Leveraging Private Cloud for Remote Workforce Enablement

Leveraging Private Cloud for Remote Workforce Enablement

Remote work has become commonplace in the professional world. Enterprises continue to find benefits of distributed workforces, and cloud infrastructure is a huge contributor to the success of these teams.

Your Cloud Is an Integral Part of Your Business

Cloud environments are critical to employee workflows and productivity. These platforms have become the foundation for internal collaboration, customer communication, and moving projects forward. Enterprises continue to handle massive volumes of data that only grow as businesses expand.

Since so many enterprise processes depend on cloud environments, functional and scalable infrastructure is crucial for modern businesses. Public cloud services may have been a way to sustain operations in the past, but it's now a question of cost and optimization. How can companies cost-effectively develop their cloud estates to support productivity? 

Benefits of Remote Work and Private Cloud Computing

Remote workforces and private cloud infrastructure are natural partners in the world of distributed teams. With digital transformation through private cloud, companies can enjoy:

  • Security: Private clouds can implement security features like authentication and encryption to keep data secure even as it travels between remote workers. Unlike public clouds, private clouds don't run the risks associated with multi-tenancy (storing your data on the same physical machines as other organizations and users). Remote teams can also rely on cloud technology for disaster recovery if unforeseen circumstances lead to data loss. 

  • Compliance: Alongside security needs comes the question of compliance. Highly regulated industries that handle sensitive data require more intensive data protection policies to align with governing bodies. While it may be difficult or impossible to meet compliance requirements on a public cloud, private clouds give you the control you need.

  • Flexibility: Employees can access enterprise data, files, and applications from anywhere with cloud computing. All employees need is a reliable internet connection, and they can work from anywhere and stay productive. This increased flexibility is ideal for improving work-life balance.

  • Cost savings: Cloud computing for a distributed workforce helps enterprises cut down on physical office costs, like rent and utilities. Businesses can benefit from monthly subscription models for cloud services, and implement Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) programs for maximum savings.

  • Productivity: With the power of cloud-based tools, employees can stay productive throughout the day and automate the tasks that often become busy work. Real-time access to data ensures all workers are up to date around the clock.

  • Maintenance: Updates and patches automatically roll out with cloud platforms, so IT teams can save time and prevent costly downtime for other team members. Employees get to enjoy access to the fastest, most updated applications.

Why Quality Cloud Infrastructure Matters

A consistent, functional cloud environment is critical for safeguarding the workplace and your employees. With enterprise data migrating to the cloud, companies must prioritize a reliable, up-to-date infrastructure that keeps data safe. Quality private cloud platforms need strong access management and data protection to ensure data is safe. This protection is especially important for industries with intensive compliance requirements and data governance policies. 

In addition to secure access to data, quality cloud infrastructure ensures the continuity of your business. Downtime can be costly and have a negative impact on the customer and employee experience. While businesses lose progress on projects during outages, employee experience suffers and can go as far as impacting retention. Customers may form negative opinions of a business that has frequent application downtime.

Quality cloud infrastructure makes the workday seamless for every employee. At the same time, cloud technology increases agility in today's rapidly changing market. Enterprises can use their cloud platforms to scale as their needs change and adjust allocation of resources quickly. With a private cloud environment, businesses enjoy even more customization to make their operations reflect their priority demands.
