Maximising the Investment in Software
As organisations look to reduce cost and increase business agility, the concept of ‘cloud computing’ offers an interesting service delivery option to achieve those goals. Whether it be an Internet-based cloud, or a private cloud within the data centre, a range of services, from collaboration and messaging to infrastructure management, can be delivered through a cloud-approach.
Cloud computing - sometimes also referred to as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) - offers a number of benefits, including:
• Well-defined services that are activated as required, or on a subscription-basis;
• Services that may be scaled up and down as required;
• Ability to deliver services in a manner that takes advantage of automation and scale.
Cloud computing is an evolving area of IT and the potential benefits may be matched by new challenges. Dimension Data’s range of service offerings enable businesses to better understand the benefits and risks of cloud computing for different types of organisations and computing workloads. We provide a range of consulting services to assess cloud-based services and define a roadmap to adoption - either directly to Internet-based services or on-premise private cloud data centres.
Our broad infrastructure skills enable us to ensure that any organisation has the right network and data centre prerequisites to properly support cloud computing, and our migration and management services remove risk and complexity.
