Free Your Business From Locked Down Software

The arrival of the cloud means businesses are now able to let go of the agonizing – and often costly – annual ritual of assessing which software licenses need to be renewed, which ones can lapse, and which ones can wait another year.

It’s a freeing experience from the days when businesses lurched from sluggish aging technology to super speed overnight. Like a slick electric car, the Cloud allows you run your business at full throttle month after month, year after year. The only recharge you need is a subscription.

EXPERIENCE THE CLOUD’S SILVER LINING WITH CAPEX SAVINGS

What are you really paying to operate, maintain and upgrade an on-premises solution over a typical five-year period? What other costs are involved in a cloud solution?

Traditionally, having software was an extension of your overall capital expenditures, with heavy investment in infrastructure and licenses. Now the cloud moves all of those items to your OpEx, making more capital available to your business for true revenue generation.

It’s a bit like making the shift from owning a generator for your business to paying for electricity – you pay for what you use, which means you can scale up and down as your business demands.

DON’T MAKE A MISTAKE WHEN RENEWAL TIME ARRIVES

Eventually, every software you need will be in the cloud. But today, products still vary in cloud maturity, so it’s good to determine how to best maximize your savings and flexibility and make those moves accordingly.

BDO’S CLOUD STRATEGY TAKES YOU FURTHER, FASTER

Moving to the cloud has its benefits, but with so much of your business tied to on-premise systems, it’s important the cloud transition be conducted in the right order and with careful oversight. Some businesses may want to move email first, others storage, and for others, the first order of business could be building a custom app in the cloud.

At BDO IT Solutions, our cloud consulting services provide you with an audit and assessment of your current state. Our consultants will then make solution recommendations that will help you solve your operational challenges, while advancing and protecting your business interests.

TRANSITION TO THE CLOUD ON YOUR TIME

Not interested in a full cloud migration? No problem. Our plans can seamlessly combine on-premise solutions with off-premise, like moving email to the cloud using Office 365 or Microsoft Managed email, freeing up more space on your on-premise server for locally stored solutions. Our thorough audits will help you determine what needs to be migrated to the cloud today, tomorrow, or at the right time for you in the future.

PEACE OF MIND, FREE OF CHARGE

Our robust cloud strategy will ensure you’re connected to tools that give you the enterprise features you expect, and the functionality you require to maintain your intellectual property and data continuity.

Once our assessment is done and a strategy outlined, we don’t just walk away. Our team assists with implementation, working with an agreed-upon change management structure.
