Your on-premises IT infrastructure may feel like a 1,000 pound Gorilla. After all, it requires license renewals, server maintenance, backups, anti-virus and security add-ons, support, and over time, memory & storage expansion. The good news is that you don’t have to continue to work this way – devoting precious time, money, and energy to your outdated, hardware-intensive system. Moving to the cloud with an IT expert can easily solve this, and save you from constant worry and headaches.
Your infrastructure is truly the backbone of your business, and if it goes down under your watch, your whole organization will undoubtedly experience the impacts.
Think about it this way. Your company has a specialized provider that manages your 401K and benefits administration because you need an expert who won’t make a mistake, jeopardizing precious financial or medical information.
When it comes to your IT, why would you take the same risk by staying with the same system and managing it yourself?
3 signs that your IT infrastructure needs an overhaul
- You recently experienced an IT failure.
Things went upside down and your whole organization suffered the consequences as a result of a major event, such as an in-house server going down. With cloud, there’s no more server or storage hardware on premise to fail and your remaining IT infrastructure, such as desktops, firewalls and switches, would be supported via the cloud remotely – no need for expensive in-house IT expertise.
- You’re experiencing IT issues now and feel highly frustrated.
You see it starting to creep up every day. You may be experiencing slow performance, or your backups aren’t running as planned. The writing is on the wall, so don’t run the risk of having a catastrophic event turn your business upside down. Cloud computing keeps your data secure, ensures 100% access to information, and protects your organization against today’s world of hackers, threats, and breaches.
- You know that you need to move to the cloud, but you don’t know how.
You need to be quick to adopt new trends. You need to be flexible and put technology to work for you, but knowing how to do this is a whole different ballgame. A managed service provider can put the right solution in place, moving your entire infrastructure into the cloud for you. That removes the burden of figuring out what applications make sense, and who is going to plan the whole project.
Whether it’s end-of-life equipment, slow performance, or lost data, the velocity of your business slows down if you are constantly managing your own infrastructure. The vicious cycle has to stop. It’s time to transform your business by moving to the cloud with a managed services provider.
