The Cloud - Your most efficient infrastructure is no infrastructure
The cloud is an infinitely scalable, flexible, adaptable and cost-effective means of acquiring the infrastructure your business needs. With no infrastructure investment, ongoing maintenance costs or expensive upgrades required, it’s a managed infrastructure that’s as easy for you as no infrastructure.
Moving to the cloud will free your business from:
- costly on-premises hardware
- tying capital into a depreciating asset
- inflexible and restrictive solutions.
The cloud is not one service, but a choice of services. Depending on the needs of your business, you can choose:
Software as a Service (SaaS).
Access the software you need, online, by paying a subscription. You will always be
running the latest version and will not pay for upgrades.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
Secure and accessible data storage for your biggest data sets.
Platform as a Service (PaaS)
A combination of SaaS and IaaS, to give you a platform to build on.
Integration Platform as a Service (IPaaS)
Bringing together all your different data to make it more accessible, more usable and more valuable.
The Agile approach
The cloud is one of the foundations of the Agile Information Management (AIM) architecture. We understand how to make the most of it to optimize our efficiency and performance, and we can do the same for your business.
Most businesses adopt a ‘cloud first’ policy with hybrid implementations. This means asking, for every new infrastructure project:
Q1 Can it be operated in the cloud?
Q2 Will the cloud provide the necessary level of security?
Q3 How do we go about implementing it in the cloud?
For your next project, if the answers to the first two questions are ‘yes’, then the answer to Q3 is ‘Agile Solutions’.
Working closely with your team, we can:
