With the approaching End-of-Life support for Microsoft Windows Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 in January 2020 and July 2019 respectively, there's an opportunity for businesses to think about moving to the cloud. But you've got to wrap your head around it. By evaluating daily operations and processes, you may find that cloud computing is the way to go.

Considering a move to the cloud?

Below are a few questions to ask yourself when considering upgrading to the cloud:

  • Do you currently view IT as an expense or facilitator of growth?

  • Are you searching for scaleable, flexible technology?

  • Are you looking for more mobile capabilities to assist your employees?

  • Do you want capabilities to streamline business processes and increase productivity?

When considering the business challenges you have, think about the benefits of the cloud. Cloud services can help to control risk and reduce unforeseen budget expenses. It can boost cost efficiency by reducing the need to purchase equipment and staff for an in-house data center. It's also scalable, allowing you to scale up or down based on needs and budget. Cloud services also make team-work easier and more efficient by allowing team members to work from anywhere on any device; therefore, speeding up projects and improving customer service. Lastly, cloud computing offers disaster recovery advantages, making data available even in an emergency.
