Services and Solutions
Whether you’re moving your data, application or other business elements from an organization’s onsite computers to the cloud, or moving them from one cloud environment to another, the benefits of cloud computing has become common knowledge in today’s world. Many companies and even data centers were causalities of the super storm Sandy in 2012. They had never been able to recover their data caused by on-premise infrastructure and damaged equipment. That forced IT professionals to rethink cloud computing and accelerated its process. Today, moving to cloud has become every company’s ultimate goal and it has become an essential ingredient of modern IT. The cloud will become the default option for everything from storage to computing to apps. However, as of the end of 2015, 68% of enterprises run less than a fifth of their application portfolios in the cloud; and 55% of enterprises report that a significant portion of their existing application portfolios are not in the cloud yet. In the United States, only 30% of small businesses have adopted cloud computing in some degree. Many companies claim their applications are “in the cloud”, but they are nothing more than single-tenant applications that lack the important and required building blocks of successful cloud technology: multi-tenancy, global redundancy, virtualization, elasticity, and scalability. They have not fully taken advantage of the benefits that cloud provides.
One of the biggest challenges companies will have to face is how best to integrate their legacy systems into the cloud. This is especially true for those businesses that have been around for a long time. Moving to cloud represents a major change.
The challenge is also for employees. Moving to the cloud is not simply moving existing systems or applications into a new platform; companies are changing the way they work in order to reap the full benefit.
There are many cloud providers to choose from, and each comes with their unique services and insights. Moving applications, infrastructure and other resources to the cloud isn’t nearly as easy as some vendors claim in the marketing materials.This is a partnership businesses will want to have for many years to come, they have to find one that best fits.

How can you manage your IT department effectively with lower costs while keeping up with the constantly changing digital world? The never-ending emergence of new products and numerous platforms leave the end users more questions than answers. The technological needs within your organization system and a network environment will directly impact your organization’s productivity. Rather than hiring a team of trained IT experts to maintain your network infrastructure, email hosting, web hosting, data storage, data backup, network security and other IT concerns, you can save your business time and budget by outsourcing these services to a managed service provider.
Converting to an all cloud integration application system is not always the best solution for all enterprises; nor is continuing with out-of-date legacy systems. Hybrid cloud integration provides the perfect middle ground solution for enterprises, assuring that data from on-premises legacy systems can integrate with cloud data, ensuring businesses have the full advantage when driving business forward.
