Here we are, finally! My favorite subject! One of the best reasons for your company to move its financial planning and budgeting applications to the cloud is how environmentally friendly it is! You can access your application from anywhere which translates to less transportation. Fewer roundtrip airplane trips and fewer car rentals equals less gas consumption. Financial planning in the cloud is good for the environment and your bottom line.
Also, your IT department no longer has to support and sustain servers or perform activities related to patching or maintenance which translates to less energy used and fewer servers retired during upgrades. Eliminating even a few servers makes a big difference in energy usage and carbon emissions. To maintain a typical server requires not only energy to power the server, but also a controlled environment to keep everything at a stable temperature. Another benefit of these changes is reduced maintenance costs which you can read about in part III of this series.
Undoubtedly, these are all major benefits to the environment. If more companies moved their applications to the cloud, just imagine the impact!
