Does The Cloud Have A Silver Lining For Your Business?
Do you need to update your infrastructure, servers, or applications?
Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7 are at the end of support, so you should upgrade your environment to maintain the highest levels of security and operability. Server hardware has an approximate lifespan of 5 years, so a simple software upgrade may not be possible as the hardware may not be sufficient or compatible.
Do you have branch offices, remote users, or applications/data that need to be accessed from locations other than your office (e.g. work orders, inventory, email)?
Remote offices and staff require additional resources and bandwidth at your main site. Maintaining proper security across multiple sites and devices can be complex and expensive. If all of your data/applications are in a single location, a single failure at that location can halt productivity for all of your offices and staff.
Are you required to be compliant with certain regulations (e.g. HIPAA, PCI-DSS, GDPR)?
Building and maintaining a compliant infrastructure or identity and access management can be extremely difficult and costly.
Do you have a disaster recovery plan that can get you back into operation within hours or minutes, with minimal loss of data?
Many ‘backup solutions’ can take significant time resources for recovery to normal operations. Creating a robust and resilient system based on physical infrastructure can be prohibitively expensive.
Do you currently use SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) applications, such as SalesForce, Box, Quicken Online, or Microsoft 365?
Designing and maintaining secure authentication and access policies to multiple SaaS services manually is time-consuming and may leave gaps in your security.
If you Answered Yes:
While you might not be quite cloud ready, it is a good time to start planning!
The Cloud is an option for you–especially Cloud services such as Azure Active Directory. You should plan for increased migration to the Cloud as your business grows and you use more SaaS applications.
A hybrid cloud solution–integrating on-premise and Azure cloud environments–is something you should be pursuing.
