team.
Myth 2) If your data moves to the cloud, your business will no longer have control over your technology
The fact of the matter is, when you move your business operations to the cloud, you still have total control over technology but your IT department won’t have to worry about constant updates and can focus more on responding quickly to customer needs.
Myth 3) Cloud migration is too much for your business to handle
When you start considering how to move your data to the cloud, it’s easy to see why some people think of it as too big a challenge for IT departments and staff to handle. The truth is though, with any cloud solution you implement, you’ll be provided with an array of tools to help your migration efforts be successful.
Myth 4) Corporate spies, cyberthieves, and governments will have access to your data if it is in the cloud
This is a top fear of the cloud among many businesses, but the fact is that this fear is unfounded. When you migrate to the cloud, your IT team manages access, sets up rights and restrictions, and provides smartphone access and options. Your company also remains the sole owner of the data and retains the rights, title, and interest in the data stored.
There are quite a few myths about moving business operations to the cloud but being able to separate fact from myth will allow you to seamlessly migrate all your processes to the cloud.
