Adapting to a global pandemic is no mean feat. For many organisations this has meant a swift shift to a remote working model that few were prepared for on such a large scale. Coping with this seismic change has required adapting to new demands and embracing infrastructure such as cloud computing. This has created opportunities as businesses have begun to realise that remote working across an entire enterprise is actually possible. Not only that but it could create a more efficient and productive approach going forward, especially if you’re able to fully utilise the potential of cloud computing services.
Make cloud computing the foundation of your working infrastructure
If you’re working from a cloud computing structure then you’re effectively setting your business free. Employees can work from anywhere, access documents and files on the move and share and upload no matter where they are. Enhanced security provides options for controlling who can access what and ensuring that only those who should be using your files and assets can do so. No matter what happens to working practices post COVID-19 your business will still be able to function.
Build resilience into your business
There is currently no end in sight in terms of the impact that COVID-19 is having on businesses across the board. Making greater use of cloud computing services can bring greater resilience to your business and provide options to adapt, thrive and survive as the situation continues to unfold.
Use cloud computing to facilitate greater collaboration
There are far fewer boundaries to collaboration when you’re providing access to a cloud computing platform through which to do it. Not only can you enable regular working practices to be sustained but you can also use the flexibility and versatility of cloud computing to find new opportunities for improvement where collaboration within the business is concerned. From jointly editing documents to sharing ideas and chatting at the same time as creating, cloud computing makes it much simpler to find new ways to bring people together for productivity purposes.
Make use of flexible storage
There are two key advantages to cloud storage today. The first is that security standards of cloud computing services providers are often significantly higher than can be achieved in-house. And the second is that cloud storage is flexible and can be downsized and upscaled as and when required.
Work with greater perspective
Cloud computing can make it much easier to track projects and monitor actions, retaining perspective on progress across an entire organisation. From milestones already achieved to looking ahead at what needs to happen to bring a project to completion, cloud based services provide a range of tools for keeping track and improving oversight, no matter how large the remote workforce might be.
This is a critical moment for many businesses in survival terms and being able to evolve and thrive will depend on the ability to adapt. Improving the way that cloud computing services are used within your business could hold the key to moving productively forward.
