Organizations across Canada are faced with a variety of challenges when it comes to IT. Over the past few years, I have identified four key questions that customers are turning to MOBIA to help with.
- The business is demanding that IT move faster and is circumventing us by using SaaS and public cloud IaaS services without involvement from IT. How do I manage this?
- The capital expenditure (CAPEX) requirements for my infrastructure renewal project are hard to predict and always result in over-provisioning and long lead times. How can I deliver more timely and cost-effective IT?
- I’m concerned about the security of my data, especially as increasingly more of it is stored outside of our data center, in public clouds and by SaaS providers. How do I ensure the security of my data?
- Now that data is being stored and accessed outside of the traditional corporate network, how can I create a consistent user experience for my internal customers?
If you’re reading this, I bet at least one of them has been on your mind in the last 6 months. And I can imagine that pondering the answers have kept you up late at night, more than once! What if I told you there was a solution that can:
- Simplify Internal IT operations and increase the speed of delivering projects to internal team
- Remove large capital expenses, while reducing overprovisioning and shifting to a “Pay what you consume” model
- Allow you to retain control of your data within the walls of your data center
- Create consistent and user friendly experiences for your internal customers
Sounds great, right? I bet you thought I was going to suggest you move to the public cloud, until you read the part about retaining control of your data.
