How Cloud Managed Services Can Propel Your Business: 8 Key Benefits

by Erik Briceno

In today’s competitive business environment, the ability to adapt to evolving technology can be the difference between success and failure. That’s particularly true when it comes to leveraging cloud solutions for your IT needs.

Forward-thinking leaders recognize that cloud computing lets you address business pain points, resulting in improved productivity combined with managed costs. Your team can work faster and smarter with increased employee productivity and lower overhead costs.

A cloud managed services provider can deliver software over the internet for your business, eliminating the need for you to install and run these applications on your local devices. That has the added benefit of simplifying your maintenance and support.

Research continues to show that cloud computing is the “backbone of today’s IT operations” and the enabler for the tomorrow’s innovations, according to the technology association CompTIA.

CompTIA surveyed more than 500 businesses and found that 91 percent of firms are using cloud computing in some form. Six in 10 companies have more than 40 percent of their IT architecture in the cloud. And an amazing 81 percent of companies say the cloud has enhanced their efforts around automation.

“Cloud shift is not just about the cloud. As organizations pursue new IT architectures and operating philosophies, they become prepared for new opportunities in digital business, including next-generation IT solutions such as the Internet of Things (IoT),” said Ed Anderson, research vice president for Gartner. “Organizations embracing dynamic, cloud-based operating models position themselves for cost optimization and increased competitiveness.
