Migrating To The Cloud Isn’t As Complicated As You Think

Leave a comment

cloud migrationThe cloud is growing in popularity but CIOs still have a number of concerns regarding system migration. A recent survey showed 56% felt that the migration process would be too complex and 81% were concerned about security. Many fear that moving to the cloud could cost into the millions, that the risks are too high and that the process is too time consuming. However, whilst justified, these fears are not reflective of the true picture.

In fact, the cloud brings numerous benefits to the company as a whole, the most notable being cost savings. For example CounterBooks’ cloud-based system automates 80-90% of the accounting process saving companies thousands. This automation also increases accuracy, thereby improving overall performance.

Data from traditional systems is easily migrated to the cloud and does not consume vast amounts of time or money. It’s also highly secure, for example with CounterBooks all data is encrypted, fully backed up and stored in servers with 24/7 maintenance.

Furthermore, the cloud provides an excellent platform to suit the growing trend of on-the-go flexible working, providing staff with the information they need whenever and wherever they need it.
