Cloud has become a buzz word but what does it actually mean and is it appropriate for your business?
As usual in the world of IT, there is no simple answer to the first question, however the answer to the second question is “yes, almost certainly”.
Why is there no simple answer to the first? That is because cloud solutions come in many shapes and forms and have been developed to satisfy a range of business requirements.
The entry level is to use a market leading provider such as Microsoft, Amazon, Google, etc. Their products are simple to implement and offer a “one size fits all” solution.
DSM Group holds the Microsoft Small and Midmarket Cloud Solutions & Datacentre competencies proving we have the manufacturer’s approval to deliver solutions based around their cloud offerings such as Microsoft Office 365 and have plenty of satisfied customers as evidence of our success.
But what if a “one size fits all” solution doesn’t match your specific business needs? DSM Group can design and implement tailored solutions using best-of-breed products to offer the appropriate resilience, accessibility, performance, security, flexibility and affordability which can be on-premise, cloud based or (most likely) a hybrid combination.
For example, we can provide a fully managed system including hardware, software and support on a rental arrangement to enable smooth cash flow and avoid painful capital expenditure.
And, with our very own high specification data centre operated under our full control, you can be safe in the knowledge of where your data and applications are hosted and who can get to them.
