Is Cloud Key to Maximizing the Benefits for Business Growth?


Businesses around the world are moving to cloud first models and seeing the growth patterns by reducing technology costs and at the same time increasing business agility. Where the cloud has taken businesses by storm, some are still waiting to see how things mature and fold out. Whatever the case may be, many have realized that cloud adoption is a journey and not a destination. Have you made the decision to make the move yet?

The impact of cloud computing on the business has grown tremendously. Cloud services have infiltrated every business sphere and have become the backbone of every industry and vertical. The ability of cloud to elastically scale up and scale down with ease have made long lasting impacts of how businesses can be run in modern era.

So, what does it mean for your business? Should you shift from an on-prem setup to cloud infrastructure? Any doubts crossing your mind? Let’s clear them up.

The Cloud Journey

While ‘moving to the cloud’ and ‘adapting to cloud technology’ have become the most talked about terminologies for many businesses today, there is more to it than meets the eye.

Cloud adoption means giving part of the responsibility of managing and maintaining underlying technology to a trusted external party; so that you can worry about service offerings and core business outcomes.

You build your business wherever and whenever you want without worrying about time-lapse or time-to-market strategy. With cloud, you just start utilizing the resources that are already available for you to run your business smoothly.

Recent Paradigm Shift

I don’t need a hard disk in my computer if I can get to the server faster. Carrying around these non-connected computers is byzantine by comparison.”

– Late Steve Jobs, Co-founder, CEO, and Chairman, Apple Inc..

Nearly a decade ago, businesses believed they were far more efficient with their servers and data storage in one place, on-prem. Business believed that keeping data on-premises ensures that it is secure. However, this philosophy proved wrong over time as cloud evolved.

Companies soon realized that it is costly and takes tremendous amount of effort to keep on-premises data centers round the cloud. It is also not efficient since those resources are mostly static and do not grow and shrink as the peak load and demand changes. On-premises workloads are also not as secure as businesses once thought they were as compared to cloud infrastructure.

The core business impact of the cloud can be seen through this latest report by Gartner, which states: “The average cloud expenditures for end users are set to cross nearly $398 billion in 2022.’ This shows the confidence of businesses in cloud computing.

Most CIOs today face immense pressure from external and internal stakeholders to be able to dynamically scale up and scale down infrastructure to support the complex business environment and changing needs of the market.

So, what’s in it for you, and how can your business benefit from cloud infrastructure?

You adapt to cloud infrastructure while circumventing the need for your business to make upfront investments in technology. In short, this would help you test out the latest and greatest features in your business applications without the need to have dedicated hardware. This would foster the spirit of innovation within your organization and keep you abreast with changing market dynamics.

Cloud infrastructure, if adapted properly, allows you to stay leagues ahead of any on-prem technology counterpart.

Huawei has made significant investments in the IaaS ecosystem in the past two years, with its revenue scaling beyond $4.2 billion. This was possible through its strategy for open hardware, open-source software, and partner enablement, which has helped it to provide increased offerings for startups, universities, etc.

Cost Matters Most

Nearly a decade ago there was an increased adoption of identifying cost centers within the businesses for transparently allocating technology costs to aid technology related business decisions.

These costs when bound to business units and the transparency which came along with it, fundamentally changed how cost reductions were seen as a whole. Cloud eventually made it easier to identify cost saving opportunities.

A typical server costs around $15000 to $25000 and can rise depending on higher more powerful specifications. But that is not all. You will need to invest in replacement parts, downtime, electricity, software licenses, cooling requirements, human resources and much more. Thus, increasing your total cost of ownership.

Cloud provides many opportunities to identify and act upon rationalization and cost optimization. There are tools which can connect to multiple cloud sources and on-prem sources to provide with a single view of where the cost centers are within your business and where the most of technology usage is going.

Some examples which can be useful in cost saving on the cloud are:

Ability to dynamically scale up and scale down resources

Ability to reserve cloud instances for a number of years, based on the anticipated usage

Ability to provision infrastructure as Code, thereby eliminating the need to have a hot disaster recovery center in a standby region

Speed of business

There is nothing more impairing for business than not being able to reach your customers on time. This can potentially have huge opportunity cost outcomes. With the help of cloud infrastructure, businesses have the liberty to roll out code within hours. It, in turn, results in launching beta versions faster and gaining an edge to launch products quicker.

In other words, you can leverage Agile coding practices within the cloud infrastructure and reduce the time it takes to release new features to the end customers.

Multi-cloud approach

Today, companies are increasingly turning to multi-cloud environments to balance their workload and achieve optimal performance with reduced latency. There are various reasons why organizations have chosen a multi-cloud approach. There are also various ways in which people have achieved business outcomes such as data integration, monitoring and visibility into costs.

In our experience people have to strike the right balance between on-premises and various public cloud offerings based on many variables such as costs, licensing restrictions, platform restrictions, performance and proximity.

The usage of multiple cloud providers allows organizations to move from a one-size-fits-all approach and choose cloud providers based on their application usage, licensing limitations, proximity and costs.

Having a multi-cloud approach can also support on-premises integration to build a resilient infrastructure.

Cloud infrastructure is your tomorrow.

In short, cloud infrastructure services play a crucial role in IT modernization across almost all industry verticals. Whether it is scaling your existing business requirement or building your business from scratch, having a robust cloud infrastructure helps in dynamically scaling based on requirements, improving performance, improving resilience and high availability and increasing business agility by building products on demand.
