Simpson Associates have commissioned server clusters for many customers, usually to begin project development whilst awaiting new hardware. Some organisations create backup and recovery environments, while others create SharePoint sites that are responsive to the demands of flexible business requirements. In all cases, the flexibility of the available configurations means that it is possible to commission server power as it is needed, rather than making a capital purchase that accounts for the future – thereby aligning the costs more closely with the benefits.
The Cloud is a valid choice for production environments too. We have customers who have their data warehouse environment built entirely in the Cloud, with Business Intelligence suites providing information to all company stakeholders. For some organisations, a hybrid configuration allows them to gain the maximum return on their current infrastructure; while for others, their requirement to see key performance indicators on tablets and smartphones has driven their migration to the Cloud.
It is projected that by next year (2020), 24% of IT Application spend will be based on cloud deployments and that by 2025, 80% of enterprise IT, will have moved to the Cloud, reflecting the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) nature of today’s office environment. Applications like Office 365 are key drivers of this direction of travel.
We are experts in cloud migration strategy and can help your organisation understand how the Cloud can be the best choice to meet your business requirements. From there we can demonstrate how Microsoft Azure can benefit your business and enable you to quickly realise return on investment.
Our expert team can guide you through the process, ensuring that we use the best technology and solution to suit your organisation.
