Two Heads May Be Better than One, but One Service Provider Beats Two

Utilizing a single provider for network and cloud services means better service and faster support

One of the main reasons for moving to the cloud is to free IT staff from labor-intensive, daily management of computing services, and instead make them available for more strategic activities such as planning and oversight. Simplifying network management by using one vendor for both networking and cloud services is one more way to free resources for those profit-enhancing initiatives. Setting up services becomes simpler when the vendor recommending your network configuration knows what cloud services you’ll be using. Compatibility issues are eliminated before they occur. And IT staff doesn’t have to play middleman and be responsible for conveying information between cloud and network vendors.

One of the biggest differences among cloud service providers is whether the provider offers their own network access to their cloud services...

It’s where you go to participate in multiplayer games, to update social media and to access services like Dropbox or Salesforce. In fact, if your link to the cloud went down, you’d likely be limited to what’s on your desktop, laptop or tablet, and maybe what’s on the servers down the hall. You’d have to do a whole lot more phoning, snail mailing and walking to your colleague’s desk, and you’d be functioning more or less the way primitives did back in the 1980s. In other words, you already rely heavily on the cloud. We all do.

“Unfogging” the Cloud

Moving to the cloud is a big decision. It will change the way you operate, but because IT is changing—technology is becoming more user-driven—that may happen anyway. The good news is that the cloud lets IT outsource some of the least strategic aspects of their operations and focus on those that are most unique to the company, making IT (and IT staff) more valuable corporate resources.
