6 Reasons Why You Should Move Your Business to the Cloud

Migrating your business to the Cloud can be a tough key decision for many executives, but the results prove to be worth it. If you’re unfamiliar with the cloud, it’s a network of remote servers that hold your data on the Internet instead of through physical hardware and computers. In today’s digital landscape, the cloud is a must in order to stay ahead of the curve, and it’s not just for large enterprises. Small businesses can benefit a lot too, and there’s many resources out there to make it affordable (check out this list of some of the best services and providers for your software development needs). The cloud offers tons of advantages, but here are the six biggest reasons why you should consider making the big move.

1) Reduced IT costs

One might assume that moving to the cloud will be a big expense, but in reality you’re actually saving a lot of money especially in the long run. The cloud eliminates the need for expensive hardware or data centers, and of course their maintenance. In addition, you’ll see a huge reduction in monthly energy costs when you get rid of servers.

2) Accessible

A huge advantage of the cloud is that you can work from any location and from any device. Whether you’re in the office, home, or on a flight, you can access your information from anywhere and any device through your authenticated login. All you need is a secure internet connection and you’re good to go.

6 Reasons Why You Should Move Your Business to the Cloud

3) Improved team collaboration and productivity

The cloud boosts team collaboration and productivity, allowing you to get more done in less time. Your team can share data and updates in real time on a global scale. The cloud also gives your executives a 360 degree view of your business by collecting, analyzing, and leveraging your data across all departments.

4) Scalability

Growth can happen when you least expect it. That’s why another huge bonus of the cloud is that you can upgrade your data storage at any time. As your company continues to grow, you’ll be more than prepared to scale at any moment without incurring the high costs of adding new servers.

5) Enhanced data security

The cloud gives you the opportunity to enjoy complete control over access to your data, allowing you to set up different levels of access to your team members. It also offers a strong cybersecurity system, making it extremely difficult for hackers to breach in. You can also delete confidential information from any device through the cloud.

6) Backup & disaster recovery

Unfortunately in life, accidents tend to happen, but with the cloud you’ll always be safer than sorry. The great thing about the cloud is that in any situation, your data will never be lost. If a natural disaster or fire occurs, you won’t be out of business because your business is in the cloud. With regular backups, all your data and information stays safe and sound.

What people are saying

Five starts

Five stars on customer satisfaction and Salesforce appexchange ratings.

"Excellent Consultants. During the training I received by the SkyPlanner team, I was lucky to better understand the powerful capabilities of Salesforce.com. They were very effective, straight-to-the-point, and with a solid knowledge of the CRM and the Force.com platform. Definitively they showed us how to streamline the business process within our company. Great group of people spreading valuable knowledge to make businesses grow. I highly recommend them."

Ramiro Allen — Chief Software Engineer @ TurboPay Limited

"Excellent partner! We have been working with SkyPlanner for almost one year now. It has been a pleasure working with their team. If it wasn't for them we would have not been able to go-live with our platform when we did. They understood our needs and were not only able to execute but guide us in our decisions. We continue using them for our on-going projects. They have a deep understanding of the overall platform. Their team is always ready, willing and able to help."

Ivan de Moya — VP Innovation Technology @ SunStreet

"SkyPlanner was professional, creative, reliable and extremely accommodating. From the onset of the project, it was clear that we had found the right partner. Our project was complex and every time we hit a roadblock, SkyPlanner was helpful in identifying and implementing a solution. Jorge Fernandez [SkyPlanner's Co-Founder & Managing Director] was our primary contact and we cannot say enough about what an asset he was in bringing our project to resolution."

Ryan Borcherds — Marketing @ Deliver Lean

"On time, on budget, great quality on every project. Whenever I get asked to recommend a Salesforce.com partner, I do not hesitate on my reply: Go with SkyPlanner. I had the privilege to have worked with many teams over the years, none have brought to the table the enthusiasm the SkyPlanner team has. This combined with their professionalism and expertise are the reasons I ONLY recommend one partner: SkyPlanner. In every project (and we have done many) they have consistently delivered on time and on budget with significantly superior quality."

Juan Meza — Strategic Business Development Director @ Sony Electronics Inc.

"Outstanding Service! Happy to have them as our partner! SkyPlanner is by far the most experienced and reliable Salesforce partner. We almost gave up on Salesforce thanks to our previous partner, fortunately we found SkyPlanner and they came to the rescue! They took their time to understand our needs and complexity of our organization. Highly talented, professional and dedicated team. I cannot stress enough how happy we are to have them as our partner and we look forward to continue building our relationship."

Nolan Pereira — Project Manager @ BLU Products
