We all have our “cloud” stories, right? What does cloud mean to me? My cloud “story” definitely looks different from my engineering or marketing colleagues.
Our customers have many cloud stories too. As we’ve seen above, engineering’s view of cloud is well defined…ugly, but well defined. Marketing’s view of cloud is slick, attractive, easy to digest and easy on the eyes. But what about licensing? Yes, I know, I can hear your brain popping.
Licensing - Each cloud solution is unique – are you looking for on-premise, off-premise, hybrid, public cloud, private cloud, off premise dedicated...which solution is the best for your organization’s needs? How do you know? How do you leverage your current investment to get to the cloud? My licensing and strategic vendor teams are positioned to get you to the cloud in the most cost effective way.
We painstakingly fine-tuned the art of software licensing for the cloud. Your unique journey into the cloud entails a holistic understanding of your existing infrastructure and what your goals are. For instance, our understanding of a customer’s existing software investment has made it possible to leverage some obscure licensing rights and leverage current investment.
Because we take a holistic approach to assessing your journey into the cloud, we are able to ask the right questions; questions you may not think of asking. Much like Henry Ford said, “had I asked my customers for what they wanted, they would have said a bigger computer”.
Still wondering if you’re ready for the cloud? Let us take a look at what you’ve got, what you want to do, and when you want to do it. We can provide an assessment for you and provide a roadmap for getting your organization into the cloud.
Stay-tuned…next week we’ll look at Hosted Virtual Desktop.
