Ready to soar in the cloud?
Over the past few years, there has been a lot of hype and excitement over the potential value of cloud computing, or “The Cloud,” for the business environment.
The biggest problem has been that most people really don’t understand what cloud computing is or how it works. If you’re still not 100 percent sure what it is, you’re not alone.
Let me help you cut through the clutter: In its simplest form, cloud computing is using the internet to access your files, emails, data, applications, and more. Instead of storing your files, applications, and other data on a computer or server at your office, you’re storing them on high-speed, high-security servers that you can access anytime, anywhere, via the Internet on nearly any device.
Deciding to migrate some or all of your IT services to the cloud is a big decision, and it takes the right technology strategist to ensure you make good choices that align with your business processes.
The cloud is a very attractive option for businesses these days. Many are migrating their email, applications, phone systems, or even their entire IT infrastructure to a cloud platform, giving them a level of scalability and mobility that they’ve never experienced before.
Popular cloud services these days include Office 365, Google Apps, hosted business applications such as ERP systems, accounting software, EMR systems, and email.
It’s working really well for some companies to put their entire infrastructure in the cloud; however, most companies are still relying on a hybrid setup where some pieces are in the cloud and some are on-premise.
Deciding which of your company’s IT components belong in the cloud depends entirely on how your company operates and what results you’re hoping to gain.
The cloud isn’t right for every business, so before someone recommends that you transition to the cloud, they should ask a lot of questions to understand how your business operates and what you’re hoping to accomplish.
The goal is to make sure the cloud can actually help you achieve your business objectives!
