The 10 Critical Benefits of Transitioning to Cloud Computing Solutions

In our previous article, we outlined the reasons for businesses' transition to Cloud Computing Solutions in 7 main categories.

As organizations embark on the journey of researching Cloud Solutions due to these 7 main reasons, they decide to transition to Cloud Solutions when they identify the 10 Critical Benefits that Cloud Computing Services bring along.

An important fact we all know is that in today's world, no product, solution, or service can sustain its presence in the market without a "Value Proposition." So what is the "Value Proposition" that elevates "Cloud Computing" solutions to the top 2 positions in corporate IT investments?

In this article, we will list the 10 critical benefits offered by "Cloud Computing" Solutions and try to convey the first 3 critical benefits in detail.

The 10 Critical Benefits of Transitioning to Cloud Computing Solutions for Business

  • Cost Savings
  • Scalability
  • Competitive Advantage
  • Information Security
  • Disaster Recovery
  • Solutions for Increased Business Mobility Needs:
  • Mobility
  • Quality Control
  • Sustainability

I. Additional (Marginal) Benefits of Cloud Solutions:
When transitioning to cloud computing, organizations can benefit from many marginal advantages alongside major concerns such as financial, security, and performance. These include acquiring a corporate structure that ensures business continuity, taking proactive measures, budgeting, and foreseeing investments and returns. Just like in any other field, there can be good and bad choices in this area as well. However, in both cases, there will be a minimum level of established standards, systematic work, and adherence to industry rules and methods. Many companies encounter IT Service Management (ITSM), ITIL, ISO quality standards for the first time, and as they begin to see the benefits of these standards, they realize how cloud systems contribute to the operation of their systems, especially without being dependent on individuals. It can be said that many additional benefits emerge, such as saving space in server rooms, even without realizing it, and many problems are automatically resolved with the transition to the cloud.

II. Cost Savings
In corporate structures, maintaining a balanced budget is crucial. Predicting expenses as much as possible and planning investments accordingly are of great importance for the continuity of the company. Just as sticking to the budget is critical for a company, eliminating unforeseen issues or uncertainties is equally vital. In many companies, the IT department often ranks among the departments that generate unforeseen expenses. The reasons can vary widely. Sometimes it's efforts to keep up with technology, sometimes it's the instantaneous decision changes in the competitive environment, and sometimes it could be unforeseen technical and administrative errors, among other factors. It's not always entirely possible to predict all these variables with 100% accuracy in advance.
Considering the wasted expenses due to wrong investments made based on feedback from subordinates and expert reports received by top-level executives, it is undeniable that after analyzing the needs of companies whose main business focus is not IT, they can control their spending by simply making service-based agreements. Cloud computing can lead to savings for organizations due to reasons such as predictable expenses, controlling budgets, and not spending beyond the planned amount if scaling is done correctly.

III. Scalability
Spreading investment over time and having the advantage of using as much capacity as needed without having to purchase the capacity you will need tomorrow from today is highly valuable. In a world where technology rapidly changes direction, it is a common concern for almost every sector or organization that the systems we acquire today at high cost remain idle until we fully utilize them, and when we need them, their technology becomes outdated. By leasing resources and services according to the size or needs of the structure, not only does it provide a financial advantage within the framework of a contract, but it also ensures the ability to use current technology. In other words, instead of having to buy a large truck when we only need a small van to carry our load, we can avoid unnecessary expenses. For these reasons, organizations prefer to use cloud computing designs that allow them to scale structures they cannot predict.
