Lack of expertise
Without expert guidance, IT decisions can be made based on latest buzzwords, rather than what is best for your company, and mistakes can be costly to rectify.
- A cloud manged service can help ensure your cloud technology streamlines, secures and enhances your work rather than distracts from it.
High upfront costs
Legacy infrastructure is generally based on large, CapEx upfront costs, resulting in wasted expenditure when the solution can't be scaled down according to needs.
- The cloud is based on monthly OpEx costing, which means you only pay for what you use and can scale up or down as requirements change.
- Cloud enables you to avoid over-provisioning in your environment and instead burst into public cloud when demand increases.
In-house platforms often suffer from a lack of agility, making it hard to adapt to suit changing needs, such as the sudden switch to remote working. Older platforms can also make integrating with latest technologies difficult.
- Cloud technologies provide flexibility and mobility, enabling you to quickly support users' needs, no matter their location or device.
- Updates are also automatic, saving IT Teams time & enabling users to benefit from the latest technology.
Ensuring your sensitive data is protected against threats wherever it sits can be challenging.
- In line with your specific requirements, we can ensure your data and users are protected across on-premises, cloud, and hybrid environments.
- Cloud security is not tied to a physical location, your security covers your employees no matter where they're working.
