Take advantage of cost-effective resource rightsizing.
If you're using on-premise servers, you know the challenges of trying to predict the capacity needs of your business before they come about. If your business is growing, or downsizing, the right number of servers, compute power, storage and capability needs to be put in place, ready for any changes. However, this can be unnecessarily expensive, because it’s impossible to predict and support your needs with 100% accuracy. Particularly when buying hardware means you have it for around five years to manage, maintain and run. You might have been overcautious and now you’ve paid over the odds for something you aren’t going to use to its full potential. Alternatively, you might be under resourced and struggle to support users during periods of high demand.
The cloud takes away the challenges around scalability your on-premise servers. The resources it offers (compute power, storage, etc.) are mapped against your business growth, so it scales to exactly what you need. You pay for what you use –not for expensive servers to constantly run at maximum capacity. This cost-effective method ensures you and your team have exactly what they need, when they need it.
Seasonal businesses can see huge cost savings and a boost to performance by adopting the cloud. How many times have you seen a website crash from being under-resourced at peak times? A failure like that can really cost you – the worst time to lose business is during your busiest periods, like Christmas.
Cloud-hosted business applications, like Microsoft Dynamics 365 (for customer engagement) and Microsoft Office 365 (for office productivity) can be scaled effortlessly based on need. No more predicting what you need to buy and committing to thousands of pounds of upfront investment. Scale up quickly and you don’t lose money. The cloud works on a subscription basis with predictable monthly fees to replace massive capital expenses.
