Many organisations ask the wrong question – instead of asking “where should I put my data?”, we believe the question should be “what do you want to do with your data?”
For a number of years now, cloud computing has been one of the most hyped subjects from the board room to IT operations. The extremely security-conscious or risk adverse have been hesitant to move their data and workloads into the cloud while others have embraced the public cloud.
Getting the Most out of the Cloud
In our conversations and business dealings we are generally seeing organisations settling on a hybrid strategy. In other words, organisations are leveraging the most appropriate IT services – both existing IT and from the Cloud. It’s generally accepted that when it comes to IT, one size does not fit all. For the cloud to have maximum impact within a business it cannot be held in isolation but must be integrated with existing IT. There are a number of factors that will influence your IT decision – in short, it is all about selecting the right infrastructure platform for the right application.
At DG, we do not try to force square pegs into round holes but rather assist you to select the best solution to meet the needs of the business – for the most part this will include a combination of both public cloud platforms with a private cloud platform. Our Cloud Advisory Services can assist organisations identify opportunities that may benefit from cloud-based services, as well as those that should remain in-house or in a private cloud.
Our experienced and skilled team of consultants are able to design, deploy and test both on premise and off premise services and solutions as well as then managing them for you on an ongoing basis freeing up your staff to focus on doing what your business does best and not managing IT.
