No matter what size your company is, the time to transition to the Cloud is now. Have you taken the leap? 

Tech access is no longer just for mega-companies and global corporations. To be honest, it hasn’t been for a long time now. Whether we accept it or not, it won’t change the fact that technology is the way of the future. 

Don’t fall behind because the world of tech is about to reach new heights. Small scale companies and mid-sized businesses all need to go digital. It’s inevitable, so there’s no sense in dragging your feet. Going on the Cloud is a must as we enter into the new year. 

Here are 5 reasons why small-to-midsize companies should already be on the Cloud: 

The Pandemic Shortened the Timeline

We were already heavily invested in expanding technologies before this year’s pandemic. The online migration of business was a soon-to-be-realized reality before 2020. But, it turned out to happen quicker than anyone expected. 

COVID pushed everyone online. It was a sink-or-swim crisis that motivated everyone to establish a serious online model.

Now that we’re recovering from the pandemic, it’s time to look around and see what’s happened. We’re much farther down the tech evolution timeline than anticipated. Companies can’t pretend that nothing has changed. Business models should lean into technology during the pandemic recovery period instead of reverting “back to normal.” 

It’s a whole different ball game now. 

Take Advantage of 5G 

We all know 5G is rolling out alongside all of the other leaps and bounds of contemporary technology. But, they’re not independent systems. Cutting-edge technologies will be running off of the newly available 5G network. Modern tech and 5G go hand in hand. 

If you want to be able to gain access to 5G - and everything that comes along with it - your company needs a strong digital foundation. That all begins with moving onto the Cloud. 

Get Ready for the Next Decade

So much is coming in the next decade. Looking at technology alone, the jump from 2010 to 2020 is remarkable. 2030 will be on another level that goes beyond what we can even imagine today. 

One thing we learned this year is that change happens fast. Another thing we learned is that preparation is the best defense against unexpected change. Bolster your resilience by embracing the Cloud. 

Make Moves Where It Matters

If you want to be competitive, you need to have a strong arsenal of technology. That’s the baseline of today’s business culture. 

When expanding your technology, make moves that have an impact. Switching to the Cloud is one of the most powerful things you can do to increase your company’s use of technology. From there, you can easily scale your digitization. 

Set Yourself Up for Better Data 

Data is valuable. If you take this seriously, you need to take the Cloud seriously, too. 

When you’re on the Cloud, your data gets stronger. The more data you have, the better you’ll be able to leverage it. If your company is seeking a more data-driven model, it's time to adopt the Cloud.

I hope these 5 reasons inspire you to migrate onto the Cloud. No matter what size, your company deserves the benefits that Cloud integration has to offer. Stop waiting and make the change.
