A monumental shift has happened in how we work. No longer do organizations feel the need to bring employees together in an office space every day. Instead, according to a survey by PwC, 83% of executives say that the shift to remote work during the pandemic has been a success for their organization.
With that remote work, however, changes must be made with the technology that organizations rely on. They will need a better infrastructure to ensure that teams can easily collaborate from various locations and to ensure they can quickly access everything they need even when they are not in the office.
This has most organizations turning to a strong cloud infrastructure to make remote work possible. If you are not sure where to start when it comes to moving to the cloud, a managed IT services provider can learn more about your needs and find the cloud solution that is best for you.
These providers will:
Help you decide whether a public, private, or hybrid cloud is best for your business
If you make the move to a private cloud your business cloud infrastructure will need to be entirely managed by your internal resources or by the managed IT services company you hire. A public cloud, on the other hand, provides its services via a network that many organizations can have access to — think Amazon Web Services. And finally, a hybrid option is typically a combination of both.
Help you with your data location
Most organizations have a lot of data — customer info, organizational intelligence, etc. Where will all that reside when you move to the cloud? Your managed IT services provider will help you find the best cloud station that enables you to move about spontaneously, rapidly, and with immediate signs of progress.
Help you organize your cloud our migration priorities
The good news is that when you make the move to the cloud you don’t need to do it all at once. Instead, you may decide your organization should migrate one component or one set of data at a time. Your managed IT services provider will work with you to create this schedule so that it works before your and your entire organization. If you decide on the other hand that a full migration is what is best, the company you work with will be able to manage that process as well without anything falling through the cracks.
Managing the move to the cloud can be a complicated process for any company. But with a managed IT services provider on your team, it will be something that becomes a major boon for your team and your customers.
