The Journey to Your Cloud
As customers transition to cloud computing, eGroup has identified three distinct, evolutionary steps: starting by achieving higher degrees of IT production and cost savings, followed by increased reliability and quality of service for critical business applications, and eventually moving to an on-demand approach for consumption of IT as more and more automation capabilities are brought online.
While each customer’s path to cloud computing will be unique, understanding this basic framework helps customers, in lock step with eGroup, understand how to plan for this transition.
