National Look Up at the Sky Day – April 14, 2023

Share This ARTICLE


National Look Up At The Sky Day is observed on April 14th of every year. The day encourages everyone to spend the time looking up at that beautiful sky. When was the last time you stopped and took a look up? You may find some airplanes, a flock of birds flying around, the shining sun, some dazzling stars, or you may even have seen Sysdyne and our customers — we’ve been in the Cloud since 2008!

Fun Fact: a cloud can weigh approximately 1.1 million pounds – That’s 271.18 cubic yards of concrete!

Cloud computing is everywhere, and it’s not just for streaming shows or downloading apps. Cloud services are now integral to many businesses, from small startups to large corporations and every enterprise in between. With so many benefits to being in the cloud, if your organization hasn’t made the switch yet, you’re missing out.

For starters, cloud services offer enhanced security for businesses, including:

  • No security gaps due to outdated on-premises software
  • Access to a dedicated support team via your cloud services provider
  • 24/7 monitoring by cloud services providers and systems

Combined, these enhancements can significantly improve your business security across the board. The basic principles of cloud security guarantee regular updates and a constant focus on improving security measures to keep pace with evolving threats.

Cloud services provide the manpower or automated systems necessary to monitor your business’s IT infrastructure day and night. Instead of hiring in-house IT, your ready mix professionals can do what they do best, whether it’s batch, dispatch, delivery management, inventory management, or anything else.

Bottom line: cloud services are head and shoulders above what most organizations can field themselves when it comes to delivering a secure environment.

Reduced Business Costs

Cloud services can give you everything you need in an out-of-the-box solution. IT framework or infrastructure updates? Cloud services providers handle it. Security updates? Your cloud service provider has an experienced team on hand to ensure everything goes well. What about ensuring that a new software package rolls out smoothly across all your computers? Again, your cloud services provider should handle that for you.

Since you don’t need the manpower or labor to do all those tasks, you can instead redirect cash savings elsewhere or simply save the difference — either or, ultimately cloud services save your business money in the long term.

Easier Scaling

As your business grows, you’ll need to scale your operations, offerings and systems. With cloud services, you don’t need to purchase an entirely new software package, transfer all your mix designs to a new computer, build a server farm on your own premises, or have to take other costly steps. Instead, the cloud allows you to scale up to meet your needs quickly and easily. This easy scaling is a massive benefit for any organization, but especially for those enterprises on the cusp of transitioning from small to medium-sized businesses!

Greater Flexibility

Similarly, cloud services allow for much more flexibility when it comes to requesting resources, downloading software, or tackling new digital challenges. Since you can get the software or digital tools you need to solve your problems from your cloud services provider, your team doesn’t need to spend time researching and finding a specific software product or solution. More flexibility directly translates to greater productivity and workplace efficiency for your brand, ultimately strengthening your bottom line.

Automatic Updates

Cloud services take care of all the automatic updates your organization would have to overview and handle otherwise. By handling automatic updates, cloud services prevent you from suffering from unexpected digital security flaws and free up time to focus on other aspects of your business. It’s one less thing your team has to worry about.
