Our team of experts will help you identify the important applications you should migrate first, in order not to disrupt your business operation.
Models of Cloud Services
Software as a Service (SaaS)
Basically, the application and basic structure for the system is owned and provided by the cloud service provider. As a customer, you have the privilege of utilizing the system remotely. There are many services like this and they include Evernote, Salesforce applications, and applications for managing customer relationship.
Platform as a Service (PaaS)
Here, the cloud service provider is required to provide the basic structure and also the operating system for the application. The application, however, belongs to you, the client. Most times, this system of operation is adopted for cloud software development. A test environment is provided for the application without incurring the cost of computer hardware or software license.
Infrastructure as a Service
In this arrangement, only the infrastructure belongs to the cloud service provider. The operating system and application are owned by the client and the Cloud Integrator (it’s us). E-commerce platforms often adopt Public Cloud as a very cost effective solution.
Factors to Consider before Adopting Architectural Cloud Enablement
Are you already considering adopting a cloud strategy? That’s definitely a step in the right direction! However, there are certain considerations which should not be overlooked. A competent cloud consulting organization will give these factors emphasis when it comes to enabling cloud services.
As we all know, this is an important aspect in any cloud migration strategy. With services like data transfer, software interfaces, storing data, access control, and separation of data. It is, therefore, important that we deal holistically across the cloud architecture.
