As more and more companies choose to migrate their IT to a cloud solution, it’s becoming more apparent how this choice relieves some of the challenges IT departments are facing today. Not only is technology evolving in a rapid-fire manner, but many IT departments are trying to juggle too many balls.
If you’re on the fence about moving your in-house IT environment to a private cloud hosting solution, here are the top 4 challenges that this choice can solve.
- Skyrocketing capital expenditures. If you’re constantly pitching for capital expenditures to keep up with your increasing IT needs, you know that moving the line item from a capital expenditure to an operating expense makes it easier to manage. Shifting to a private cloud hosting solution relieves you from runaway capital expenditures costs, too.
- Long buying process. Along with #1 above, a long buying process for hardware and software will always keep your business behind the curve when it comes to adopting new technology. With a private cloud hosting solution, you can easily get additional services to scale your business fast, almost at the click of a button.
- Hiring more talent. Another challenge you face with ever-evolving technological advances is finding the talent to adopt new technology and make it work for your business. On the other hand, training your current IT team in new technology can be just as prohibitive as hiring more talent because of the price of training combined with the loss of productivity during the period it takes to get up to speed. The staff at a private cloud hosting provider is already highly trained and experienced in the latest and greatest technology.
- Disaster recovery isn’t top notch. If you have an in-house IT structure and back up to tape, you’re vulnerable to a natural disaster. While this may work for you right now, if something should ever occur, it could have devastating effects on your business operations, enough to put the business out of commission. Private cloud hosting excels at disaster recovery and backups. It’s one of their many strengths.
