Simplify Your Software: Your Guide to Cloud Application Hosting

Adding, removing and maintaining applications on each individual machine is – let’s face it – sucking up time and resources you could devote to business initiatives with higher ROI. Enter cloud application hosting – a scalable solution that provides your team with a universal user experience, regardless of device or location. What is cloud application hosting, and what does it mean for your business? 

To host your applications in the cloud, you’ll need to partner with a trusted technology company that deploys applications via the cloud to each of your devices, typically through a web browser. The applications you use every day, like Office 365, can be added or removed from devices within minutes as your business needs change. Additionally, your cloud partner can deploy updates and upgrades simultaneously, ensuring that each member of your team is working with identical tools.  

Here are four business benefits to hosting your applications in the cloud: 

Streamline the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Experience 

Cloud application hosting enables employees to access applications on their smartphones, tablets and other devices with the same functionality as their desktop. Whether your employees work remotely or on-the-go, they can start a project on one device and seamlessly continue it on another – no need to forward important information to yourself.  

Manage Security Protocols 

Hosted applications allow you to enforce access policies to ensure that only authorized users can view sensitive information. From one central location, you can approve or revoke access to certain applications or data, down to the individual user. Plus, since all data is located on a cloud system, there’s no private data stored on the device itself – minimizing risk in case a device is lost or stolen. 

Boost Your Team’s Capabilities 

Cloud application hosting ensures that every member of your team has access to the same tools at the same time. This eliminates the confusion of your team being unable to open, send or collaborate on files because they are working with different versions of a program. Many cloud-based applications also allow for real-time collaboration on documents, spreadsheets, presentations and more. 

Cut Your Implementation Costs 

Since applications are hosted in the cloud instead of an on-premises server, you can eliminate your typical upfront capital expenditure and scale easily as your business grows without expanding your physical infrastructure. Cloud application hosting cuts your application management costs by as much as 90 percent and frees up your team to focus on more important initiatives.
