The Future is Cloud

Cloud has come a long way in the past decade, from being a key buzzword in everyone’s strategies but not much else to ultimately being a default expectation for most organisations. The tech behind the Cloud has also evolved, morphing into:

  • Platform as a Service (PaaS)
  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
  • Software as a Service)

According to research from the Cloud Industry Forum the overall cloud adoption rate over the last 3 years has been 88%, with almost 9/10 companies opting to adopt (the cloud).

Since risual’s creation in 2005, we’ve been delivering successful Cloud Transformation engagements and last year (2019) we re-vamped our portfolio to reflect our experience and the latest technologies. Our Cloud Transformation pillar is split into two topics: Modern Workplace and Cloud Platform.

The days of struggling with on-premise technology are gone!

Struggling each time your devices need a refresh or system needs updating or changing in someone is no longer an option. Spending high capital expenditure costs to maintain on-premise systems that don’t have enough storage, technicality or redundancy for your business is just a silly decision.

With the cloud, it allows employees to become much more innovative with the systems and to ensure security and optimisation throughout.

Cloud Transformation gives you countless possibilities: improvements to customer experiences, streamlining operating models and increasing innovation. It’s such a huge topic to discuss, from Office 365 Productivity to Modern Workplace Strategy there is so much to cover within Cloud.

Going into the future we want to drive cloud transformations across our clients, empowering them to understand the art of the possible to really optimise the latest and greatest Microsoft tech.

risual Managed Services had developed multiple offerings to supplement our Cloud Transformation engagements: platform support, licensing optimisation, security guidance etc… 5 or 6 years ago it would have been about just lifting and shifting to the Cloud but now to really drive value it is about so much more than that.
