3 Enlightening Reasons Why Telecom Needs the Cloud
Although the telecom industry has approached cloud services with caution, many areas of concern are actually strengths, depending on the provider.
In Q3 of 2020 alone, global cloud spending increased by an astonishing 33%. Reasons include flexibility of expenditures and the adaptation to emerging workstyles due to the pandemic. Industries that embrace cloud adoption include architecture/ engineering/ construction (AEC), power and utilities, aerospace, and many more. Studies suggest that leveraging cloud technology drives:
Finding the right blend of services and the right provider will allow your organization to offload burdensome IT workloads, increase ROI, and provide a more accessible and secure environment for teams and customers alike.
1. Security Is the Best Policy
Security should always be a chief concern when considering any IT initiative. Gartner analysts advise not to hold back on cloud initiatives due to “unsubstantiated security worries.” Organizations need to focus on four critical elements of security, including:
- Layered security
- Highly controlled access
- Automated security measures
- Cloud disaster recovery with rapid response times
How LoadSpring Helps You Securely Get to the Cloud
LoadSpring built its cloud services from the ground up, with security as the chief priority. LoadSpring’s cloud engineering team devised and executed a multilayer cloud security system that keeps bad guys out and your people connected to and protected by the cloud 24/7. LoadSpring’s security meets and beats Fortune 100 and U.S. government standards.
2. Flexibility is Essential
Flexible cloud plans and services help enterprises reduce inherent IT costs and move towards agile, adaptable, and cost-effective structures. Rather than invest in legacy IT architecture, companies are shifting to “pay-as-you-go” services for infrastructure handled offsite. These services include Platform as a Service (PaaS), a range of custom cloud options, cloud hosted software, and business intelligence/analytics.
Telecom companies that work with experts like LoadSpring to execute their cloud maturity plan create savings for the company and pass savings to their customers.
3. Collaboration and Connectivity
Although many companies had mobile workforces before 2020, work-from-home skyrocketed as a result of the pandemic. Hybrid and on-site work is trickling back; however, 36.2 million members of the U.S. workforce will work remotely by 2025, an 87% increase over pre-pandemic levels. Whatever the mix within your organization, providing teams the tools–when and where they need them–is critical for success.
Cloud-based platforms and software access allow for easy collaboration and real-time sharing. LoadSpring Cloud Platform™ is viable for in-house and remote workforces alike, delivering the software your teams need to get the job done. Performance tuning allows remote workers the same or increased performance over locally installed versions and over competing cloud providers. Offsite teams can also take advantage of LoadSpringMobile™, bringing project data and collaborative tools to any mobile device. It’s also as easy as pushing a button to assign, reassign, and track software usage. Ramping teams up and down, providing seats to employees and contractors alike, goes from an IT burden to a streamlined, easy process.
