Running an in-house computer system puts serious limitations on your short and long-term flexibility, transitioning to a private cloud will provide you with a new level of flexibility, allowing your computer system to keep up with changing business demands.
More people are working from home than ever before. Companies that have legacy systems are struggling to cope with this change. They need to upgrade away from these in-house servers, and a private cloud has the potential to solve all of their problems.
