Not sure whether to move your business to the cloud? RU Online can help guide you through the process.

Moving to the cloud can protect your business data & systems from natural disasters, cyber attacks, human error, and hardware failure.

Cloud computing offers some distinct advantages over traditional onsite IT infrastructure, both in terms of performance and accessibility. There are pitfalls however, and you’ll need to weigh up the pros and cons as they apply to your particular situation to make an informed decision on what, if any, services you should migrate to the cloud.

In a traditional onsite IT system, you’ll have full control over all aspects of both hardware and software, and will be responsible not only for hardware and firmware maintenance, but also for software updates, integration and security. This can be expensive to set up, as compared to the ongoing SaaS (Software as a Service) approach of cloud computing.

Cloud solutions require a reliable, high speed internet connection (ideally fibre-based), and a less than ideal internet connection can make critical services unsuitable for the cloud. Also, depending on your business needs, there are a bewilderingly large number of cloud apps available, some of which are better able to integrate with others.

We can help you assess your business needs and goals in the context of migrating to the cloud, advise which cloud solutions are best suited to your particular situation, and help integrate and deploy an effective, robust cloud solution that fits with your business strategy and requirements.

Our cloud migration process

  1. Review your business strategy, to understand which direction you want to go in the move to the cloud
  2. Assess your specific objectives & requirements, including target budget, to understand what’s important to you
  3. Business-wide analysis of your IT systems, to determine which functions we should move to the cloud, and which we should keep onsite?
  4. Investigate and advise which cloud apps are best suited for your business, to be sure your cloud solution will meet your requirements, and integrate with new and existing systems.
  5. Migration & deployment of your new cloud solution, including testing and staff training to avoid teething issues
