Cloud is obviously an indispensable technology to develop and manage the highly dynamic applications that involve complex architecture and massive data. These days, the technology is passing through a tremendous transformation. With the increasing reliability, not only corporate but SMEs are making up their minds to adopt cloud for the safe storage and management of the digital assets.
Yes, startups and mid-sized companies are also gearing up to utilize cloud capabilities to maintain their digital properties such as CCTV footage, documents, files, etc. They are also planning to run their large to small scale enterprise systems such as ERP, CRM, HRMS, communication tools, applications, operating systems, etc. on the cloud. Growing usage of cloud is thanks to the enormous benefits offered by the technology.
Cloud enables companies to reduce the cost of storing the data on their own servers. Leveraging cloud capabilities businesses can attain extreme scalability and advanced availability of resources. Let’s see how the cloud is changing the organizational landscape by providing effective management of internal resources.
Team Collaboration Tools
Organizations communicate with internal and external resources trough project management, file sharing, email, instant messaging, web conferencing, etc. When all the above systems are hosted and run on a local server, then the local users definitely work seamlessly. But, it becomes cumbersome for the remote users as the local server doesn’t work everywhere.
Cloud hosted software can be available to everyone at any time. So, there are zero chances for communication gap due to any technical reason. Smooth communication channel improves transparency, reliability, and ultimately helps in generating business.
Human Resource Management System
The Human Resource system performs various organizational activities related to employees and administration. HR department has to execute a wide-ranging workload that involves human capital management, benefits administration, finance and accounting, expense reporting, recruitment management, time management, SCM/procurement, and more.
HR and administrative details are quite confidential so such systems run on company’s own server. Usually, they consume around 50% of computing capacity. That means IT department need not waste their energy in managing and maintaining a lot of unused computing power. Relocating the HR systems on the cloud, organizations can allocate the server(s) to the applications that require more steady computing power. IT department can gain time and efficiency by hosting or running the HR software on reputed cloud of AWS, Azure, Google, etc.
Enterprise Resource Planning
ERP is the heart of any organization. It contains several essential details related to product planning, customer services, inventory, order tracking, etc. By hosting ERP system on the cloud, companies can free up a massive space of on-premise hardware footprint by reducing the load on both servers as well as storage. It also increases the elasticity of the applications by adding more storage and computing whenever needed. Additionally, it enables the staff to access the system from any device at any time to accomplish their job effectively.
Customer Relationship Management
CRM is an essential system for the companies that contains the crucial data of the consumers. It’s a large software that contains a massive volume of data, stored in databases. CRM automates marketing operations, sales processes, contact center, geo-location technology, etc.
The software requires high availability as the sales team needs to interact with the customers frequently. The sales staff have to be ready with required resources such as documentation, videos, infographic, and so on all the time. Cloud runs all this database without any disruption so that the customers can end users can rely on it every day. Large scale application also involves the integration of virtual machines as a part of the architecture. So, organizations have to manage and process the data in terabytes.
Moreover, the sales team has to run multiple applications at the same time to entertain various clients by offering comprehensive demos of relevant solutions. Cloud keeps your all sales resources on. So, it becomes easy for the sales team to close the deals in real-time. It also reduces the run time of applications and supports the cost cutting by releasing the massive space of on-premise server(s).
Previously, the data stores at on-premises hardware or server(s). There were chances of data loss in case of any vulnerability. Migrating the data on the cloud, organizations can reserve the data with outstanding scalability and availability. It’s an online backup strategy where companies send a copy of data over a public or proprietary network to an off-site server.
Cloud backup includes a set of software and hardware that protects the organization’s data including applications. SMEs to corporate can take the backup of n number of files, web or mobile applications, solution architecture, etc. on the cloud for all time data availability.
Usage of CCTV camera is quite common in organizational premises. Companies can store and manage the day to day footage on the cloud server rather than loading them on their machine or local server. It saves the space of their local server that they can utilize for the application that needs be run isolated.
