The push towards cloud computing is becoming harder to ignore. If you know you want to move your business in this direction but aren’t quite sure where to start, let the tips in this two-part post be your guide.

Follow the crowd

According to a survey by IDG Enterprise email, collaboration, CRM, data storage and human resources are the top five most popular cloud applications, with approximately more than 50% of respondents planning to migrate within three years.  So if you’re looking for somewhere to start with your migration start with these five areas because there will be more than enough support for you during this time.

Strategix cloud hosting solutions provides several attractive benefits for your company by enabling you to consume computer resources as a utility – just like electricity – rather than having to build and maintain IT infrastructures on-premise.  Extending into the cloud should expand your options without adding complexity allowing you to meet changing business needs with greater flexibility.

Plan for growth

Cloud infrastructure allows you to scale up easily, which means that as your business grows your systems and infrastructure can be there to support you every step of the way without any hassles. Make sure your systems are up and running exactly the way you want them from the word go because a good system can go a long way in supporting your growth while a bad one can only hinder you.

Get as many people as possible using the cloud

Ultimately what you want to do is think of ways to get as many people to leverage the cloud as possible. The cloud improves mobile accessibility to your systems which means more people are now able to get work done from wherever they are. Think about how this could impact sales, marketing, recruitment etc. The possibilities are endless.
