Flexibility is a boon to any industry with the advantages of cloud technology and services. And with it you gain the ability to convert capital expense to operational expense. When you combine that with faster deployment times, less or no software management, hardware, and infrastructure, the gain in flexibility is measurable.
Besides being a smart cash flow decision, you also have the power to change your financial paradigm in a positive way. Three of these valuable gains include the following:
- Little or no up-front software or hardware investment is required
- The need to support, maintain, or train additional IT staff is eliminated
- The right pricing structure, in a pay-as-you-go model can be locked in
Your Service agreement will carefully articulate what services are provided, so your company will benefit as this agreement gives you exceptional customer service and support 24/7/365. And because Cloud providers carefully articulate what services are provided in their Service agreements, you know exactly what to expect.
Fast, Flexible Deployment
Faster deployments using cloud technologies is another big gain. Cloud providers cut the need for your organization to buy the needed third-party software to integrate, maintain, and service a cloud infrastructure. Cloud service providers also perform all the required maintenance tasks on a large scale, making it easier and more efficient than an internal IT department.
Flexibility and Scalability
Known for flexible scalability, Cloud technologies allow an organization to do more than scale up or down. You can better utilize smart technology, integrate the cloud footprint across your organization and modify strategies for cost control in order to proactively plan for growth.
Flexibility can mean a lot of different things, but when describing a whole system, it usually refers to the ability for the solution to adapt to possible or future changes in its requirements. Software needs can be fluid, so the concept of flexibility should be considered from the standpoint of the current need, realizing that it will most likely change at some future time, near or far.
Healthcare Industry as an Example of Flexibility Value
Cloud technology has accelerated so the healthcare industry can share information, increase flexibility, enhance scalability, and reap measurable savings at the same time.
Moving to a digital platform has given the healthcare sector a way to transform healthcare data into meaningful information, making data sharing easier and more accessible for users. Cloud solutions make it possible to share large data files conveniently, and with the convenience that not only saves overall healthcare costs but also boosts efficiency.
Healthcare industries must be agile to adapt to the changes that come with rate fluctuations and changes in compliance. Affordability is more plausible with cloud technology, as is flexibility, scalability, and security. Reaching or managing millions of customers demand a more powerful system and security is a major issue when it comes to shared patient data within the healthcare industry. Flexibility in healthcare by modern standards is a must-have.
