he Cloud became a commodity in the ICT market with players like Amazon, Google and Microsoft offering products that are affordable and easy to deploy. Rapid changes in business and business sentiment require a highly agile environment in which cost can be effectively controlled as can be security. Achieving readiness to harness the most agile infrastructure means for almost any business today being cloud-ready.
Your server and/or network landscape is nearing its useful lifespan. Instead of re-investing into the same setup you believe climbing the next level of infrastructure agility is the way to the cloud. Still, some of the hardware is still well within an investment cycle. Hardware vendors lining up at your doorstep and promising radical cost benefits. So, what do you do?
If you are a small, medium or large size corporation, the solution is out there. You can jump straight into application provision out of the cloud (Software-as-a-Service, SaaS) or select the various Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions available in the market. If your security requirements are elevated you may use a virtual cloud-based private network. If you are a larger entity, various Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) providers are at your disposal. And you are not limited to these silos. You may mix and match to your heart’s content.
Using cloud technology discreetly and addressing the correct challenges can save you a substantial amount of money while at the same time enabling future agility in your organisation. Furthermore, by adopting such technologies you may elevate your organisation to the next level of mobility and digitisation allowing you to ride the wave of the current technology revolution.
