With so much discussion and debate about whether to use cloud or on-premise solutions, it can be difficult to decide. In this new blog & video series, I'm helping narrow down the top 6 things to consider before making this important decision for your business. Today, I'm covering Consideration #3: Existing Infrastructure.
#3 Existing Infrastructure
When you’ve invested a lot of time and resources into an existing infrastructure, and the time comes for that infrastructure to change, it can be difficult to decide how best to move forward. Moving some existing IT systems to the cloud can be especially beneficial for companies whose offices don’t lend themselves to be the most secure data centers. If the company is leasing space, they may not have control over sprinkler systems, power, and even access to the building at off-hours. However, moving those systems is not always simple. Legacy applications may need the on-premise equipment to run at peak efficiency or particular technology stacks may require complicated set-up in the cloud.
Stay tuned for the next post when I discuss Consideration #4: Integration.
