5 Hidden Stumbling Blocks Impacting Your Cloud Deployment
Whether it’s a move to Cloud Telephony, a Cloud Contact Center or a complete move of office applications, most organizations have begun to move some of their services to the cloud. Whilst this might seem like the best option, many are quickly finding that it may not be so simple.
Too often, businesses contact us looking for help after their cloud deployments have been delayed, shelved or sometimes entirely cancelled due to deployment issues such as:
Network Performance – Issues with the network can have a high impact on service performance such as with voice, video or load times.
Security – Cloud applications create very new demands for a traditional security environment. Teams are often ill equipped to deal with requirements of cloud applications.
Shared Services – Often an application or service may have been bundled together on a single on-premise solution but now needs to be unbundled to move to the cloud e.g. a single PBX hosting voice, fax and contact center. This is frequently not considered and may have consequences for the business case and deployment logistics.
Change Management – Cloud technology often provides a new way of working. Without effective communication and training, pushback from stakeholders and end-users is likely.
Vendor Management – While many vendors will do a reasonable job of managing the deployment, this cannot be said in all cases. Poor professional services will quickly lead to deployment issues.
In almost all cases, the strategy was right but the deployment methodology was unable to deliver that strategy and cater for the change required.
