Working in the cloud is more complicated than many people think. And it’s a GOOD complication—in fact, moving to the cloud can accelerate your business exponentially.
When your infrastructure is on prem, you can innovate “x” amount for your business each year. You’re limited by your available technology, skillsets, and budget. You can advance the company through innovation, but it is typically contingent on resources. On the other hand, when your infrastructure is in the cloud, you can solve business problems so quickly and easily that you can innovate “x” times ten. At least.
But rapid innovation isn’t the problem. The trouble is that with this extraordinary additional value comes the need for additional management. Your once “x” value to the company explodes in its potential to “10x”—a sense of rapid innovation that’s inherently the reason for moving to the cloud in the first place.
To harness this accelerated innovation and compete in today’s business environment, you have three choices:
1) Retrain your staff
2) Add skilled headcount for each new service you deploy
3) Use a managed service provider (MSP) with a breadth of cloud expertise
There are reasons for each of these, but only one allows you to drive the multiples of potential innovation in the cloud.
Learn more about how each of these three choices can impact your business in our latest eBook, Thriving in the Cloud: Optimize Your Human Capital. Then start innovating 10x!
