Cloud Migration is still early - Excellence in Cloud Management is essential to scale

Migrating to the public or private cloud is only the beginning of the journey of building infrastructure required to transform data, applications and business processes. For a considerable period of time, we will see an overlap of traditional infrastructure management and cloud-based infrastructure services. Overlay the COVID pandemic and a highly resource-constrained environment, and you have the ultimate infrastructure management and scaling challenge.

“I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure.
It is: Try to please everybody.”
– Herbert Bayard Swope

Process & Results

Why Cloud Managed Services?

Effective management continues to be the key priority for most organizations, as cloud adoption continues to rise in the US. To address this challenge, the American-based organizations choose different ways to manage their cloud infrastructure. Some manage it themselves, and some bring in a Cloud MSP to ease their immediate complexities, while some choose to have a managed cloud service provider who can handle broader mission with a clear vision on managing hybrid environments and resources.

Whatever the case, the aim is to find the right fit for effective cloud management! A bad strategy can lead to:

  • Rise of operational risks

    Finding the right fit while choosing a Cloud MSP is important – Any failure in this aspect can cause serious operational risks in your processes working on cloud infrastructure and halt the functioning of revenue-generating models such as sales and supply chains.

  • Rise of security risks

    Applications running on public cloud pose more vulnerability to cloud-security risks. Considering this fact, it is essential to have the right security strategy in place to avoid such risks.

  • Less Value
