IT based organizations looking to grow are making huge investments and expanding their in-house IT infrastructure. As it turns out, the cost involved in owning and maintaining the infrastructure (hardware and software) is prohibitive for any enterprise. Shrinking IT budgets continues to be a cause of concern for many organizations; as a result they are coming under increased pressure to cut down total cost of ownership in order to stay in the business.
At a time when time and money is becoming a scare commodity for many organizations, accomplishing this task is no ordinary feat, because they have to do so without hurting too much their revenues. With all these barriers in place, it doesn’t come as a surprise why many organizations aren’t getting the kind of results they expect from their investments in improving business.
So organizations need a solution that will not only help them keep a check on their spending when it comes to investing in technology but also can help them overcome the barriers of traditional IT infrastructure. Many organizations are now moving to cloud computing technology as it presents promising prospects.
If we notice one thing organizations that rely on legacy infrastructure spend a majority of their time on managing issues every time they invest in technology upgrade. It starts with acquiring and deploying hardware equipment that takes anywhere between weeks to months. It demands lot of time and resources on the part of organizations while they are involved in ordering the equipment, assembling, configuring and finally installation.
Cloud computing does away all this complexity. There is no need to invest in acquiring, installing, configuring, maintaining servers, databases and other such components. All it takes is an internet connection and everything you thought you can’t do function without all the hardware and the infrastructure is now made possible through a software that is accessible round the clock. Most importantly there is no waiting time involved in availing the cloud solutions, as they are immediately available no sooner they have subscribed for them.
Scalability when it comes to on-premises has always been seen as a somewhat complicated process that involves lots of planning and organizing because the kind of hardware equipment needed always depends on the requirements of an application. If there is a sudden spike in traffic for app, then there is a need to upgrade on-premises hardware.
Unfortunately organizations spend a majority of their time managing issues arising out of post upgrade process before they can get on with actual work. Managing legacy upgrade issues can be complex and difficult. Many companies face these post upgrade challenges besides the added burden of maintenance which discourages IT teams from trying out new things with technology because even little changes could things could spiral out of control. And that means organizations don’t get time to respond to new opportunities or invest time in enhancing existing processes. Fortunately this is never a problem with cloud service, as organizations can quickly scale up or down faster than the conventional method of upgrade. It doesn’t come as a surprise that one of the key benefits of cloud is scalability and flexibility it offers. By far the best thing about cloud service is that it does away with what is called as dependency between a specific application and specific hardware.
More organizations are discovering how cloud solutions enable them to tackle the challenge of digital transformation disruption.
Digital landscape has evolved. Conventional, on-premises IT infrastructure are simply unable to provide the agility, elasticity or pay-as-you-go efficiency that today’s business demand. But moving to cloud is not as simple as 1-2-3 go; the move to cloud computing requires an incremental, well-governed approach to rapidly deliver business results while ensuring minimal disruption to existing applications and workloads.
