It is a fact that no company is exempt from facing periods of crisis, especially when the country's economic situation is not the most favorable. And in the midst of this scenario, companies are starting to look for new ways to save, and investments in technology end up being one of the first cuts in budgets.

But the good news is that with cloud computing it is possible to save money and at the same time maintain or further improve the accessibility, security and response time of the technology in your company . And thinking about this subject, we separate some important points so that you can know what cloud computing can bring to your company's economy in times of crisis. Follow!

Reduced support costs

When migrating to the cloud, your company delegates support to those who really master the subject and thus saves on server maintenance and management costs.

And depending on the chosen provider, it is possible to count on services optimized with the latest in technology. That is, in addition to saving with investments, your company now has cutting-edge technology.

Scalability

Cloud computing also helps companies to expand or retrograde their IT infrastructures according to their current needs. This means that if your company needs to expand its servers today, it won't need to buy new equipment and hire additional labor for installation and management.

And if tomorrow you need to reduce your company's infrastructure, you won't have unnecessary expenses with idle machines, because in the cloud there is flexibility where the customer only pays for what he will use.

Electricity

For some people, energy savings can represent a symbolic value when it comes to cloud computing. But when it comes to companies that operate with several servers connected all the time, it is possible to generate good savings by migrating to the cloud . And it is worth remembering that when the subject is crisis, any economy is welcome for companies.

Mobility

Another excellent example of savings that companies can achieve by migrating to the cloud relates to mobility. That is, as the data can be accessed from any device and location, it increases the possibility of companies offering the home office to their employees, which provides savings in several aspects.

IaaS: New Cost Model

If a company today needs to expand its IT infrastructure, it will need to buy servers, hire labor for installation, allocate professionals for management, deal with new software licenses, among other common factors that, as we know, generate high costs for the company. . However, when that same company opts for cloud computing, it manages to change its cost model. That is, it hires its infrastructure as a service (IaaS – Infrastructure as a Service) and pays only for what it uses.

In times of crisis, this change becomes very beneficial for companies, as it is possible to have greater working capital for the business instead of simply spending a high investment in expanding infrastructure that may even be wasted in canceled or failed projects.

In times of crisis, saving ends up becoming fundamental for the survival of any company . And as we have seen, cloud computing tends to provide several ways to save within the corporate world and even go beyond, with the opportunity to deploy new technological solutions.

Thus, it is not possible to deny that the cloud computing model is here to stay, since it is advantageous even in economically unfavorable times for business.
