Information technology is increasingly required to deal with the demands for more demanding services and for the adoption of innovations , such as mobile devices, Internet of Things, Big Data and other technologies. In common between them, the need for a diversified and modern technological environment. Characteristic of the architecture offered by Cloud Computing.

In addition, many companies are unable to meet their digital transformation agendas that their businesses require through their current technology environments. Many of them lack the flexibility to scale or have rising costs to manage their demands, impeding innovation and growth.

A big challenge for Cloud Computing

Adopting new technologies is one of the strategic priorities many companies are pursuing today. Looking to provide new levels of engagement to their customers, revolutionize products, operations and business models, technology infrastructure has become a major challenge for organizations .

Cloud Computing emerges as a solution that meets the various requirements for new technology projects, such as reducing risks and cost control, cloud computing allows you to make the necessary changes while maintaining the company's operations.

Points to Consider When Selecting Cloud Computing Services

In addition to the rapid pace of innovation, companies need to evaluate new technologies to determine whether they will bring competitive advantage. And the choice of services related to Cloud Computing is no different. It is necessary to analyze different criteria before implementing a new computational architecture project to the projects.

1. Cloud management skills and experience

Having the necessary skills and experience in managing a Cloud Computing structure is a basic requirement for cloud service providers. It needs to operating system maintenance Check essentials like change management, virtualization, high availability, middleware and databases, multiple networking technologies, mobility and security.

2. Proactive and technology-based approach

Those providing cloud-based services need to have a proactive approach that emphasizes problem prevention and continuous improvement. It's much more than simple monitoring and device management. The use of technologies with advanced analysis can prevent incidents, analyze failure patterns in platforms and processes and offer visibility in the improvement of services to its customers.

3. Alignment with industry best practices and standards

The key to achieving a more reliable and highly available infrastructure in the cloud is to optimize the management of all the technology used. A service provider should employ industry best practices in managing its IT resources. Best practices address management of issues, incidents, events, changes, configuration, inventory, capacity and performance management, and reporting.

4. Multi-vendor support with performance-based service level agreements (SLAs)

A Cloud Computing architecture is typically heterogeneous, comprising different vendors of hardware, software, and networking products. That is why the need and importance of having strong support from suppliers. To ensure this support both from suppliers of technology products and the services offered, having performance-based service level agreements ensures that the responsibility for the performance of the solutions rests with the service provider.
