As the adoption of Cloud-based IT and communications continues to gather momentum, organisations of all types are looking to exploit the inherent benefits of flexibility, scalability and security at a predictable, manageable cost.
Around 95% of UK organisations are using the Cloud in some form or another. If you think you are one of the 5% who aren’t, just stop and think for a minute. If your organisation is using DropBox, Google Analytics, Web Ex, Twitter, LinkedIn, Salesforce or Office 365 then you’re one of the 95%.
Predictable low cost expenditure model
One of the most appealing aspects of cloud or hosted solutions is the predictable, low-operational costs. Your Class Networks Account Manager will work with you to look at the most appropriate product and price for your needs.
If you have already invested in on premise hardware, we will work with you to make the most of your current investment before migrating to the Cloud. It makes financial sense to exploit the advantages of a hybrid model and for some organisations it can provide that extra back up layer of security.
Class Network Cloud solutions include:
- hosted servers
- hosted desktop/Cloud computing
- hosted voice
- web hosting
- cyber security – anti-malware
- data storage and backup
- unified communications – multiple connectivity options – smartphones – call management – call centre
- video collaboration
Why is it important to you?
Using the Cloud offers significant benefits to any organisation that is looking to improve the scalability, flexibility and availability of its core IT and communication services. Without large infrastructure or hardware cost it is available on-demand at a predictable, utility-based price.
What do you want to achieve?
Before you make a considered decision to migrate any of your core IT or communications services to the Cloud, think about how your organisation works and what you are hoping to achieve in the future.
- Do you need to stay agile as an organisation?
- Do you need to avoid capital expenditure?
- Do you have remote workers?
- Manage sensitive information or need to avoid risk?
What benefits can moving to the cloud mean for your business?
Thankfully, you no longer need to buy hardware equipment, which takes up physical space but can also require a large upfront financial investment. Equipment depreciates in value, you have servicing and replacement costs and eventually it gets out dated. Working on the Cloud cuts these out making your company more nimble, efficient and cost–effective.
Improving efficiency and driving down cost is a constant business challenge. We are all starting to understand the strategic role Communications Technology plays in developing and enhancing core business functions.
