As you know, we at Axxis Consulting are passionate about productivity improvement. Recently again we had a workshop with the Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce (SCCCI) to discuss how to overcome complexity and increase productivity in running and growing an SME Business. (In case you missed out on the workshop, you can find the material here). And for more information about productivity improvement in general, you might want to look at one of our most read articles on our blog: http://www.axxis-consulting.com/singapore-and-the-productivity-gap/
Cloud computing is on the rise. Over the last few years, we have seen a sharp increase in the amount of small and large businesses changing from traditional information technology infrastructures to cloud computing solutions, and many experts predict this will continue over the next decade – but what could cloud computing do for your business? Here are three ways cloud computing could improve productivity for your business.
The modern workplace is all about flexibility, and that’s why cloud computing is becoming such an important part of it. It is now more important than ever for businesses to remain adaptable to both internal and external forces, and unlike on-site physical computing solutions, cloud computing technologies allow your business to adapt quickly and easily to the ever changing market. Internally, if your user demand increases or decreases, or if you need to make a change to your information technology infrastructure, you can do so quickly, easily, and at little or no extra cost. It can also help you adapt to external conditions, too, as you aren’t tied to one information technology provider or service by physical equipment.
2. Managing big data
Cloud computing solutions are ideal for managing big data. Traditional, on-site storage methods have not always made it simple for businesses to carry out in-depth analysis on large amounts of data, whereas cloud computing, with its wide variety of applications and software tools, makes this much easier. In turn, this also saves your business money by removing the need for you to hire an external analyst or consultant to analyse your big data for you.
With cloud computing, you are always connected. Not bound by the office, you will see your workers’ productivity increase as they access work at home or on the commute. In addition, cloud computing is a great way to facilitate a mobile workforce and increase its productivity, as it offers accessibility and connectivity wherever they are. This is becoming increasingly important due to the rise of the number of mobile workers and those bringing their own devices into the workplace.
There you have it – three ways that cloud computing technologies could increase productivity amongst your workforce. If you would like to talk to us about you can improve productivity in your organisation, contact us at Axxis Consulting today on +65 6749-7069, or e-mail us here.
