Maybe you’ve thought about working with a Managed Service Provider but never went ahead. Perhaps you’ve probably thought that MSPs serve large organizations and your NGO is not a suitable client.
Or you couldn’t see the potential benefits for your organization?
Whatever the reason might be, the truth is that every business that wants to prosper in 2022, regardless of its operations, needs to consider relying on managed IT services.
The benefits of solutions like cloud computing are numerous and constantly growing. And to prove that point, in the following lines, we’re going to take a look at five ways managed IT services can transform your organization for the better.
Let’s get into it!
- Efficient Scalability
Have you ever had that life-changing idea but lacked the infrastructure resources to bring it to life? Well, cloud-based solutions remove this roadblock to innovation as they allow you to scale your resources at any given time. Most of the Managed Service Providers out there also offer advanced functionality that can help a nonprofit realize its ideas promptly.
Cloud solutions allow nonprofits to increase capacity automatically in order to meet unexpected surges in demand and scale out new services in a short period of time. For comparison, it might take months to procure additional on-premises servers.
Cloud computing will allow your organization to cut back on IT costs significantly while accessing world-class technology.
Furthermore, moving to the cloud will make your employees’ lives a lot easier by improving and simplifying the work on administrative tasks. Instead of constantly worrying about handling printed documents, ensuring that everyone has the latest version of them, or wasting time sending them by post, all of your files, documents, and invoices can be stored in the cloud. Firstly, all members will have 24/7 virtual access to the last version of the documents, and secondly, you don’t risk a paper document including personal data falling into wrong hands.
And lastly, this will free up a huge chunk of time for your team to focus on more impactful tasks that are going to help the entire organization move forward.
- Get Access to Essential Data
Cloud-based technology will help you to derive valuable insights from big data. As we mentioned already, moving to the cloud will lower the cost and increase the scalability of data processing, allowing even the smallest of organizations to unlock the value across multiple data sources. So it’s not a size thing when it comes to whether you will benefit from a cloud solution or not. Access to data and accompanying analytical tools are must-haves for nonprofits to obtain real-time insights into programs, donors, funding, stakeholder, performance, and sustainability.
- Access Data from Anywhere and Break Down Borders
Cloud data storage allows data to be accessed from anywhere through secure connections. When your data is digitally stored, restoring or backing it up is much simpler than traditional storage.
On top of that, cloud services break down many of the physical barriers which stand in the way of voluntary work. As all of your data is up in the cloud, your entire team can access it directly from their mobile devices. As a result, volunteers can better support people in need. Moreover, since time zones and location are no longer limiting factors, volunteers from remote areas can participate as well.
We can even take it a step further – working with a Managed Service Provider will allow you to easily collaborate with other organizations as the data can be shared between organizations everywhere.
- Achieve Unparalleled Confidentiality and Security
Companies should ensure that highly confidential data is safeguarded, but NGOs should go even further. People they support are often facing extremely vulnerable situations, and keeping their information private is often a matter of life or death. For that reason, and also because NGOs need to meet legal regulations like the GDPR, HIPAA, CCPA, etc, secure data processing practices need to be in place.
Adopting cloud computing can help you mitigate the risk of your data being stolen or lost. High-level encryption and cloud security minimize the chances that such misfortune can occur. In addition, off-site storage eliminates the need to monitor your network or worry about physical damage to equipment.
Data recovery and backup solutions are also available through cloud technology in the event of a security breach. Unexpected events and malicious attacks do happen, but the best thing about cloud technologies is that your data will be waiting for you safely in the cloud. This ensures business continuity.
