Five Reasons why Small Businesses need Managed Cloud Services
Following the pandemic, many businesses quickly transitioned to the cloud, however some still have legacy software running on-prem or aren’t fully leveraging the full capabilities of cloud services. In this blog post, we highlight five reasons why small businesses need managed Cloud Services.
Cloud Services provides access to on-demand storage, processing expansion, software applications, and databases. The problem is most SMBs (small-medium businesses) don’t have the internal expertise, time, or understand the transition plan required to move to the cloud, configure resources, to leverage their cloud environment at full capabilities. This is where Managed Cloud Services comes in.
Five Benefits to your Small Business
Scalable Resources: Cloud solutions scale up or down to meet current business demands without the need to make large-scale purchases or pay for excess resources you don’t need.
Security: Storing your data on-site presents all sorts of risks resulting from server hardware failure, fire, power surge, extreme weather and more. Microsoft’s cloud security is always improving and allows you to take advantage of enterprise-grade security, like Modern Authentication, Microsoft Defender for Office 365, and conditional access policies.
Hybrid Work, Adaptability & Productivity: Organizations with higher degrees of cloud adoption are less reliant on a single physical office space and Virtual Private Networks. Employees can work and collaborate securely from anywhere, anytime.

Predictable Costs: With many cloud services you can pay a fixed monthly or annual service plan, helping you keep a predictable IT budget.
Reliability: Cloud services are available when you need them most, day or night. If there is a technical issue, you know that experts are working to resolve the problem.
