The timing of business decisions is just as important as the reasoning and cost. You don't want to do it too early and waste money but doing it too late will boost errors and total costs. Here are five indicators that it may be time to upgrade to managed cloud services.
You're new to cloud systems
Many business owners don't realize the ongoing management of cloud systems is required. They expect to integrate the systems into their workflow, improve efficiency and that's what they want. When you're only starting out with cloud systems, considering managed cloud services is a smart idea to ensure they operate efficiently and securely.
You have security concerns
Digital security is a comprehensible problem for organizations these days. If digital security is your company's main concern, it's probably about time to hire some tech experts to track it for you. Although cloud systems are highly secure within themselves, cloud services that are managed run routine security checks to enhance your peace of mind.
Myth 3: Disaster recovery is for big businesses, not SMBs
Due to the astronomical costs previously associated with DR, only big businesses would be able to afford solutions for backup and recovery. But now the cloud has made these valuable services affordable for SMEs (SMEs). SMBs can now take advantage of the best DR solutions on the market from the dental offices to small retail operations. Advances in IT and cloud have also removed the barriers of complexity, costs, and inadequate IT resources.
We hope you'd be persuaded to implement a disaster recovery plan (DRP) for your business by dispelling those myths. Not only is a DRP necessary for the continuity of your business, but one is also more affordable and more efficient than ever.
