The business environment has changed a lot over the past eighteen odd months, and things are still shaping up as we write this post. Right now, its all about re-imagining your business in the new normal and the channels through which value will be delivered to customers.
It has indeed been a daunting journey over the past few months. Remote work has proved to be the most insurmountable challenge for most enterprises. Thanks to Cloud Service Providers (CSP) like dinCloud that made all this happen in a very short time span.
However, top level business leaders such as CEOs are still overwhelmed with the technology options out there, and how can their individual business become a part of this journey. The major concerns revolve around years and decades old legacy systems.
The problem with legacy systems is that processes are very intricately interwoven and it becomes nearly impossible to track the impact of any changes that are made to the existing IT infrastructure or processes. This is acting as a major deterrent for business leaders.
In this post, we will address some of the major questions business leaders have on their minds when contemplating a move to the Cloud. We will also address how dinCloud’s solutions fit into this whole cloud migration journey.
Is Enterprise data secure in the Cloud?
This is one factor that is by far the strongest deterrent for CEOs when moving to the Cloud. What raises the stakes even further is the ever increasing regulations around data and the “business cost” of data breaches or cyber attacks.
Leading Cloud Service Providers (CSP) like dinCloud employ multi layered security mechanisms to keep your enterprise data at bay from cyber predators. These include firewalls, encryption, intrusion prevention, ransomware protection and more.
These multiple cyber security mechanisms, coupled with independent compliance certifications and a Two Factor Authentication (2FA) solution make dinCloud’s infrastructure highly secure for your valuable enterprise data.
What about my existing / legacy infrastructure?
This is a relatively tricky area, because ideally, legacy processes should be re-factored to deliver the optimal results over the cloud. However, this daunting challenge instead prevents enterprises from making the move to the Cloud altogether.
With specialized CSPs like dinCloud, we take you along the entire cloud migration journey. In most cases, we try for a “lift and shift” approach, in which you at least reap the core benefits of the cloud that include flexibility, scalability and enhanced security.
How to Choose the Right Service and Cloud Provider?
When it comes to cloud services and the CSPs out there, you have loads of choice. However, not every cloud provider out there might be suited to your needs. So, you have to undertake an objective analysis of the offerings out there and choose the best one.
As a business leader, you will do best if you lay out your priorities beforehand, and then “shop” for the best provider out there. The core differentiators for dinCloud include security, customizability, ease of management via dinManage and Flat Rate Pricing.
At the end of the day, what matters the most in enabling a successful cloud migration is a “cloud first approach”. This means that the Cloud should form the mainstay of your operations to realize the true value that it can potentially deliver to your enterprise.
