We have come a long, long way with technology and it doesn’t show any signs of stopping! With the emergence of new AI, the possibilities of what we can do with data are becoming limitless – great, right? Well yes, it is, but, as a decision maker, we feel for you! With all the cloud options and routes available on the market today, it gives you more and more things to think about. Every route you take has pros and cons and it can be taxing and time-consuming to weigh them up whilst your time could be better spent elsewhere. We want to keep things simple but show you real value in your investments and future projects.
When it comes to cloud for example, in some cases, simply lifting and shifting your infrastructure to the cloud is not always the best approach. If you don’t see the value then what’s the point? A Platform as a Service (PaaS) option may suite your business needs better and allow you to deliver everything from simple cloud-based apps to sophisticated cloud-enabled enterprise applications, it’s flexible and agile with room to manoeuvre your apps as you see fit. It is an efficient way to avoid expense and complexity of buying new software licenses. To put it simply you can manage the apps and services and we can take care of the rest, also you can see added value by only paying for what you use!
Shift your IT delivery to a culture of continuous improvement to efficiency and innovation that keeps up with the speed of an evolving business. Transform your experiences for both your end user and customers by trialling and deploying applications hosted in the cloud. Begin to strategise and realise cost saving benefits and create a robust cloud infrastructure within the hub your IT services are built around. You can use hybrid functionality to connect to on-premise servers, but the move to the cloud is all about enabling you to focus on building for the future, rather than ‘keeping the lights on’.
Whilst there are cost savings to be had from moving to the cloud, true value comes from a journey through the cloud and using it as a platform to build, test and deploy new solutions to keep up with developing markets.
A lot of organisations are currently experimenting with Azure, and may have moved a few services to the cloud, and a few on premise. Others have completely ‘lifted and shifted’ their estate to the cloud, and are now sitting waiting to see the results of this move. In actuality, if you simply pick up your current estate, and just move the same thing into the cloud it will not add much value to your organisation or save much money.
You need to view Azure as the hub your IT is built around, you can use hybrid functionality to connect to on-premise servers, but the move to the cloud is all about enabling you to focus on building for the future, rather than ‘keeping the lights on’.
With emerging cyber threats and high-profile household names falling victim to data breaches and legislation that brings data into the public eye, organisations are taking to the cloud in order to protect their infrastructure.
