Only a few contents in the IT industry are currently attracting more attention than the Cloud. The Covid-19 pandemic acted as a catalyst in this regard and accelerated the discussion of the issue. Cloud is nothing new, it is the future and ultimately the basis of intelligent, networked entrepreneurial action.
Digital business processes are changing the world of work for small and large companies. With digital technologies, supply chains are moving closer together, employees can capture costs and receipts on the go, and teams can be distributed while still working closely together. As soon as digital transformation is mentioned, this almost always includes Cloud Computing. Without the cloud, it is nearly impossible to distribute companies, systems or data decentralised. The Cloud offers companies more and more development potential to improve, network or automate their own workflows. Nevertheless, many companies find it difficult to move some of their data and processes to the Cloud. Companies that do not deal with cloud technologies risk being left behind in a digital world.
Security is the main argument against the use of Cloud technologies. Of course, Cloud Computing is a matter of trust. Sensitive data does not belong anywhere, but in a data centre that meets the highest security standards and is subject to the strict data protection regulations of the European Union. Professionally protected data centres consistently achieve a higher level of security than the server rooms of even large companies. So, the Cloud means less risk and more security.
Modern corporate structures have been characterized by an equal Cloud strategy for some time now. Companies benefit in particular from scalability, efficiency, performance and the cost advantages of a Cloud solution. Furthermore, innovative and high-growth business models within the Cloud can be implemented much faster and more cost-effectively.
A sub-area of cloud computing – SaaS – is of particular importance for the decisive competitive advantage. Software as a Service is based on the principle that both the required software and the IT infrastructure are not purchased by the user and operated "on premise" in the company's own IT but are provided for use by an external service provider. ISGUS' own data centre offers you security and maximum availability for your personnel data and is certified according to ISO/IEC 27001:2013. Data protection also has the highest priority in ISGUS' own data centre. German law and the EU GDPR apply here. With the Software as a Service model from ISGUS, you benefit from an improved cost structure and increased planning security for the IT budget. The SaaS solution from ISGUS enables you to increase efficiency, scalability and remote access to the solutions offered and automatic updates. Furthermore, the productivity of the company is increased, because access to services is possible from any networked device.
