To go to the cloud, stay on the ground, or something in-between?
These days, a lot of businesses are starting to talk about taking their SharePoint environment to the cloud. However, it may not be the right solution for every organization.
The public cloud that works for one business may need to be a private, dedicated environment for another. And some businesses have the resources to keep their infrastructure on-premises indefinitely. Depending on your industry, your IT staff and your budget, your organization has many variables to consider when contemplating making a move towards managed services or hosting in their data in the cloud.
In fact, there are many questions that need to be answered in order to make a decision that’s best for your organization. If your business is starting to have the cloud conversation, make sure these questions are given careful thought:
Questions for the Cloud Conversation
- How much work is it to migrate from on-premises to the cloud?
- Are there any capabilities lost from this transition?
- How secure is the cloud?
- Do we risk falling behind if we choose to stay on-premises?
- The cloud is more affordable, but are the cost-savings worth the switch?
- What about Hybrid? Is it possible to blend an online and on-premises solution?
- What are the best practices and important considerations for implementing hybrid?
