Is It Time For Your Business To Transition To The Cloud?

Transition To The Cloud… When?

How important is it that you transition to the cloud? Some would say it’s imperative, while others are comfortable with outdated systems.SlingShotData-CloudTweaks-01

While there are complications transition to any new infrastructure or software, the benefits seem to far outweigh the costs of moving to the cloud. The numbers don’t lie, they speak for themselves. We studied some of the numbers from an infographic produced by several reputable tech news sources. You might be surprised to hear what we’ve found.

From the Infographic: “Since the 1960’s, cloud computing has developed over time to the maturing of virtualization and Web 2.0. Some consider the cloud one of the most important technological developments in decades. Cloud computing is radically evolving as it allows businesses to increase efficiency.

Surprising stats about businesses making the transition to the cloud:

  • 82% of companies polled saved money in their cloud adoption project
  • 52% of IT decision makers polled reported increased data center efficiency and utilization
  • 49% of companies polled processed the bulk of their workloads in the cloud in 2014

The infographic below has been provided by the group at fastlaneus.com.

Obviously, the drastic increase in demand for cloud services puts those professionals with cloud service experience at a premium. The infographic tells us that over half of the downtime that business managers faced in the past six months from that time was due to poor integration or misunderstanding of transitioning to the cloud. More than 500,000 cloud computing jobs are needed every year. 1.7 million jobs were left unfilled due to lack of cloud service training way back in 2012.

The cloud is here to stay. And it’s only going to keep improving. How has moving to the cloud helped your organization or business?
