Cloud Services are quickly becoming the new “norm” for businesses to evaluate and invest in to operate their businesses. So what exactly are Cloud Services? Cloud Services are a single service or group of services provided over the internet for users to have access to and use on demand through a browser. This contrasts with on premise services which derive from in house servers or servers in a data center that are managed for you with your applications running on them.
Cloud Services for businesses cover a wide spectrum including the following areas:
With Microsoft we are a Tier One Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) which means we can transact directly with our customers to manage their licensing, deploy and manage their solutions along with providing direct support. It is a strong benefit for customers to work with a Tier One solution provider, versus a Tier Two, because they can eliminate the “middle man”; a distributor of the licensing. For Microsoft, solutions we provide include Azure, Dynamics 365 Business Central, Dynamics 365 for Sales, Office 365 and Power BI.
For NetSuite we are a Solution Provider Partner for their one unified business management solution which is the #1 Cloud Based ERP system in the world. It covers CRM, ERP, Service, Projects, eCommerce, warehousing, and the list of functionality goes on and on.

By now you have educated yourself on what types of cloud services are available and how to evaluate and plan for a move to the cloud.
Moving to the cloud can be done in “baby steps” or with one big leap forward. The “baby steps” approach is a good option if you are looking to gain some of the benefits the cloud has to offer but not quite ready for a full application platform change for your business. You can simply take your on-premise application and install it in the Microsoft Azure Cloud all while maintaining your existing licensing, software assurance and user interface. You are just eliminating the on-premise hardware and other resources needed to keep the system up and running.
The one big leap forward involves moving from your existing on premise-based application to a new true cloud-based platform, such as Microsoft Dynamics 365 or NetSuite. This is a transformational process for your business and is the implementation of a new ERP or CRM business management system. This is the opportunity to transform your business by leveraging new processes, new features, analytics and business intelligence. You never again have to invest in software assurance, perform upgrades, manage servers or backups; all these things are included in your software subscriptions.
