Let’s use the right tools, so you get the most out of the experience.

Quick Definitions

    • Multicloud – Multicloud refers to the use of more than one cloud computing service in a single, diverse, cross-vendor setting. It requires applications to be written specifically for each instruction set, so everything will work at a central point.

       

    • Hybrid Cloud – A hybrid mix of infrastructure and cloud-based services is commonly known as a hybrid cloud solution. It can sometimes be the best option, providing more control, enhancing security, and providing a range of other benefits.

       

    • Cloud – Cloud computing is the basis for all of the above and a single solution that provides you with on-demand computing power. More detail below about what it is, as well as the dos and don’ts.

Each solutions requires expertise to make sure your applications are developed for success.

What Is Cloud Computing?

Cloud computing is the housing of some or all of your infrastructure elsewhere and working with your applications through the internet. Although there are expenses related to this form of computing, your savings are realized in the elimination of onsite equipment, support staff for this equipment, and related costs. However, make sure you are familiar with all aspects of this form of computing before leaping.

Benefits & Drawbacks

One benefit is that you let someone else take care of maintenance and upgrades, not to mention the tool packages that can save time when customizing an application. The downside is that if you select the wrong model and service category (i.e., SaaS), you may lose control of costs and future customizations and, in the end, become homogenized, unable to differentiate yourself from the competition.

Do Your Research

Without doing your due diligence, you can run into issues down the road, long after you have signed the contract and drawn down your internal infrastructure. Even though security is probably at the forefront in your mind when considering if the cloud is right for you, make sure not to forget about the two main reasons you are perhaps weighing the switch to the cloud; efficiency and cost savings. Consider the items below…

Important Items To Understand Before Committing:

There is no doubt that security is probably at the top of your list when considering if the cloud is right for your business. You can assume that protection with a reputable cloud provider is good, if not better than what you may have had in the past. Most cloud providers have full-time staff to monitor and maintain a level of readiness that you probably did not have in the past.

Make sure to consider the following:

    • Ensure It’s A Complete Enterprise Cloud Platform – What good is it if you have to monitor and maintain it? Get your responsibilities and their responsibilities in writing before you move everything and find out you still need a large support staff.
    •  

    • Understand The Fee Structure – Extras are typically not free. Review the service agreement before signing, and understand the costs associated with additional services you may need.
    •  

    • Know Where Your Data Will Be Stored – The cybersecurity of the cloud is probably more secure than your internal setup, but there is more to it. Could they go out of business? What if there is a fire? Look for a reputable company. We can work with any platform provider, but we specialize in Azure and AWS platforms, and their tools sets.

No matter the cloud solution, we understand the tool sets and will integrate your applications.

Every project requires a different toolset. Make sure to work with a company that is familiar with the service provider’s tools and understands how the various libraries, in combination, affect the outcome when combining unique custom applications, hybrid applications, or SaaS and off-the-shelf applications in this new environment.

You Select Your Cloud Service. We'll Take It From There...

Building a custom application is one thing; building it for a specific cloud environment is another. Work with a team that understands the cloud-ready application architecture of the provider you have selected. In this way, you will ensure that your new software will run better, is easier to manage, and is more secure.

Don’t ignore the essential steps:

  1. Utilize Service-Based Architecture
  2. Separate Processing and Data Comp.
  3. Optimize Component Communication
  4. Consider Application Scaling Under Load
  5. Integrate Security Throughout

We Specialize In Recognizable Resources To Consider.

The over-arching benefit of using the cloud is the availability of integration tool libraries that Azure, AWS, IBM, and others offer to make the job that much easier. Listed below is an example of some of the most recognized resources and ones we special working with:

Azure:

  • Logic Apps – Create workflows and command business processes
  • Service Bus – Connect on-premises and cloud-based apps and services
