Cloud technology is catching up fast in the market, with major tech giants like Amazon, Google, Microsoft, IBM and even Alibaba now investing heavily in cloud market- “cloud” won’t be a jargon anymore in coming years. With increasing digitization, competition in market is like never before. Everybody wants to get their hands on to latest technologies or want to grow with help of such technologies – cloud computing being definitely one of it.
Livemint has reported that the cloud market is projected to grow by 54 percent from 2018 to 2020. With all such marketing hype around cloud computing, more and more business houses are getting aware of its computing power but not exactly they understand how it can help their specific domain of business due to lack of expertise and right resources.
Large organizations have resources of their own or get cloud infrastructure outsourced from big cloud service providers, but is not the case with SMEs who have their own resource crunch and budgetary constraints.
Cloud Infrastructure and SMEs
Many times moving into cloud doesn’t work for you as you anticipated in terms of operational flexibility, scalability , reduction of cost or may be technical capabilities, this is where outsourcing your cloud infra needs a managed cloud service provider. Below are few other areas where it benefits small and medium enterprises:
Concentrate on your core business: Its lets you manage your core business model and leaves all the cloud infrastructure worries to managed service providers. Also helps your organization with optimized operations by saving time, cost which can be diverted to automation and scaling up business.
Predictable billing: Managed service providers give you flexibility to decide how much you’re willing to pay for the infra services and have consistent, predictable monthly bill, which helps you plan and optimize your IT budget
Cost saving: Staffing a full-time IT department is expensive and often unnecessary for small to medium-sized businesses. Outsourcing to a cloud managed services provider can save you thousands of dollars each year on the cost of an in-house IT department.
