CCaaS: Cloud Consulting as a Service
If your business had infinite money and no desire to turn that money into more money, you would not need consultants of any kind. New technologies like cloud computing services would be impulse purchases along with jets and freshly printed currency for money fights in the boardroom.
You could just read cloud providers’ websites and base your technological decisions on what they say about themselves, or listen to a consultant whose background is in sales and marketing instead of IT. But for the majority of CIOs, CFOs, and other C-levels, investing in even familiar business technology is a research-driven, budget-conscious process.
Investing in still-developing technologies calls for even more research. But where can you go for unabridged, comprehensible, objective information on cloud computing? You need facts, not talking points or sales pitches.
This is why Its-Your-Internet added cloud consulting to our business technology services. We do not provide software as a service (Saas), infrastructure as a service (IaaS), or platforms as a service (PaaS). We offer researched, approachable suggestions for your company’s ideal cloud computing solutions.
Cloud-based computing: not just a lot of hot air
Remember when “green” and “eco” first became ubiquitous prefixes in all kinds of advertising, whether or not they really applied? “Cloud” faces the same problem of losing its meaning, because cloud service providers (and tangentially-related service providers) know that “cloud” is hot and have already begun expanding the definition past its applications.
This breeds confusion about what it is you are buying and what you should expect. The benefits of cloud computing are too important to ignore, but you should not have to wade through misinformation, advertising language and providers who seem to fall under the categories of a few reliable Goliaths or one in a growing crowd of Davids. The truth is much more complicated, interesting, and easily available.
A cloud consultant finds and provides the information that is relevant to your industry and the business goals you have communicated, and lays it out so that the benefits of each service and provider are clear. Contact us to start your clear-eyed entry into the cloud.
