Whether your business engages with cloud-based software tools (think SaaS) or relies on a multi-cloud infrastructure for their critical data, there is no doubt that cloud solutions are transforming the way businesses work.
There are plenty of cloud solutions around to satisfy even the most demanding customer. Cloud-based software services are on-trend thanks to increasing developments in cloud security practices, advanced task automation and transformative business optimisation.
On the other hand, security-backed and flexible cloud infrastructures such as the public cloud or adaptable hybrid setups offer fertile hosting grounds for any enterprise.
Which solution offers sustainability, performance and the ideal path to transform your business more effectively in today’s competitive environment? Let’s look at the following:
Security is the main concern of enterprises moving to a cloud environment. Here your business has to consider cloud-based automated software practices such as daily data backup, timely software upgrades or smart security techniques like two-factor authentication and data encryption.
Ensure your cloud infrastructure setup adheres to built-in security protocols to prevent phishing and other malware attacks and enforces multi-tier encryption to handle and transfer data hosted on multiple servers and between third-party apps effortlessly.
Cloud computing offers an easier way of sharing and collaborating on projects, which also saves time and minimises storage space on devices. In other words, the cloud’s innovative approach makes the process flexible and mobile and leads to increased productivity and performance.
Consider the above points – collaboration, engagement, ease of access, multi-user functionality and storage capabilities – when looking at cloud-enabled applications or moving software operations to the cloud.
The cloud network infrastructure itself becomes non-negotiable when dealing with resource-intensive processes and extensive data storage capabilities – a hybrid cloud network may render better performance and adapt easier to your business requirements.

So, given the above, you may have a better idea of what to look for in a cloud solution, and you are ready to map out your cloud transformation journey. Look beyond system features and capabilities and conclude what is best for your business environment, keeping an eye open on your competitors’ strategy, and the latest security and industry developments.
Ensure your investment pays off by selecting a capable cloud vendor who can assist in configuring the infrastructure needed, migrating and securing data to the cloud, and implementing specific processes.
