Choosing the best cloud software for your business
Moving your computing systems to the cloud can save you time and money, while opening up tremendous performance capabilities. Before doing so, it’s important to make sure that the vendor you are considering meets minimum security, performance, and service standards. By asking the right questions before committing, you’ll make a smart decision that will dramatically increase your IT productivity.
We can help you move your business to the cloud by undertaking a Cloud Readiness Assessment for your business.
Working with a cloud computing vendor has numerous benefits. From a cost perspective, it decreases both the server space and the technical support needed to run and manage complex programs. Cloud applications also allow your team to be mobile and work from different devices. It’s essential to find the right cloud service provider that meets all your needs. Here are the elements you need to consider when selecting one for your business.
One the most important steps is to ensure ongoing quality support. Look at what support offerings each cloud computing vendor has and the different ways to contact them (email, phone, online chat, etc). Verify that support hours sync up with your company’s main operating hours and make sure that there is support available for after-hours, weekends, and holidays in case of emergencies.
It’s important to ensure that any cloud vendor you consider using a standardised API or application programming interface. This mechanism handles the data transformations that plug specific software programs into the cloud. Standardized APIs mean the servers will be compatible with all your applications and you’ll be much less likely to experience user issues along the way.
It is important to find out how a cloud vendor stores and protects your data. In addition to an overall security plan, it’s helpful to understand the answers to specific questions. How are levels of access granted and controlled? Does the provider use multiple steps to confirm the identity of someone logging into your account? What forms of authentication is the vendor using? Get as much information as possible on the steps providers take to make sure your data remains safe.
Does your business handle sensitive information, such as financial or health data? If so, your business may be subject to specific government or industry regulations on data storage and handling protocols. It’s important to ensure that a cloud provider understands and addresses those concerns. The penalties for mishandling sensitive information, both financial and criminal, can be significant.
