Myth-Busting Monday: Cloud Means Less Control
Cloud adoption continues to grow. Many business and IT leaders still have the misconception that moving data into the cloud means giving up control of your data or your technology.
In fact, when you move into Office 365 and other cloud services, you still have control over your IT environment. You have the admin tools to control the who, what, where, when, and how of your information and systems.
The role of your IS team shifts from technical issues to business issues.
When you move to the cloud, you give up most of the time spent maintaining hardware and upgrading software. You no longer need to focus on maintenance, repairs, daily admin tasks, and upgrades. You free up the time you need to focus on improving business operations, developing new analytics and insights, and launching new and agile initiatives.
When you move to the cloud, you stop spending ever-increasing capital dollars on servers and storage while trying to match capacity with need. Cloud solutions let you focus your IT spend on specific capabilities for specific roles and needs within your organization.
Moving to the cloud lets you think strategically and select solutions that support and respond to the needs of your managers and staff.
