Next-Generation Cloud Services Increase Performance and Reduce Costs

Cloud services have exploded on the technology scene.  Cloud application technology continues to climb in usability as it redefines how applications work on network infrastructures.  It also greatly exposes the limitations of current, typical networks, particularly regarding efficiency, control, scalability, storage, and security.

Next- generation cloud infrastructure platforms have the ever-present challenge of meeting massive capacity and scalability, while staying tightly secured.  Service providers seek to provide converged solutions that encompass much functionality while meeting an ever-increasing demand for network-centric services to help support today’s businesses.

Businesses Turn to Cloud Services for Better Customer Offerings, Streamlined Proficiency and Tightened Data Security

For example, The Economist recently reported that banks of all sizes are beginning to embark upon cloud technologies to provide better customer service offerings.  This is a huge trend that will most likely turn into the norm as the cost benefits, efficiency, and scalability are all positives for a great return on investment (ROI).  Risks that have been a concern, such as data protection and overall information security, are no longer a major consideration.

With the launch of the first Apple smartphone, mobile app usage skyrocketed.  It has only continued to grow.  It’s never been more urgent for today’s businesses to jump on board and select the right mobile application development platform (MADP) .  A consideration is not only the ability to scale, but also how quickly the needs can be scaled, or changed completely, especially as business needs and offerings change.

Top Considerations for Selecting a Cloud Provider

Businesses should invest some time into sufficiently researching the many providers out there, such as Next-Generation Cloud Technologies from Kony.  When selecting a cloud service provider, it’s important to consider these traits:

  • Which cloud services are available?
  • What is the pricing structure?
  • How tight is the cloud security?
  • What is the location of the data center, and how tight is the security of that center?
  • How scalable is the cloud to future needs?
  • How will the cloud be accessed?
  • What customer support is available?
  • What type of backup is available to prevent data loss?
  • What happens during downtime, should it occur?
Today’s businesses need to be able to trust their cloud service provider to handle the IT, maintenance, and support issues while the business owners and employees concentrate on the business at hand.  Keep in mind, however, that network-centric cloud technologies create a platform allowing employees to access and work remotely.  The advantages of cloud technologies for today’s businesses are endless.
