What Is Cloud Sourcing?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Cloud sourcing is similar to outsourcing, wherein a company employs a cloud service provider to perform some supposedly “in-house” tasks, and has the flexibility to be paid per usage, unlike outsourcing providers that are paid either in monthly, quarterly, or yearly terms. This allows companies to align their outsourcing needs to their business growth and either expand or scale down by demand. Fewer commitments and more advantages, that’s exactly what a business needs. Here’s how cloud sourcing does its magic in optimising daily business processes:

1. The Need for Excess Capacity

Some companies need a big amount of data storage in an instant but do not intend to keep it for a long time. They want to avoid hefty maintenance fees and just pay “as they go”. Cloud sourcing providers enable you to do just that. However, the challenge to this setup is collaborating data from the in-house data centre and the cloud storage. Segregating data and security might be challenge, so proper organisation and coordination must be implemented when opting for two separate technologies.

2. Disrupting The Need for Information Technology Outsourcing (ITO)

ITO can end up becoming too costly. Companies employing ITO are now discovering how cloud sourcing can help them stay at the top of their game and at the same time, reduce their operational costs. Hiring an ITO means granting that outsourcing provider a significant level of control and access over your company’s data. Companies want to withdraw that power from them and keep it “in-house” and they can do just that by using a public cloud provider and shifting to co-location facilities. Co-location means that the servers and devices of a company are housed securely in a professional data centre, bundled with other beneficial services, but still controlled and managed by the company, and not outsourced to other talents.

3. Everything as a Service

Cloud sourcing makes all kinds of services readily available and accessible to businesses. The cloud continues to grow more and more capabilities and makes them available to companies anytime, for only the duration that they need. Companies look forward to outsourcing several types of services which is not their main competency, to avoid hiring in-house departments and save resources. An example would be this famous cloud sourcing provider for Human Resources, which takes care of the recruitment, payroll, reviews, benefits, and trainings of employees. We all know that many companies out there are not capable of establishing a real beneficial HR structure, and so this kind of cloud sourcing can help them realise their HR goals without the need to develop a physical HR team in their location.

Software and apps are also brought to life through cloud sourcing, wherein all elements needed to create, execute, and optimise user experiences are all collaborated through the cloud. From computing, to locating, to communicating and paying—all actions and transactions are conveniently accessible and done swiftly because all functions are seamlessly integrated into the cloud.

Truly, the rich functionality of cloud sourcing saves businesses a lot of time, space, and money, leading to better efficiency and productivity. Those who are just planning to start out a business venture need not worry too, for there are so many cloud sourcing “vendors” which are able to supply all that is needed to launch and operate a business. Exceptionally beneficial features, little to no downtime, less commitments, full-time support, less risks—all these are offered by cloud sourcing. What are you waiting for?
