The majority of businesses today realize how important IT is to their operations. Technology, such as remote access, Internet, email, office productivity applications, smartphone integration technology, and Customer Relationship Management systems, to name a few, are critical to the day-to-day operation and success of most businesses. While this importance is understood and appreciated, the overall cost to acquire and keep up with new technologies is a growing challenge for businesses of all sizes.
For most businesses, IT management is based on a very traditional process. This often involves buying technology equipment, acquiring consulting services, paying for installation, and signing up to a multi-year service maintenance contract. This technology acquisition model often means large upfront capital cost with expensive and unpredictable on-going IT maintenance costs.
However, over the last several years, combination of technology and market demand have given rise to such concepts as Utility Computing, On-Demand Computing, Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and Platform as a Service (PaaS). These concepts have merged to become a larger concept now commonly known as “Cloud Computing”. Cloud Computing aims for IT cost reduction. At the very essence, Cloud Computing entails delivering a specific, standardized set of ready-to-use technology services over a high-speed broadband network, particularly the Internet, with the ability to increase or decrease capacity and utilization on demand, in a metered fashion. Better effective use of technology leads to cost savings and productivity gains. Reduce IT costs with Cloud Computing!
Adoption of business-class Cloud Computing services delivers immediate cost savings, without sacrificing the quality and sophistication level of the technology deployed. It is not uncommon for businesses to see a reduction in the total cost of ownership by 50% or more, and rapidly increase the return on investment, when comparing Cloud-based solutions to traditional IT solutions.
Lower Cost of Entry. Stop buying technology and sign up for ready-to-use IT Cloud services. Traditional IT is expensive to acquire, complicated to setup, and often ineffective and under-utilized. Cloud services require little or no entry cost making access and use of advanced technology extremely affordable, easy, and headache-free. For example, see how you can give your business a technology boost and move up to NIRIX oneExchange service, advanced hosted Microsoft Exchange email service, for a fraction of the cost of deploying traditional in-house Microsoft Exchange solution.
Eliminate Complicated and Confusing Software Licensing Costs. Stop buying software and reduce the complexity of licensing and annual renewals. Ready-to-use Cloud services have no software licensing to purchase and no annual licenses to renew.
Eliminate Expensive IT Professionals, Installation, and Consulting Fees. Stop paying expensive hourly rates for consulting and installation services common with traditional IT solutions. With Cloud services, there are no expensive upfront consulting fees, and services are activated and ready-to-use within hours and days instead of months and years.
Eliminate Costly Support and IT Maintenance Costs. Stop signing on to costly support and maintenance contracts. Traditional IT involves having to keep up to technology that changes every 3-6 months. With Cloud services, the Cloud Service Provider (CSP) supports and maintains the core technology and infrastructure, ensuring you around-the-clock accessibility to the most up-to-date Cloud services.
