Companies and businesses of all sizes and in all sectors are moving from traditional types of hosting services to cloud-based applications and software. The cloud offers several advantages, including full scalability, increased security, and limitless resources to optimize performance, even with heavy or very cyclical workloads and requirements.
Migrating to the cloud is not a simple process. For any business, planning and consulting with a cloud solution provider before starting the migration is a simple way to avoid glitches, downtime, and loss of features for the website, business, and the end-users.
When to Bring in the Experts
The ideal time to start working with a cloud solution provider is at the planning stage. For existing businesses, the cloud provider helps the internal IT team to develop a strategic migration plan and to evaluate how current software will operate with cloud-based technologies.
New businesses benefit from early work with a cloud solution provider in recognizing the most effective cloud-based technologies and choosing the correct cloud infrastructure. This could be a private, public, or hybrid cloud, or a specialized cloud that meets industry security or protocol regulations and requirements.
Once the cloud technology is in place, there is still a need for ongoing management services. Outsourcing this role, including monitoring, administrating, and analytics, frees up the internal IT team to focus on the day-to-day operations. It also ensures the best possible professionals are working for your business to increase productivity, efficiency, and the end-user experience.
