expanding the potential

Cloud computing has enormous potential. But to do so, companies need to rethink the way they do business. It is also necessary to review the roles of its employees and technology teams to allow for greater collaboration and adaptability.

For Sky.One customers, investing in cloud computing was the necessary step to continue the company's growth. In some cases, the company practically had a stoppage of its business until the strategic decision to migrate to the cloud.

How can cloud computing help business management?

Cloud-based computing uses the Internet to provide shared computing resources along with the processing power, memory, and disk storage needed to run a multitude of software applications. Features are added as needed to use cloud solutions.

The technology also provides support for different types of applications. For the business management of agribusiness, for example, there are solutions made up of modules that control everything from agricultural and livestock management to planning and costing methodologies, confinement, processing of products such as cotton, coffee and seeds, in addition to checking results and history of the production. With the use of the cloud, the management tool is accessed through the Internet, through servers that are hosted remotely.

Traditionally, enterprise management software is located on the customer's premises, which means that the company is responsible for purchasing, installing and maintaining the software and all related hardware. By migrating their entire infrastructure to the cloud, companies have lower costs because computing resources are billed for use from remote data centers rather than purchased outright and maintained at the customer's premises.

Benefits of cloud computing for business management

With the consolidated migration to the cloud, customers who successfully partnered with Sky.One felt that the first benefits achieved were related to cost reduction:

  • Decreased upfront expenses for all technology infrastructure such as hardware and data servers
  • Reduced IT support services because it is provided by the cloud computing provider
  • Elimination of upfront payment of software licenses in favor of a monthly fee
  • Reduced maintenance and support costs as the cloud vendor handles necessary updates
  • And the benefits have expanded, going beyond the financial advantages:
  • Payment occurs only for the necessary computational resources
  • Deployment has become faster, as the hardware and software acquisition process has virtually disappeared
  • It was possible to adjust the technological capacity as the storage or computing needs of the companies emerged
  • Security has become a priority thanks to a disaster recovery plan that reduces the risks linked to data loss, since information is not stored locally, but in the cloud

Finally, systems can now be accessed from anywhere, making it easier for a company to expand geographically as the Internet is everywhere and accessible to all customers.
