Cloud Migration: Operational Costs
Critical elements of operational costs consist of unit price of infrastructure and matching supply and demand. In addition, other components include finding a pathway to real-time scalability, employing an elastic cost base, and transparency.
Productivity is measured utilizing two essential factors: wait time for infrastructure, and accessibility to the mission critical applications that you would otherwise have to build and maintain. On average, workforce productivity improves 30-50% after a sizable cloud migration takes place.
Cost Avoidance Utilizing Cloud Migration Services
Mitigating the need for hardware refreshes and recurring maintenance remain the key contributors to cost avoidance. Equipment cost and time required to execute a large refresh or data center upgrade bears little interest from companies looking for the best bang for their buck.
Reducing your organization’s risk profile correlates in reducing the cost of risk mitigation. With multiple Regions comprising even more Availability Zones (AZs), AWS and Azure have the global footprint to continuously improve uptime, thereby lessening risk-related expenses.
Business Agility with Cloud Migration Services
Migrating to the cloud correlates to increasing your overall operational agility. This enables you to proactively plan for market conditions more quickly. A flexible cloud infrastructure improves efficiencies for activities such as expanding into new markets, selling lines of your business, and acquiring available assets that offer a competitive advantage.
Microsoft Office 365 Migrations
With the dynamically growing use of cloud computing, more and more businesses are making the migration to Microsoft Office 365 for its robust cloud-based communication, collaboration and presentation abilities.
Migrating systems can cause headaches and frustration as you try to navigate new and old platforms. For example, employees might feel left out of the loop if they’re suddenly told to change email systems. Also, you need to ensure your data is secure during the move, which take anywhere from a few weeks to several months.
When it comes time to migrate to Office 365, there are multiple options to consider. Strategic Communications assists you in choosing the right option for your business.
