So often the advantages of cloud computing overshadow the fact that a proper implementation is still critical for success, as with any other traditional IT applications.
It is true that getting into the Cloud can be as easy as signing up to a ‘software as a service’ (SaaS) contract, but the reality is far wider than that:
- Do you have buy in from the business?
Is the cloud solution pushed into the organisations or being pulled by it?
- Is there a proper exit strategy?
It may look like an overkill to investigate an exit strategy when starting with a contract on a new technology, but if this is not correctly assessed, then you won’t have a negotiation position for future renewal.
- What is the cloud for?
Is this brought in to develop a business application? Or is it an off the shelf software product?
If you have concerns about these questions, especially if you have never thought about any of them, we have the expertise to answer them and guide you in your journey to the cloud. We don’t just develop models on the cloud once your account is setup, we can guide you through the whole process from RFP to renegotiation and manage all the hurdles along the way.
