From local to cloud: a wise choice to drive sustainable business development

Migrating to the cloud is gradually becoming a crucial step for enterprises to move towards sustainable development

With the increasingly urgent need for enterprises to pursue modernization, improve competitiveness and profitability, migrating to the cloud has become a necessary measure for enterprise transformation and upgrading. The cloud environment can endow enterprises with higher levels of operational efficiency, streamlined internal processes, data security, cost reduction, and the ability to keep systems up-to-date with the latest technologies.


But its value goes beyond that, and migrating to the cloud is gradually becoming a crucial step for enterprises to move towards sustainable development. The transition of business operations to the cloud is no longer just a technological trend, but also a catalyst for achieving sustainable change.


The reason behind this is that by entrusting IT infrastructure to cloud service providers, enterprises can not only optimize their own operations, but also significantly reduce carbon emissions, thereby substantially promoting sustainable development.


“Sustainable Cloud”



Currently, 80% of the energy consumed on Earth is polluted, resulting in over 75% of global greenhouse gas emissions and nearly 90% of carbon dioxide emissions. To avoid the most serious consequences of climate change, experts warn that such emissions must be reduced by at least half by 2030 and completely eliminated by 2050.


Faced with this urgent reality, more and more enterprises are gradually realizing that the technology provided by cloud environments can become the core support for their sustainable strategies.


Relocating local servers to efficient and renewable energy driven data centers can significantly reduce the carbon emissions burden of maintaining physical infrastructure.


Meanwhile, optimizing data management and application development processes can significantly reduce a company’s carbon footprint. According to research by consulting firm Accenture, companies that go to the cloud earlier can reduce carbon emissions by up to 84%.

In addition, the cloud environment ensures the efficiency of energy use through its design optimized energy usage strategies, such as the use of renewable energy and efficient cooling systems in cloud data centers.


The direct result of doing so is that enterprises not only save a lot of energy expenses, but also contribute to the protection of natural environmental resources. The same Accenture report shows that companies that successfully transition to the cloud can achieve an average 65% reduction in energy consumption.


In addition, “cloud” has other advantages, such as greatly reducing the generation of electronic waste by reducing reliance on local hardware maintenance; Moreover, cloud technology strongly supports the popularization of remote work mode, reducing the related carbon emissions generated by employees’ daily commuting.


The Green IT Era



The era of green IT has arrived! For enterprises, one of the key steps in conducting such cloud migration is to choose the right supplier – a supplier with a strong commitment to environmental protection and recognized performance in implementing sustainable solutions.


Among the many vendors on the market, SAP, an industry leader with 50 years of experience in enterprise software development, fully meets these requirements. Its “Move to Cloud” strategy aims to help businesses fully leverage the advantages of cloud based enterprise level technologies, including significantly reducing carbon emissions.


As a SAP Platinum partner and practitioner of the SAP cloud market for a long time, Acloudear also helps enterprises build a green and sustainable digital system in the cloud through a series of cloud solutions. Carbon data is integrated into enterprise resources, and through continuous carbon management and technological innovation, “human, financial, and carbon” integration and green sustainable development are achieved, meeting future ESG compliance requirements and ensuring sustainable development.


Turning the clouds at the time



Nowadays, the trend of cloud migration is increasing day by day!


According to Gartner’s forecast, global public cloud service spending will increase by 20.4% by 2024. Forrester predicts that by 2026, the market value will exceed the $1 billion mark.


For enterprises that have not yet considered adopting cloud solutions, this is undoubtedly the best time to seize opportunities, achieve modernization and upgrading, and continuously improve their sustainable development capabilities.


Because “going to the cloud” is not only a technological innovation that promotes business development, but also a rare opportunity for enterprises to actively participate in building a greener and more resilient world.
