Why Cloud Computing – An On-Demand Resource for all Your Questions
07-17-2012 / By:
We’ve talked about cloud computing in the past here at the Attivo Blog. At this point, chances are that you understand the basics of cloud computing. And odds are that your e-mail and some of your other day to day computing needs are already utilizing a cloud based solution. But the idea of moving everything offsite either hasn’t crossed your mind or has become the subject of a lot of debate and even more meetings between multiple departments.
We’d like to help you move forward on this issue, even if it is to help you realize that cloud computing isn’t a good fit for you. That’s why we are offering an on-demand webinar that will answer all of the questions that you have most likely been asking your management team. The webinar has been divided into two videos and can be watched at your convenience, shared with your team.
What Is Cloud Computing?
By now you probably have a general idea of what cloud computing is. You probably even have some applications in the cloud, like e-mail. But we want to provide a brief but thorough overview of various cloud hosting options and explain the differences so you can move past that initial hurdle.
What to Expect from a Cloud Hosted ERP or CRM System?
You’ve seen the benefits of a cloud based e-mail solution. You’ve might even have your basic applications like Microsoft Office hosted in the cloud. But the idea of moving the lifeblood of your business into the cloud can be intimidating. We take some time out to provide you with realistic expectations of how your ERP and CRM systems will perform in the cloud.
We’re not all talk either. We will provide a live demo of Macola ERP and CRM systems running in the cloud. Even if you run an ERP or CRM solution from someone other than Exact, this will give you a great understanding of how your current systems will look in the cloud.
Still Not Sold on the Cloud?
At this point, you might be satisfied with the functionality of an ERP or CRM system in the cloud, but you still have questions. How secure is the cloud? Is my data safe? Is it backed up anywhere? What sort of tech support will a get if I move everything offsite?
These questions are important to ask, and they aren’t very difficult to understand if you’re asking the right person. Thankfully for you, we’re the right people to be asking. We’ll cover all of those questions and more.
Brass Tacks: What’s This Going to Cost?
At the end of the day, functionality and security might be secondary concerns to cost. We understand how budgets have tightened in the current economy. While the concept of cloud computing might be nebulous, pricing should never be abstract. We’ll close the webinar with a clear, easy to understand, overview of the Attivo Dedicated Cloud’s pricing structure to help you make a fully informed decision.
While all the pieces of this on-demand webinar may or may not add up for you, we will help you take the discussion of cloud computing out of the conference room and provide a more tangible understanding of the outlay required to transition into a cloud based solution for your business.
