Business applications are steadily moving to the cloud. It’s not just a fad; the shift from traditional software models to the Internet has steadily gained momentum over the past 10 years. Looking ahead, the next decade of cloud computing promises new ways to work and collaborate through mobile devices.

Traditional client-server technology is costly and complex

Traditional business applications have always been complicated and expensive. The amount and variety of hardware, software infrastructure and IT staff required to run them is considerable and costly. Upgrades and frequently required and traditionally mobile access is limited. With a new age of increasing virus danger, your data with a client-server structure is in more danger of corruption and, perhaps worse still, data theft.

When you multiply this effort across departments and regions, it’s easy to see why the biggest companies with the best IT departments aren’t getting the apps they need. Small and mid-sized businesses with leaner operations find such financial outlays even more difficult.

Cloud computing: a better way

With cloud computing, you can eliminate those headaches, costs and dangers because you’re not managing hardware and software. The shared infrastructure of a cloud application means it works like a utility: you only pay for what you need, upgrades are automatic, and scaling up or down is easy. Data is housed inside data centres for whom data protection is their livelihood, providing the highest possible level of encryption and security for banks, financial institutions and the highest profile organisations. These data centre provide a level of protection better in fact than most companies will ever have.

Once developed, cloud-based apps can be up and running in days or weeks, significantly reducing implementation costs. Development and implementation time is reduced from years to months.

When evaluating a cloud supplier, bear in mind that as cloud computing grows in popularity, thousands of companies are simply rebranding their non-cloud products and services as “cloud computing.” Always dig deeper when evaluating cloud offerings and keep in mind that if you have to buy and manage hardware and software, what you’re looking at isn’t really cloud computing but a false cloud. Also bear in mind that subscription models (SaaS), while immediately affordable, can be very costly in the long term; Digisil will develop a solution that works for you financially both now and for the future.

Mobility and collaboration

The latest innovations in cloud computing are making our business applications even more mobile and collaborative, similar to popular consumer apps like Facebook and Twitter. As consumers and employees, we now expect that the information we need will be pushed to us in real time. Cloud apps can push work related content and data to you so you are always connected to your clients and your business, wherever you may be.
