Cloud Options



Unlock a comprehensive IT strategy aligned to your business needs

All organisations have a business strategy.
The role of IT goes hand in hand with the business to be an enabler. Therefore, it is essential to have a cohesive IT/cloud strategy aligned to the business requirements.

It is possible to have the view that no strategy is necessary to implement IT in the cloud, you just use it. But this will cause significant issues going forward and therefore pain to the business.

There are several variations and combinations in cloud computing. These range from a single cloud solution for all needs, to no cloud required at all. This is not a one size fits all solution. There are also other questions that need answering before the optimum fit for any organisation can be understood.

Some of these are:

How secure does the information need to be?
Where do my legacy applications fit in?
What about data compliance?
Where does business continuity fit in?
What different skills are needed?

As a public cloud MSP (managed services provider) we will take you through your cloud options.
