Majority of IT Decision-Makers Opt for Service Provider Support in Cloud Migrations

By Greg Tavarez

The integration of cloud computing is pivotal in driving business success – we already know this. While the cloud offers a multitude of benefits that range from enhanced scalability to cost-efficiency, achieving these advantages necessitates a well-thought-out strategic plan, such as collaborating with an experienced service provider.

These providers bring a wealth of expertise and industry knowledge, guiding businesses through the intricate process of aligning cloud solutions with organizational goals. Their experience allows for the identification of optimal cloud architectures, deployment models, and security measures, ensuring that businesses harness the full potential of cloud technology while mitigating potential risks.

So, it should be no surprise that 90% of IT leaders say they rely on service provider assistance for successful cloud migrations, according to a recent RapidScale study. There are many reasons why IT leaders should lean on service provider assistance during cloud migrations – especially when 90% of them underestimate the complexity of cloud migration.

Firstly, the intricacies of migrating to the cloud demand a nuanced understanding of diverse technologies, security protocols and compliance requirements. Service providers can navigate these complexities with finesse. With a service provider at the helm, IT leaders can tap into a reservoir of skills that encompass everything from infrastructure optimization to data migration, mitigating the risk of common pitfalls and technical challenges.

Service providers also offer a valuable external perspective that can enhance decision-making processes. By leveraging their experience with various clients across different industries, service providers can offer insights into best practices and emerging trends. This external viewpoint is particularly crucial in anticipating potential roadblocks and optimizing the cloud environment for maximum efficiency.

The collaboration with a seasoned service provider is a proactive investment that not only streamlines the adoption of cloud solutions but also positions businesses for sustained growth and agility in an increasingly competitive environment.

“Organizations that leverage expertise and resources offered by proficient partners like RapidScale can mitigate risks and capitalize on the potential that the cloud can deliver,” said Duane Barnes, Vice President, General Manager of RapidScale. “RapidScale plays a pivotal role in providing expertise across a spectrum of services, from application modernization to cloud infrastructure design, simplifying IT and unleashing innovation for businesses.”
