Move to the Cloud

The no-compromise value of cloud office automation

In the past decade, the hype around cloud technology has been exhausting. Appropriately, many organizations and their IT departments approached with caution.

But today, the value of cloud is overwhelmingly clear. Scale, power and mobility once available to only the Global 1000 are within reach to any organization, and high-value solutions like office automation and document management can be acquired with surprising ease.

For every organization, cloud is part of the future. For many, it is the only future.

Cloud in a nutshell

Up until the last decade, enterprise technology ran exclusively on racks of servers inside corporate datacenters. New applications came with hefty implementation, integration, storage and security overhead. Appropriately, IT departments had big budgets and wide control.

The cloud shifts the layers of an IT stack – applications, storage, middleware, networking, security, computation horsepower – into a massive, redundant, globally distributed network of datacenters. Now the only requirement for access is an internet connection.

Critically, this accessibility of cloud applications puts the business owner at the heart of technology decisions. This provides:

Financial flexibility

Applications like cloud document management and cloud automation are bought by the sip rather than by the gallon. Services can be acquired via operational expense versus capital expense.

Obvious path to value

Cloud workflow and document management services follow a path of try first ⇒ buy small ⇒ scale up. This is 180-degree flip from tradition, which was buy big ⇒ implement ⇒ hope it sticks.

Administrative simplicity

The burden of security, redundancy and scalability are shifted to the cloud services provider. Business owners focus on process optimization and worker productivity.
