Managing data in the cloud can reduce information complexity challenges

Posted by Justin Hesser on October 4, 2013

Storing data in the cloud has proven to be a successful strategy across a wide range of industries and it can benefit many companies of different sizes. That’s its primary advantage over on-premise data management. But there are other benefits that allow data managers to control their information more effectively in the cloud rather than on-site.

Perhaps one of the most important elements to consider is the ability to remove the complexity of data management in an on-premise environment. The infrastructure typically found on-site doesn’t provide the flexibility businesses need. In a cloud environment, and the help of a custom database software system, businesses can successfully sort and organize their data in a way so it can be found quickly when needed without wasting a tremendous amount of resources.

An article in Tech Republic recently talked about the cloud’s ability to remove complexity from big data. Nick Hardiman, the article’s author, talked about the use of a relational database management system on site and how it can be improved with the help of the cloud.

“If the infrastructure is on-premise, there are traditional problems to overcome,” he said. “Managing on-premise RDBMS is expensive and time consuming.”

FileMaker developers can create a system for you to properly manage all of your information in a controlled environment. These solutions are flexible and scalable, so when your data volume grows (and trust us, it will) you will be properly prepared. Hosting the solution in the cloud removes some of the challenges pertaining to having to process data in an on-site infrastructure and improve the overall effectiveness of your data processing.
