Most businesses today have at least one or two functions in the cloud. That may be storing files, mobile workforce communications, or a marketing history for future reference. More and more business owners are discovering the benefits of switching all functions to the cloud. Those owners still paying for repairs and support for aging servers will want to explore the possibilities of the cloud for all aspects of the business.
The cloud eliminates the burden of maintaining servers on the premises. The space and money saved can be substantial. Owners are not information technology (IT) professionals. That means every little glitch or issue with computers or applications are addressed by outside technicians. That increases overhead costs and impacts the ability to compete.
Freedom is a benefit as well. The cloud operates sans traditional system limits so business can be conducted anywhere on any device. Owners and employees are not tied to a desk, or even to the physical location. Double checking figures, monitoring progress, and managing inventory are a few examples of functions that can be accessed at any time.
Some business owners are under the impression that moving functions to the cloud will be difficult and expensive. That is not the case with Microsoft Cloud Services. Owners can pick and choose what services they need or desire to operate the business with security and flexibility. Full featured applications are ordered and provisioned within minutes.
Switching to the cloud is inexpensive and quick. Simply go to the marketplace to view all available Cloud Services for Businesses. The variety is extensive. Clicking on any icon provides an overview, pricing and add-ons, and support information. That service can be ordered immediately or noted for future consideration.
Applications are all designed to be scalable to suit the needs of all business sizes and functions. Customized solutions are offered, security meets standards for most industries, and there is currently the opportunity to try the hosted desktop service free of charge. It is well worth the time to visit the marketplace and learn more. Registration can be completed by clicking the button located right on the marketplace face page.
