Impact of Cloud Computing Now and Post COVID -19

COVID-19 has impacted many if not most organizations which led them re-examine how they’re using technology. To meet the changing demands of the market they are relying on technology to survive and thrive in a post-pandemic world. Here are few ways in the which cloud computing has delivered exponential ROI and sustainable growth for SMB’s.

1. Flexibility and Scalability
There is no denying the fact that cloud computing does keep organizations agile on multiple fronts. Businesses with cloud infrastructure already in place were able to securely and quickly add both servers and users when they needed to. Companies, such as Nestle’ and Mars, have stressed on how their cloud environments delivered a key advantage over their competition by allowing them to increase packing and shipping of orders by 400% in just two days. As companies look to re-examine their business models to adapt to outside conditions, this type of agility will continue to be crucial to growing and succeeding in 2021.

2. Remote Workstations
As social distancing is becoming a new reality in the workplace, organizations are to look at options to keep employees safe. Cloud computing offers the ability to keep business moving with a full workforce. While majority of employees can work remotely, by simply connecting their own devices to the network through their own broadband sources, a smaller number of employees can work onsite to align with social-distancing recommendations. Ensuring your cloud infrastructure is compatible to your business requirements is a critical component on how flexible and scalable you can be. Collaborating with AWS-Certified cloud architects, like Aress, to manage, build, and deploy cloud infrastructure, as well as deliver ongoing management and maintenance can ensure you get it right.

3. Collaborative Workstreams
During the pandemic online meetings have become a vital part for every organization. All video conferencing and collaborative tools for everything from education and telemedicine to internal work meetings require cloud applications to function. Services such as collaborative digital workspaces are designed to take the agility of cloud computing one step further by allowing people to immediately share things like files, messages and notifications remotely and in a private setting. This in turn will allow teams to work more efficiently, productively and transparently to fuel innovation and other core business capabilities.

4. Contactless Contact Centers
Although businesses are hit, but customer-service call centers have been keeping the ball rolling during the pandemic. Cloud computing makes it easy for agents to work from home, so organizations could still provide support to their customers. With cloud’s scalability and flexibility, companies going forward will likely see additional advantages including: the ability to scale up and transition as many remote employees as necessary to meet increased demand.

5. Reactive to Proactive Culture
As mentioned earlier, one of the key aspects of successful cloud computing is a required shift in organization’s culture. With the initial impacts of COVID-19, the nature of the cloud delivered ROI the C-level executives were able to see in the bottom line, while employees were able to benefit from the change and value of cloud computing in their day-to-day roles. The ability to adapt quickly to any unforeseen scenario means businesses can start to make the switch from being reactive to proactive and focus on growth strategies and innovation.
