When the sale is over, capacity can shrink to reduce costs. 10. Facilitate M&A activity: Cloud computing accommodates faster changes so that two companies can become one much faster and more efficiently. Traditional computing might require years of migrating applications and decommissioning data centers before two companies are running on the same IT stack. 11. Less environmental impact: With fewer data centers worldwide and more efficient operations, we are collectively having less of an impact on the environment. Companies who use shared resources improve their ‘green’ credentials. ; computingandhowyourbusinesscanbenefitfromthem/ RE: Adopting a New Muhammad Omar Jawed 9/3/2016 2:46:57 PM

Say Goodbye to IT Problems Cloud computing provides the ability to essentially outsource operational IT work to an external company. This shifts the risks and burden associated with having to maintain an IT infrastructure inhouse. Your cloud service provider will assume all the risks and most of the burden. 2. Safe and Secure The reluctance of many companies to move over to the cloud lies in a misapprehension that keeping IT operations under tight control inhouse, is a safer solution. However, while moving to the cloud does mean giving up some control, it is often the case that a third party firm will be able look after your data more securely than you could. 3. Flexibility, Functionality, and Efficiency Cloud computing allows you to adapt to market conditions with a certain flexibility that is not available when you use on site, physical solutions. Aside from adapting to external conditions, this virtual solution also enables quick responses to internal demands. If user demand increases, cloud services can be rise to meet the demand, and then be easily decreased as demand drops. Thus eliminating the problem of over provisioning or IT systems overload. 4. More Disaster Resistant Losing important data to a fire or some other disaster at your business premises can devastate your business. Data backup service providers have preached this message for a long time, but with the availability of cloud services it is now much more convenient to heed the message. 5. Makes Big Data Easy to Manage Finally, cloud computing makes it easier for companies to handle socalled "Big Data." Traditional data storage methods (not cloud) have not always provided a simple way for companies to carry out advanced analysis of their databases. In the case of large firms, this process can take many weeks and require highly knowledgeable specialists.
