Is De-Clouding Right for You?
De-clouding (also known as ‘un-clouding’) may be a more cost effective option if, for example, you can be confident that your workload and the size of your organisation will remain relatively unchanged. If you don’t need the flexibility and the scalability that the cloud offers, and if you don’t often need remote access to your software and files, then the cloud might not always offer you the best value for money. A co-located or ‘on-premises’ solution might sometimes be a cheaper option.
Fundamentally, we want to make sure that you choose the right systems for the right reasons. For example, some clients consider de-clouding because they associate it with slow connections and delays during periods of heavy use. In all likelihood, that’s not a problem with the cloud; it’s probably more about connectivity – which might well be an easier and cheaper problem to fix.
