What business tech can you move to the cloud? It might be easier to list the services you can’t host in the cloud. Virtually any application can be hosted in the cloud. And, these services might be more varied than you would expect: SITOC also provide cloud-based telephone systems with the same benefits.
You probably won’t get a perfect cup of tea made in the cloud though.
Hosting services in the Cloud is the perfect choice to eliminate the management headaches and running costs of maintaining your own equipment. Even better, Cloud IT provides the ability to react to your ever-changing needs, on a near-instant basis. Services can be created, expanded, contracted and ended on-demand, all without the need for investment in traditional hardware.
With monthly payments, the Cloud also frees up your capital and provides a stable cost for running IT. Whilst these financial benefits should not be overlooked, Cloud services have paved the way for possibly the biggest changes to flexible working in recent years. Allowing staff to work from their location of choice has never been easier. In an age where flexible working is recognised as delivering better productivity and staff satisfaction, the Cloud has a lot to offer.
Your data is a precious asset, so the location where it is stored should be up to the task. SITOC leverage partnerships with enterprise-grade data centres, including Microsoft Azure. We make sure that 3 copies of data are held as a bare-minimum and stay within the EU always. Our partners adhere to specific ISO and industry regulations concerning data storage. They provide resilience: protecting power supplies, security, cooling, fire control etc, far superior to anything that could be built on most business premises.
Virtually any organisation can benefit from Cloud IT services, regardless of your size or industry. Whilst some prefer to maintain a mixture of on-premise and Cloud services, the benefits can be realised by all.
Moving to the cloud is a simple enough concept, but should be planned for carefully. SITOC have many years’ experience in delivering cloud migration projects; we have learnt the pitfalls and can help plan for a successful migration by using our proven project delivery protocols. For example, we can test and provide sandbox environments to detect and avoid any pitfalls in the process. We understand that each organisation has different needs, we also have the knowledge to help you choose the right service.
