As AWS mentions, on “Six Advantages of Cloud Computing” (1), cloud bring unique opportunities to the business:

Cloud Services
  • Trade capital expense for variable expense – Instead of having to invest heavily in data centers and servers before you know how you’re going to use them, you only pay when you consume computing resources, and pay only for how much you consume.
  • Benefit from massive economies of scale – By using cloud computing, you can achieve a lower variable cost than you can get on your own. Because usage from hundreds of thousands of customers is aggregated in the cloud, providers such as AWS can achieve higher economies of scale, which translates into lower pay-as-you-go prices.
  • Stop guessing capacity– Eliminate guessing on your infrastructure capacity needs. When you make a capacity decision before deploying an application, you often end up either sitting on expensive idle resources or dealing with limited capacity. With cloud computing, these problems go away. You can access as much or as little capacity as you need and scale up and down as required with only a few minutes’ notice.
  • Increase speed and agility– In a cloud computing environment, new IT resources are only a click away, which means that you reduce the time to make those resources available to your developers from weeks to just minutes. This results in a dramatic increase in agility for the organization since the cost and time it takes to experiment and develop is significantly lower.
  • Stop spending money running and maintaining data centers – Focus on projects that differentiate your business, not the infrastructure. Cloud computing lets you focus on your customers, rather than on the heavy lifting of racking, stacking, and powering servers.
  • Go global in minutes – Easily deploy your application in multiple regions around the world with just a few clicks. This means you can provide lower latency and a better experience for your customers at a minimal cost.

Our Cloud Experience expands across solutions, to mention a few:

Cloud Migration. One of the most common conversations that we heard on the market. Behind a Cloud Migration strategy, needs to be inclusive of understanding of the business outcome that the customer is looking to achieve. Sometimes, that could be related to increase business resiliency, improve systems availability, scalability. 

Off-Site Backup/DR. We live in a time where data is the biggest asset for most (if not all) of our customers. Preserving and protecting that data is a top concern for our customers. At this point, it is not about having or not a backup strategy (You need one!), but having an OnPrem backup is not enough, and Cloud services enable the organizations to create an off-site replication that can expand with the business needs.

Virtual Desktops. Depending on the customer’s needs and security strategy, Virtual Desktop is an excellent strategy to simplify operations and increase the security of your business assets. And most of the cloud providers now offer similar services, so if you are already using AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud Platform (GCP), new services can be added.

Security Connectivity. Cloud offerings have been maturing rapidly, and today all of them offer multiple secure connections. From dedicated links, to secure access by MPLS VPNs, to Site to Site VPNs.

Software as a Service (SaaS) or Marketplace. SaaS (Ex. Webex) is gaining adoption every minute in the industry, the fact that you can consume a service on-demand and with a low footprint, is helping business to be more agile and try strategies faster with lower costs. Marketplaces are a similar way to deploy your software solutions (ex. Tableau, ESRI, Cisco Firewalls, Palo Alto Firewalls, Data Bases, etc.) in your private cloud environment. In many cases, you don’t need to procure the license, only pay for the time you need the solution.
