Should I Move to the Cloud? Is it Right for Me?
There’s a reason why nine out of 10 IT decision makers have a positive opinion toward cloud computing. And there is also a reason why more companies are turning to the cloud to take advantage of its many benefits such as lower capital expenditure, easier maintenance and upgrades, increased flexibility, mobility and scalability, enhanced business continuity and improved IT security.
In fact, according to a recent survey, one out of four organizations is heavily invested in cloud computing – meaning they are using the cloud as a “strategic initiative to transform business.” Further, more than half of businesses in the United States are now using cloud computing for IT purposes.
Cloud computing allows businesses to source IT services without taking on the cost of investing in additional IT infrastructures. Also, IT personnel don’t have worry about managing applications in the cloud because the responsibility falls on the shoulders of the cloud computing provider. Even more, employees have anytime, anywhere access to critical business data and remote working capabilities. This is particularly important in the manufacturing environment.
When you decide to implement a cloud based enterprise quality management system, you will be able to monitor your production from anywhere across the globe. There is no installation required; all you need is Internet access and you will be able gain access all of the tools that you need to detect variations in the consistency of your products.
There should be no question as to whether cloud technology is right for your organization. It can help you better govern the quality of your manufactured goods at a fraction of the time and cost it would otherwise take. All it takes is the understanding that you are already using cloud technology in just about about every electronic transaction that you make over the course of a day—from the music that you download and store to the bank that you log in over your smartphone.
