A recent report from Clutch suggests that only half of small businesses are using cloud storage solutions in their operations, but even fewer are using cloud storage beyond basic data backups and recovery features.
Security and compliance issues abound for many industries, but many small business owners either lack the time, resources, or understanding of the potential benefits of cloud computing and technology to fully utilize it in their day-to-day operations.
Slow adoption rates among small businesses and the ever-advancing march of modern technology walk hand-in-hand, often to the great misfortunate of small businesses looking to get ahead in their respective field. This has lead to the belief on the part of technology experts that apprehension and lack of education are primary reasons why small business owners fail to adopt new inventions, services, and products into their daily processes.
CMIT Solutions of Seattle has assisted hundreds of small business owners in order to bring their systems, services, and technology infrastructure up-to-date and secure at the same time. One of the fastest-growing segments in the tech world is cloud storage, otherwise known as the method of storing and accessing information from anywhere at anytime.
This provides many benefits for small businesses, the first being the democratization of data and resources among employees regardless of their geographic location. Start ups, remote teams, and large organizations alike need access to pertinent information no matter where they’re working. On a job site, at the office, or down the street at a coffee shop, your employees need access to their shared and personal company data – period.
Thanks to fierce competition in the market and the acknowledgement by larger institutions of the value of cloud technology, dozens of affordable, secure, and compliant cloud storage services exist that small businesses should take advantage of in order to stay competitive in their industry.
