You’ve concluded that cloud is the only way forward. You’ve done all your homework. You’ve even migrated critical data and workloads to the cloud. But then you stumble upon not one, not two, but many roadblocks along the cloud journey – from the inability to scale your cloud infrastructure as easily as you’d imagined to ending up with unmanageable cloud bills at the end of each month.
You begin to wonder where you went wrong, but do not always end up with a convincing answer. Likely, it’s not because of your inability to leverage the benefits of cloud technology, but because you lack the capability and skill sets to align your cloud infrastructure with your business needs – something only Managed Cloud Services can fulfill!
Moving to the cloud, although a Herculean task, is just the tip of the iceberg. The real struggle begins once you’ve successfully accomplished the mammoth task of migrating your data, apps, and processes to the cloud. Efficiently maintaining the workloads and ensuring your cloud infrastructure is aligned with evolving business and market needs is far more difficult.
At the same time, achieving and maintaining secure and dynamic cloud capabilities, so you can operate your business without a hitch and grow with confidence, is not possible – unless you have the right tools and competencies in place to help you efficiently monitor and manage your cloud resources. Here are some challenges that are rampant with in-house cloud management:
The cloud has revolutionized the way businesses operate. By eliminating the need for upfront capital investment in bulky on-premises systems, the technology has made way for highly available, scalable, and flexible business operations that allow organizations to easily accomplish their goals. And although cloud makes it easy to access on-demand resources as and when needed, it requires the backing of qualified professionals to mitigate risk, improve responsiveness, and enable continuous upkeep and maintenance.
If you find your teams struggling to keep up with the constant deluge of cloud updates and new functionality, you need to opt for ways to more effectively manage change and innovation. Since any inexperience with cloud technology can lead to misconfigurations, along with potentially costly errors, embracing Managed Cloud Services can open doors to efficient and continuous cloud management. Through modern design and management practices, these services enable appropriate and continuous scaling, as needs are presented.
Complementing popular cloud services like Amazon and Azure, they help in leveraging the latest innovations and capabilities while also adding an extra layer of risk management, data protection, and long-term strategic planning. Investing in Managed Cloud Services means you can:
As more and more companies move to the cloud, a modern approach to the continuous management of cloud resources is the need of the hour. No matter what industry you belong to, the whirlwind pace of technology innovations means you are forced to compete with new organizations and on a new playing field — every single day.
If you want to exploit cloud technologies to the fullest and successfully adopt a cloud-first transformation mindset, you need to change the way you run and manage your cloud infrastructure. Opting for Managed Cloud Services is a great way to have a game plan in place that’s powered by a cloud-centric approach and a cloud-first culture.
Managed Cloud Services not only bring your business up to speed with the latest in cloud, they can also help you maintain that speed while keeping up with today’s disruptions with agility and resilience. Contact a Managed Cloud Provider today!
