3 Benefits of Managed Cloud Computing

Your business runs on information. Without comprehensive cloud management, your business is susceptible to security threats, data loss and costly downtime. Whether you have a multi-tenant or hybrid cloud environment, cloud managed service providers possess extensive cloud knowledge to support your environment or fill in the management gaps.

Often, internal IT departments don’t possess the skills to effectively monitor and maintain a cloud environment. In these situations, a company hires a third-party cloud managed services provider to manage cloud security, computing, storage, network operations, application stacks, vendors and more.

Depending on your IT needs, cloud managed services can also handle monitoring and reporting, performance testing, backup and recovery and more. With fixed monthly pricing, hiring a cloud managed services provider is often less expensive than an in-house team.

Like finances, data requires the focused attention of the C-suite and the Board.

Enterprise Digital Transformation

Big Data is likely to be a key element in the digital transformation taking hold in the enterprise, but there are still questions as to how it will influence future business processes and what steps to take now to ensure it provides optimal support in a fast-changing economy. Legacy IT is largely unprepared to meet the requirements of the new digital business: application cycle times measured in months, if not years; siloed infrastructure that prohibits organizations from viewing their data holistically; performance bottlenecks that impact end-user experience in a world that demands constant availability and response times; rigid architectures that force organizations to make forklift upgrades as requirements change; and traditional provisioning processes in which IT is often seen as a barrier rather than an enabler for the business.
