The evolution of cloud technology is redefining your business. You may have joined the cloud movement already. Or perhaps you’re attempting to put off cloud adoption as long as possible. Either way, your business will be implementing cloud services – in part or in full – in the next few years, whether you want to or not.
To prepare for the inevitable, your first step for transitioning is to understand where you are on the cloud spectrum.
Every company falls into one of three categories when considering a transition to the Cloud
1. Cloud Enthusiast
You are familiar with the cloud, you have already implemented some cloud applications, and are ready to move forward with a full-scale transition.
2. Cloud Explorer
You know the cloud has some advanced capabilities and are ready to explore the way it can help resolve the challenges your company faces.
3. Cloud Resister
You are aware there is an issue with the capacity, flexibility and security of your current on-premise server but aren’t even considering the cloud as a viable solution to your problems. See our previous article Ways to work Smarter Through the Cloud.
Each of these cloud statuses have one thing in common. They each need a reliable partner for successfully moving into a cloud-based IT environment.
