Benefits of cloud services
Cloud Services provide information technology (IT) as a service over the Internet or dedicated network, with delivery on demand, and payment based on usage. Cloud services range from full applications and development platforms, to servers, storage, and virtual desktops.
Corporate and government entities utilise cloud based services to address a variety of application and infrastructure needs such as CRM, database, compute, and data storage.
Unlike a traditional IT environment, where software and hardware are funded upfront and implemented over a period of months, cloud based services deliver IT resources in minutes to hours and align costs to actual usage. As a result, organisations have greater agility and can manage expenses more efficiently.
Similarly, consumers utilize cloud based services to simplify application utilization, store, share, and protect content, and enable access from any web-connected device.
Among the many types of cloud services delivered internally or by 3rd party service providers, the most common are:
Microsoft 365 / Office 365
Microsoft Windows / Perpetual Licenses
