Why Cloud Technology? Why Now?
Kaizen Business Philosophy Is at the Heart of Cloud Technology
The Japanese business philosophy of kaizen, translated as “continuous improvement,” is baked into cloud technology due to the ease of seamless and perpetual updates. Keeping up with technology advancements becomes a no-brainer with cloud-based technology.
The “IT closet” essentially becomes obsolete. Associated expenses cease to exist, resulting in bottom-line savings along with increased freedom and new capabilities that add value to your business.
Cloud-based technologies are designed to optimize live integrations through APIs with a world of applications to multiply the utility of your technology—cross-platform and omnichannel.
Cloud technology is a critical competitive advantage in today’s business world, where increasingly more business happens at home, on the go, here, there, and everywhere.
Adding employees, teams, and even mergers and acquisitions are easier and more expedient with cloud technology like desktop as a service and identity and access management.
Continuous Improvement, “Kaizen,” Incrementally
Every business is at least minimally “in the cloud” through its email service and website. This Hybrid Cloud model, where public and private cloud technology is mixed with legacy systems, is still commonplace in some industries. However, increasingly, the rationale for supporting legacy systems and on-premises technology infrastructure is being challenged.
Even On-Premises Mainstays Can Be Better in the Cloud
A long-time mainstay of on-premises technology is the data server. Many businesses struggle to embrace the value of cloud data hosting over on-premise, but the arguments for cloud storage are increasingly hard to refute.
On-premises storage creates expenses through the need for periodic hardware investments and the ongoing cost of an administrator and technician. Additionally, the need for 24/7 physical security is a constant cost required to avoid a catastrophic data loss event. A lack of financial or staff resources prevents most businesses from attaining the level of security offered by a reliable cloud hosting service such as Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Getting Help Navigating the Cloud
There are a variety of considerations in choosing the best and most cost-effective cloud solutions for your business. Specific factors such as network assessments and connectivity must be evaluated against technology requirements to vet services successfully. Cloud Technology Services can provide the expertise to advise confidently and follow through with migration and implementation in your business.
No “Consulting” Fees
Start with a telecom audit which is a free service for IPC customers. We identify areas your business can save by reviewing telecommunications contracts and invoices, software licensing, cloud spend, and more. On average, we save clients 20% by eliminating some of your wasteful technology-related spend. Rest assured, every assessment is approached from a technology-agnostic mindset.
