OGEL IT discuss the migration to Cloud services and how this has helped to level the playing field between SMEs and larger companies
In a previous report we established why migration to Cloud services was a smart business move for organisations of all sizes, and how the rapid growth and investment in cloud technologies skyrocketed in just two years, with 70% of global organisations increasing their spend on cloud architecture.
This shift has empowered SME’s and provided them with the tools and technology to compete head on with some of the world’s biggest firms, closing the digital achievement gap and providing equal opportunities in every industry.
But the benefits of cloud technology do not stop with a simple migration to its services. Cloud technology is agile, flexible, evergreen and making the most of these features will, in turn see your business soar into levels of competition you once thought unimaginable, and at a fraction of the cost you envisioned.
A lot of organisations will adopt cloud technologies and invest thousands of pounds into the migration of their platform, infrastructure and services, but then stop at that. They become static. However, a smart investor will realise their potential to build upon its technologies and discover new opportunities and options the cloud has to offer for an ever-changing business model.
This is referred to as being a Cloud Continuum Competitor, where an organisation will use their cloud services as a future operating model, and in doing so will see higher cost reductions as they are continuously changing their environment to suit their usage, and reimagining the roll the cloud plays in their organisation to best suit their business.
The first step in becoming a Cloud Continuum Competitor would be to ensure the right type of cloud and cloud-based services are chosen, then leveraging the technologies provided within to get the best return on investment. If done correctly, this will enable an organisation to reimagine and reinvent their business structure, through continuous innovation powered by various types of cloud capabilities that operate effortlessly together.
So, with all that being said, why are some organisations still lagging behind in what seems to be the future of conducting business. With all the benefits the cloud has to offer for organisations of all sizes, and the cost of a migration project truly reflected in the size of a business due to its scalability features, where you only pay for what you use, why are there still business running off legacy systems?
Well, the answer is simply that it is a challenge and a daunting task for some when the scope of work is realised. Still, those that are accepting this challenge and pushing forward with cloud engagements are quickly becoming leaders in their industry and overtaking some of their earlier, larger competitors. And the way these organisations have been able to seamlessly migrate their services is, through the use of a Managed Service Provider (MSP).
