Moving business applications out of an on premises situation has many benefits. Cost efficiency, reduction of maintenance requirements, flexibility and scalability of resources, on demand user administration, and off site user support. These are just a few of the immediate benefits businesses are seeing once they make the decisions to move ahead with decommissioning all or part of their in house physical servers.
For many enterprise businesses, this can be a huge decision and often a leap of faith. Fear of the unknown often hinders the move ahead into cloud hosting critical business applications. Finding an experienced and reliable hosting partner is critical in seeing a successful outcome.
Here at AEC Cloud, we know what you need before you do. We have been hosting applications and data for some of the largest construction companies in the world for over 15 years. We can help guide you through the maze of cloud hosting and determine exactly what your company needs today, and what it will need tomorrow.
Below are some things to consider when migrating your applications and data to the cloud.
A mix of service: Private Cloud. Public Cloud. Hybrid Cloud. Databases. Data storage. Applications as a service. Virtual Desktops. The possibilities are almost endless in the configurations we can provide what will work best for your individual situation.
Focusing on your core business: You are not in the IT business. You need to spend the majority of your energy focusing on generating new business opportunities, not about what server model and hard drive your company needs. Take these decisions out of your agenda and let professionals like AEC Cloud do the heavy lifting for your IT needs.
Scalability up and down: Your business grows, and sometime it contracts. You shouldn't be paying for services that you are not using. Scalability gives your business the opportunity to increase users and data storage with that huge contract you just landed. It also give you the ability to scale back down when the project is over. Budgets can be flexible according to business demand without being locked into a fixed user scenario.
Backups and maintenance: These are both tasks that should not be part of your daily agenda. They should be performed in the background without you ever knowing about it. AEC Cloud works behind the scenes to make sure your apps are up to date and your data is secure.
User support: Your employee lost their password or cannot open an application. Do you need to have a full time staff person to handle this? Our support team is on 24/7 to help make sure your team has access to the enterprise business applications they use everyday.
Mobility: Do you have staff in the field that need access to critical business data and applications? Moving your business to the "Cloud" offers that access anywhere, anytime. No matter where your employees are located, users are no longer tied to one terminal at a desk in the main office. A user's desktop can be accessed from anywhere, anytime allowing productivity gains and an increase in employee job performance.
