Gone are the days when all I.T. was dealt with in-house. The reality is that cloud technology is more cost-effective and easier to manage for the in-house I.T. professionals.
Having said that it remains an important part of the job description to chose wisely when it comes to deciding on the cloud-computing partner for your organisations future.
The first challenge is to develop a coherent I.T. strategy based on cloud technology, which combines all back-office, online and possible BPO functions. Integrating all these functions in a cloud based infrastructure is essential to gain the competitive advantage for the target organisation.
Not to mention the data fragmentation issue, which can all but paralyse any business.
Continuous training is required to maintain up-to-date and efficient technology use and provide up-to-date user support and setup within the organisation.
Many new segments of the business process are touched by an integrated I.T. plan and result in big savings in terms of cost and continued overheads.
Today’s I.T. professional is more and more involved in strategic overall business planning and tasked with delivering an integrated I.T. solution to streamline work-flow on all levels within the organisation.
There are not many really integrated cloud computing providers as most vendors are more or less one trick ponies as in the past. APIs are just red herrings to fool you into believing they represent real integration, which they do not.
I.T. professionals are looking at a more and more complex future with increased demand for their skill-set.
We here at WinWeb would be happy to show you how we can be a good partner for your goal to deliver integrated and cost-effective I.T. to your organisation.
