Cloud technology gives view to the future

For many organizations, migrating to cloud-based technology is a significant step forward in their IT capabilities.

Hendrix Genetics is currently navigating this transition in order to enhance collaboration, protect data, and streamline our workspace. Similarly, our customers may be facing similar questions on why moving to the cloud will add value in your organization. Below are just some of the reasons why investment in cloud technology means investment in the future.

Collaborative

As organizations grow across continents and regions and are managed by a growing and changing workforce, easy collaboration is not just a benefit, it’s a need. The cloud allows employees to easily access files and work together, in real time.

By using the cloud, files can be better organized and maintained. This leads to increased brainstorming and clear communication when working as a team. When barriers to information is removed, this gives teams more energy to create innovative solutions in all areas of our organization. Cloud technology also allows access to new tools that empower employees to work smarter, not harder.

Secure

Security was once a concern when migrating to the cloud. However, now that the majority of large, global organizations operate on the cloud, the systems have been tried and tested for enhanced security. Security updates can be completed faster and can be applied across the whole organization. In addition, cloud migration allows IT to apply global standards to protect against malicious attacks or data loss.

Scalable

Finally, migrating to the cloud is an investment in better scalability. With one digital workspace in place, growth is much easier to execute. Less time is needed to set up and maintain IT systems. In addition, advancing the digital workspace opens up the opportunity for tools of the future, such as increased personalization. Having a workplace that can understand your wants and needs may seem like science fiction, but artificial intelligence have made great strides in providing more personalized services.

IT allows people to work smarter and solve problems more effectively by providing secure, agile and reliable tools for information sharing, collaboration and innovation. Investment in cloud technology is one way of future-proofing our organization. As we plan for the future, enhanced technological solutions will result in increased progress in delivering value for the entire chain.
