Most companies have decided they need the business agility and want the cost savings that come when moving to the cloud. But with the bewildering amount of contradictory information floating around on the Internet, not many really understand exactly what that means or what it entails. Companies considering migrating face inconsistencies, making it difficult to separate fact from fiction. When considering moving to the cloud to power your organization, you need to know the facts. Your business depends on it. Ready to learn which business cloud myths you may have thought were true—but aren’t? Read on.
Myth 3: You have to move everything to the cloud; it is an all-or-nothing scenario.
While early cloud supporters proclaimed the cloud as the Holy Grail, no one really advocated fork-lifting your entire enterprise to the cloud over the weekend. Most implementations start with a hybrid approach, moving a single application, like email, and growing from there. The hybrid cloud creates a consistent platform that spans data centers and the cloud, simplifying IT and delivering apps and data to users on virtually any device, anywhere. It gives you control to deliver the computing power and capabilities that business demands, and to scale up or down as needed without wasting your onsite technology investments. Many companies are moving productivity workloads to the cloud; the path for each is different, and the time it takes for those migrations varies. We can help you move workloads such as file sync and share or email first, and then help you figure out the right long-term plan for more difficult or larger projects.
