Some companies choose to develop and invest in internal capabilities as a means to attaining a larger corporate-shared services organisation. Often, there may be some leverage in the consolidation and standardised processes for serving diverse business segments and locations. Other companies decide to simply outsource, because the experience, expertise, and time & cost-saving features brought to the table by managed service providers are too good to pass up. Expanding staff capacity would seem the easier of the two models to deploy at the initial stage. Once a company identifies the need for more resources to meet a particular growth initiative or project, it becomes pretty straightforward to add more hands, be they contractors or temporary staff.

It is undisputable that we now live in an era where data is considered the new currency. Almost every aspect of business today is connected to some variety of data management mechanism and conveyed to a specific target audience, whether they’re a particular group of web visitors or customers looking for a specific product. As it stands, the way you manage and deliver this data can drastically impact the success of your business venture. In truth, the nature and volume of contemporary business data is such that it’s becoming more challenging to manage. As a result, processes such as in-house resource computations, automation, and disaster recovery are almost impossible to accomplish efficiently, especially for small and medium enterprises or non-profit organisations.

Standard cloud services by companies from Canberra and beyond are almost everywhere nowadays, and for good reason. Perhaps one of the biggest business benefits of cloud computing is better efficiency: services and/or products are ready for consumption in mere minutes, compared to old days when it takes weeks or even months. Because of this, companies are receiving an almost non-stop influx of profit. What is cloud computing anyway? In general terms, cloud computing refers to the storing, accessing, and processing of data over the Internet instead of using a physical piece of hardware. Essentially, data processing which used to be only doable in actual computers can now be done digitally, completely devoid of wires and any other components but powerful servers and web connections.

In this age, it’s not uncommon for businesses to store confidential data in places such as cloud services. Such activity has made complex security procedures all the more vital, though the task is pretty much exclusive for larger, multimillion companies. After all, they’re the ones who have all the money to afford this seeming luxury of security, right? Wrong. In case it hasn’t been made clear to you, small businesses such as your own are also targets. Why? Compared to the “big boys,” your company isn’t likely to have extremely complex digital security, making it a much easier target. It’s not only the money that cyber crooks are after these days, too. Everything, including customer information and intellectual property, can be illegally used for financial gain.
