The benefits of moving from an on-premises IT set up to cloud/hybrid

Cloud and hybrid solutions solve many complex business needs, and enhance functionality, efficiency, and collaboration across all departments. Along with increased flexibility and scalability, the key benefits include:

Reduced IT costs – Cloud software is purchased as a subscription model, the one-off price is low, and the costs are spread more evenly.

Anywhere working – Create a virtual office for your employees giving them the freedom and flexibility to work anywhere, any time and on any device. 

Reliability – You don’t have to worry about managing your IT systems yourself, your cloud provider will handle all updates, security, compliance, monitoring, remediations, licenses and more.
