When determining the ROI of cloud computing to an in-house data center, there’s more than just security, scalability, and capabilities. There are also benefits to be seen in the total cost of ownership (TCO) versus the net benefits you reap.
For example, what kind of data center do you need to build that could house your Oracle EBS platform versus leasing space on an AWS-like platform? What could you do with an EDI platform housed on a remote server that not only protects your data but gives remote access to employees and partners around the world?
To understand those benefits, you need to answer questions like, what are the risks of keeping your system in-house versus on AWS platform? How would you complete the migration in the most effective, least painful way possible? How would you measure the ROI and TCO for this type of operation, and where could you find some hidden savings?
Ultimately, switching to a cloud computing platform can not only reduce your TCO on your data center, it can help you modernize your different applications, data collection, and reporting. But there is understandably some hesitance by executives on making this switch.
“There’s a lot of FUD out there that that movement won’t reduce costs,” Sandy Carter, vice president of EC2 Windows and enterprise workloads at AWS, told CIO.com.
Carter is very familiar with this feeling in her work as CIOs often ask her about how they can handle their own cloud migration and modernization.
“Most CIOs are trying to get out of spending time and money on maintaining systems,” Carter said. “Moving up to serverless enables them to focus on what matters to their business.”
We see this too at Value Global — companies want to migrate from IBM, Microsoft, SAP, Oracle, and other enterprise-level on-premise systems to a cloud-based platform because they realize their in-house data center has become a money pit that sees them dumping good money after bad.
We’ve got the tools and experience to help you evaluate your TCO and ROI of cloud computing for helping you decide whether to migrate to the cloud, and more tools to help you actually make the transfer to a new XaaS platform.
We’ve been spending a lot of time helping the oil and gas industry as well as other supply chain-intensive industries, like retail supply chain, healthcare, automotive, government, and general manufacturing. Companies that need to collaborate and share information across the organization’s departments or even to third-party vendor partners.
We focus a lot on the integration of systems because our customers often need us to provide integration between different cloud SaaS providers. For example, our product,CollaBridge, is a SaaS application that allows customers to connect their EBS platform to Box, which is a SaaS document storage provider. We created CollaBridge to help companies more easily manage their transition to a hybrid enterprise.
It’s tools like this that help executives see a higher ROI and lower TCO on their cloud platforms. It reduces the staggering costs of in-house data centers, along with their energy costs, hardware costs, staffing costs, and even cybersecurity costs.
