PRLog - Dec. 2, 2011 - IT Support London company, Ziptech Services haspredicted that 2012 will be the year of the Cloud for small and medium sized businesses (SMBs). This is based on the levels of interest that the company is seeing for moving operations from atraditional on-site server set up to a Cloud Computing infrastructure amongst clients and prospects.
Ziptech Services Ltd
Managing Director, Jim Simpson believes that this increased interest has been fuelled by a heightened awareness of the benefits of Cloud Computing due to a rise in media coverage and economic necessity.
“The major players in the IT industry are investing heavily in the Cloud – Oracle, Google and Microsoft. They have been seeding the media for some time but it’s only in the past 6 months that Cloud Computing as a term has become more mainstream and used regularly in news and current affairs coverage. This familiarity has dispelled some of the anxiety amongst non-technical business owners who now believe that Cloud is not a risky new innovation but tried, tested and rapidly being adopted as the new computing paradigm.
Small businesses have had a tough year and are looking to cut costs and streamline operations where ever they can. The concept of getting rid of the office server along with all the associated expenses is therefore a very attractive one and they also like the pay-as-you-go way of paying for applications and the idea of easy access to applications on any device.”
Ziptech prides itself on being at the forefront of providing SMBs with the types of IT services that they need to run their businesses efficiently. They were one of the first UK IT Services companies to offer packaged Cloud Computing appraisals.
Jim Simpson concludes: “We already have some clients running their applications in the Cloud and we believe that 2012 will see more adopting a hybrid approach or making the leap to running everything in the Cloud. Cloud Computing momentum has been building for a while and the time is definitely right – I’d even go as far as saying it was the perfect storm”.
