Achieve the full potential of cloud computing
Cloud migration involves the process of moving data or other business elements to the cloud where computing, storage, software and platform services are transferred to the cloud for access.
Cloud computing is engaging to many organizations due to it's scalability. Cloud migration simplifies the adoption of flexible cloud computing which offers big advantages to enterprises. But from a telecom and IT network perspective, there are challenges that can create unexpected costs.
Controling Shadow IT
Shadow IT is when employees bypass an organization’s IT processes, driving up costs and creating security risks. Because cloud computing makes it easier to deploy IT resources and applications, it can increase the risks of Shadow IT. As a recent PWC report points out, Shadow IT can create “a gateway to new and unknown risks, spiraling growth of operating costs, and potential increase in redundancies. ”
Managing cloud network connectivity
Cloud-based networks disrupt the role of traditional telecom carriers as gatekeepers to the WAN. New service providers, such as Amazon Web Services, Equinix, and others have emerged. While this creates opportunities for enterprises, customers must learn to manage these vendors, their services and their new pricing models.
The Cloud Age Advantage
Cloud Age can help meet these challenges. We address all types of cloud-based services, including Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS).
More importantly, as experts in network design, optimization and performance improvement, we offer a comprehensive approach – one that focuses on people and processes, as well as technology.
