Enterprise Services (Cloud)

How to provide enterprise class services in a heavily mobile environment.  We lean towards cloud services whenever possible for several reasons.
  • Op Ex instead of Cap Ex makes costs easier to understand and can usually save money
  • Rapidly scalable and elastic means we only pay for what we use
  • Good providers can deliver very reliable service
  • Good providers can deliver very secure services
  • Contingency management is no longer tightly coupled with protecting a physical location 
  • Cloud services can be designed and deployed much faster than on premise solutions
  • We are in the business of providing business services not procuring, building and maintaining IT equipment
  • Properly managing a raised floor data center is expensive, hard and increasingly unnecessary
  •  A large technically diverse and experienced IT staff is not a core business nor a core competency of the organizations we work for
