3 Considerations to Make When Moving to the Cloud

Important considerations before moving to the cloud | Founders Technology  Group, LLC

Is your company on the cloud? If not, you may be stalling behind your competition.

According to the Flexera 2020 State of the Cloud Report,94% of businesses are already using the technology. If your organization needs to play catch and make the switch, here are three considerations to keep in mind.

1. Evaluate your ability to make the switch to a cloud. If you need help migrating all of your systems and files to the cloud, there are managed IT services companies that can help you with the switch. These companies can take care of the entire process — researching cloud options, prices, and infrastructure. And once you’ve made your choice, they can help work internally and externally to manage the full switch over itself.

2. Make sure you have the right speed. The speed of your connection, the processing speed of the computer, and the local software or operating systems used will affect the performance of your cloud computing service. That means it’s necessary to ensure you are set up correctly and invest in high speed internet service Lehigh Valley-based.

3. Decide on your migration priorities. The good news is that when you make the move to the cloud you don’t need to do it all at once. Instead, you may decide it’s better for your organization to migrate one component or one set of data at a time. Your managed IT services provider will work with you to create this schedule so that it works before your and your entire organization. If you decide on the other hand that a full migration is what is best, the company you work with will be able to manage that process as well without anything falling through the cracks.
