There’s also flexibility for the organisation as well, as it is much easier to scale your IT operations up and down when the staffing level increases or decreases.
Security is something that can be a real headache for companies, both when it comes to people attempting to access your data and the possibility of data loss through accident or failure.

This can significantly reduce your IT expenditure. In addition, you will also be using less power so you should find that your electricity bill puts a smile on your face as well.
