Why Housing Associations Aren’t Realizing the Full Benefit of Cloud Technology

Cyferd’s cloud-native technology applications help to split apps up into micro-services, making it easier for housing associations to get the full benefit of cloud and continuously integrate and deploy new features and benefit from elastic compute functionality.

Cloud-Native Digital Transformation Platform

The Benefits

Cloud adoption has become a necessity for many businesses; Gartner notes that cloud “continues to evolve from a market disruptor to the expected approach for IT”. In our previous article on the Cyferd website, we’ve even discussed the benefits of cloud development in healthcare, where we include considerations like accessibility and infrastructure complexity when adopting cloud. 

However, while the adoption of cloud is integral to modernizing business, many industries still struggle with implementing it properly; Gartner suggests that “less than one-third of enterprises have a documented cloud strategy”. This can be due to things like security concerns or difficulty shifting complex legacy systems to the cloud.

The fallout of the Covid-19 pandemic has shown that the housing industry still needs to modernize several areas, including the widespread implementation of the cloud. In an article by AdEPT, the housing industry has had a unique response to the Covid-19 pandemic, in part because housing associations may have felt an obligation or “duty of care” to their tenants – who are increasingly spending more time at home than ever. People became more reliant on their homes not only as a space for living, but one for working. With people spending more time than ever in their homes, housing institutions have had pressure to boost their digital transformation, and this means that cloud development has never been more important.

Cyferd and cloud technology for housing associations

The Cyferd Platform is designed to drive operational efficiency for housing associations through no-code cloud development. Cyferd enables users to build an ecosystem of cloud-native apps; users can build upon, extend, or replace previously integrated data, consolidating different areas of housing management. Cyferd enables users to reap the benefits of digital transformation, minus the complexity; ultimately, cloud development can help housing associations improve a proactive rather than reactive approach, helping put digital business solutions within reach.
