Cloud explained to
Managing IT infrastructure is a costly and time-consuming activity; particularly if you are a global business. You need to balance budget constraints with security and compliance, deploy projects quickly to maintain business agility, integrate new acquisitions into the company and support your business’ international growth.
Cloud computing can help you achieve this balance, by freeing up resources that you spend on maintaining IT infrastructure. This allows you to focus on the strategic and value-added activities that can meet your business’ needs.
mastering IT budgets
With pay-as-you-use pricing on infrastructure, you can control budgets much more effectively. You can absorb business activity fluctuations that change computing power or storage requirements completely transparently to end users.
Application management is also made easier, because all applications are deployed centrally in the cloud. This also means that new features and security updates are automatically provided to all users. In addition, with cloud computing you can quickly deploy enterprise-class IT services to new locations or ventures.
keep your users under control
The explosion in consumer smart devices and apps has set the expectations of your employees high. But it also puts your business at risk: if they don’t have access to the services they want to use, they might simply source them elsewhere, and even move sensitive data into the public cloud. We can help you provide your users with the tools you want them to use, on devices you can manage, via a private application store and workspace tailored to your needs.
