As a business grows and develops, so too will its IT infrastructure needs. To keep up with the increasing demand, businesses are searching for effective ways to scale their infrastructure at the same time expand its accessibility. One of the most effective solutions for this is cloud infrastructure migration.
Cloud migration refers to deploying your data, applications, and other vital infrastructure elements into the cloud, which is then managed by a cloud service provider. According to the International Data Corporation, global spending on public cloud computing is expected to reach $162 billion in 2020. With so many businesses incorporating cloud infra services into their IT deployments, it is clear that it is becoming an indispensable aspect of corporate IT strategy.
Cloud migration solutions offer many advantages for any business looking to easily streamline their operations:
As your operations grow, the demands on your resources will increase, and you will need to expand your infrastructure. With physical, on-premise hardware, your ability to do so is limited by the financial and human resource cost of installing and maintaining new hardware, ensuring the reliability of the new systems. Expanding IT infrastructure can also lead to costly and inconvenient downtime. Infrastructure migration services can completely remove these physical constraints, leaving you able to scale your infrastructure both vertically and horizontally at a moment’s notice to keep up with your expanding market.
Traditional, on-premise hardware requires a significant financial investment. Employees must be hired or trained to install new hardware and maintain existing infrastructure. In the worst cases, additional space is required to make room for expanding operations. With cloud infrastructure services, you are freed of the burden of many of these costs and can therefore focus more on the suitability of potential resources rather than their cost.
IT infrastructure is vulnerable to multifarious security issues, ranging from physical attacks and power outages to software vulnerabilities and viruses. Implementing a robust security strategy to safeguard your investment is complicated and costly. Physical hardware security requires specially trained staff, well-maintained backup systems, and up-to-date hardware. Software security, meanwhile, requires one to stay up to date with all the latest software updates and newest systems. Cloud computing lets you entrust these concerns to experts and leaves you free to focus on expanding your operations.
Due to the booming demand for cloud infrastructure solutions, there is a seemingly infinite array of solutions to choose from. No matter your needs, there exists a solution that is perfectly tailored to your business. However, managing a successful cloud infrastructure migration is not an easy task. You will need to choose a service provider and decide which deployment model is most suited to your needs. You will need to make sure that the solution you have chosen can meet your business’s current and future needs in terms of accessibility, scalability, security, etc. You also don’t want to pay for more than what your business actually needs and can effectively use.

Business intelligence (BI) is one of the most valuable assets of a modern company. At the heart of the process is the collection, analysis, storage, and retrieval of vast amounts of data relevant to your organization. Handled poorly, this data can be more detrimental than helpful. A data warehouse prevents this by collecting, curating, and managing data from various diverse sources in a single central location.Explore
Change is one of the few constants in modern business. Technologies, regulations, products, and attitudes are forever shifting over time—it’s up to successful enterprises to shift with them or face getting left behind. Not long ago, data reporting was expensive, time-consuming, difficult, and sometimes impossible. Today, our data tools and solutions come with little costs and lots of insights. Data warehousing is the solution we didn’t know we needed.Explore
Business intelligence and data analytics are similar at first glance but have two starkly different purposes in the enterprise. BI refers to systems and tools that analyze corporate data for decision-making, while data analytics refers to the processing of raw data into a digestible format. Despite these differences, both can work together to fuel business growth and increase data value.Explore
A proper data governance strategy has become more vital than ever, thanks to the ratification of data protection regulations like the GDPR and CCPA. Despite this consensus, the CIO WaterCooler Data Governance Survey revealed that 53% of companies had only just started working on their enterprise data governance strategy in 2017.Explore
The idea of data warehousing was first explored in detail back in 1988 by a team of researchers at IBM. In their whitepaper, Barry Devlin and Paul Murphy went into detail about the environments in which companies were maintaining their database instances. They highlighted the growing need at IBM for further integration to simplify access and improve data consistency for end-users. This was during a time where “big data” was unheard of, with businesses managing much smaller datasets.Explore
With the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA) and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) now in full swing, the regulatory landscape for businesses has never been more complicated. Consumers are increasingly aware of cybersecurity in their daily lives, and they are demanding better protection against these threats when using online services.Explore
