Why You Need Cloud Services
Ditch the Hardware
Cloud Services are a great way for businesses to save money on hardware, storage and software applications and provide the ability to work anywhere, anytime across a variety of Internet-connected devices.
Added Cloud Services benefits include improved collaboration as users access, work on and save files to the Cloud, as well as increased security for data backed up offsite.
Increased business productivity and efficiency is realized as Cloud platforms and applications are regularly updated with the newest features and security improvements, benefiting all users at once.
Ditch the Hardware
Cloud Services allow your technology to evolve to keep pace with your business needs, and provide several ways to leverage the promise of the Cloud.
Cloud Services enable convenient, on-demand network access to online computing resources such as networks, servers, storage, applications, and services that can be rapidly provisioned and utilized.
These services are typically device-and platform-independent, allowing them to be accessed from any Internet-connected device through a web browser or downloadable application. These entry points allow complete interactivity, within Cloud applications by users, including accessing, uploading, and downloading documents and data, creating and sharing files, and other normal business functions.
Cloud Services allow integration and single sign-on functionality between different applications that can share data and business intelligence, ushering in a new level of business efficiency and productivity.
Four Steps to Transform your Business
A discovery meeting will be conducted to understand your business needs to prepare a requirements document. This phase should take no longer than a week to schedule and complete.
Following the business needs analysis, we will conduct onsite technology and security assessments to allow us to document the existing computing infrastructure and security posture. Depending on the size and complexity of your infrastructure, this could take as little as a few days to a few weeks.
Using the information gathered during the business needs analysis, technology, and security assessments, we will architect the appropriate cloud services solution to meet your requirements and design a project plan. This phase should take no longer than a few weeks to complete.
Once the cloud services project plan has been approved, scheduling of the implementation can begin. Once initial testing and QA is complete, your staff is trained on how to use your new Cloud Services. Once training is complete, a go-live date can be established. Depending on the project’s complexity and other factors, this phase could take a few weeks to several months.
