8 business drivers that motivate cloud migrations 1. Agility and staff productivity
The automation that cloud offers allows yout people to dedicate more time to important business tasks, while also increasing the pace of innovation. Cut IT infrastructure procurement cycles from months to hours.
2. Improved security and operational resilience
Migrating with AWS and STC helps to harden security and protect your business against cyber attacks. Manage your security with policy blueprints that apply to your entire cloud, or better yet, opt for a managed cloud experience with STC.
On average, AWS states businesses experience more than 40% fewer security incidents and 7x less downtime.
3. Cost reduction
At STC, we can guarantee savings of no less than 20% over a three year period on your infrastructure. In some instances, those savings can be up to 51% over a 5 year period
4. Hardware/Software end of life
As you can run AWS workloads in a pay as you go fashion with licensing attached, it means you do not need to worry about complex licensing. As for your hardware, when it is no longer suitable, simply upgrade in the cloud instantly with minimal downtime.
5. Data Centre consolidation
Spend more time focusing on running your business, and let STC and AWS worry about the Data Centre. No more fire suppression systems, security guards, raised floors. All of that is included in the cost of your AWS workloads.
6. Digital transformation
Cloud inherently offers the agility, advanced technology and flexibility that allows businesses to enter their modernisation phase.
7. Expansion, mergers and acquisitions
Choosing a cloud provider like AWS gives businesses access to a global network of data centres, allowing you to scale in any region. If you decide to operate in more than one region, simply spin up more resources in that region with a few clicks.
8. New technologies
From Machine Learning, to Internet of Things, the only thing that should limit your business is your chosen pace of growth. There are numerous tools and services readily available as managed services for your business to explore to support its growth strategy.
