The Cloud, Cutting Costs

The Cloud, Cutting Costs

Reduce complexity and reduce costs with intelligent cloud solutions

With financial pressures looking likely to continue, businesses will increasingly be asked to justify IT budgets, and in many cases, support increased demand for IT services. Businesses need to identify new opportunities to reduce costs and maximise efficiencies, and taking a short term view is no longer considered acceptable.

With the vast array of IT innovations driving down costs and complexity, now is the time to consider intelligent solutions that represent sustained savings over the long term.

Cost optimisation is the key

So how do you do that? IT cost optimisation isn't just about cutting costs - it's about spending more on items that maximise the value IT delivers to your business - and conversely, less on things that don't.

IT systems are inherently complex, but a lack of standard platforms, disparate systems, ageing infrastructure and inconsistent business processes, are all likely to drive up costs. Research indicates that complexity imposes additional unnecessary cost, which Gartner1 estimates can be as high as 25% on a unit cost basis.

70% of businesses are re-focussing IT spend

Further, Gartner estimates that throughout 2015 at least 70% of enterprises will have the potential to reduce I&O (infrastructure & operations) costs by 25% or more. The 70% are re-focussing their IT spend to reduce complexity, increase flexibility, and at the same time, reduce costs - and they're doing it via an intelligent aggregation of cloud solutions.

Cloud benefits extend well beyond the $

There are significant opportunities to drive savings through the various cloud solutions on offer, whether via cloud infrastructure (IaaS) or 'pay per use' products (SaaS) like Office 365.

If implemented and managed properly (this is key!), the value is likely to extend well beyond the balance sheet, with enhanced business continuity, scalability and lower support costs adding to the strong justification. It's not too late to join the 70%, but the stampede of businesses moving into the cloud is gathering momentum, and with good reason.
