4 Tips for Seamlessly Switching to the Cloud

August 25, 2016

Is your organization ready to enter the next generation of data storage? It's time to transition to cloud technologies. While this may seem like a daunting task, it doesn't have to be – our Delaware County cloud service provider is here to give you some advice on making the switch painless:

  1. Assess your current infrastructure before making any changes. The first step in your journey to an all-cloud environment should be to take an inventory of the infrastructure your company is using at the moment. Determine which elements can be replaced with a cloud-based option, and for ones that can't, consider phasing them out. Still, remember that it is okay to maintain parts of your current infrastructure if it's best for your business.
  2. Create a detailed migration strategy. The more prepared your company is, the easier the transition to the cloud will be. Take time to plan out exactly when you'd like to make the switch, how much it will cost and how it will affect your business operations.
  3. Make sure workers are well-informed about the cloud. As with any major business change, your employees will most likely need to learn some new skills in order to effectively use the cloud. Therefore, you should budget time and money for employee training when deploying cloud technologies at your organization.
  4. Select a trustworthy Delaware County cloud service provider. Hiring a reliable IT company to assist your business with changing to a cloud-based infrastructure will make the process much easier. With an IT company on your side, skillful representatives who can troubleshoot issues, train your associates on using cloud technologies and provide any other necessary support will always be just a phone call away.

With adequate planning, your small- or mid-sized business will be able to successfully switch from its current infrastructure to the cloud.
