Where Business Meets the Cloud

Flexible, cost-effective IT services

Cloud computing is no longer the preserve of larger enterprises. Now small and medium-sized businesses can subscribe to IT services that are hosted by a third party, typically paying a monthly subscription based on the number of PCs that access this software. Services typically include email, customer relationship management systems or web conferencing

Pay for what you want at the right time for you

The benefits are clear. You get to focus on your business rather than the cost and hassle of running IT services on premise. You pay for what you want at the time that you need it, and if your requirements change, you simply change your subscription. This means it is also easier to manage your cash flow and you don’t need upfront capital investment.

Build, deploy and manage new applications

The beauty of this approach is that you can still keep specialised or older business applications on premise, running your business effectively with a mixture of both types of solution. For software businesses, cloud computing enables you to quickly build, deploy and manage applications across a global network of datacentres. You can also build applications using any language, tool or framework.
