More and more software is moving to the cloud

Cloud software is the new mainstream. Many companies are moving to the cloud, leaving the choice of software application to be purchased to their business department, which is to work with it, and subsequently to their IT department, which decides on the IT-relevant criteria. Nevertheless, as a manager, I have to give the go-ahead. In doing so, I have to judge whether the choice is the right one. How do I proceed? What do I have to pay attention to?

Not uncommon today, even the most complex application can be accessed from anywhere using any device imaginable if you rely on the cloud

Solution Consideration

First of all, I need to be clear about what is good for the company.

Is the software supplier known on the market?

Software suppliers should be established on the market and still meet the requirements of the own company as far as possible.

Do you rely on a supplier who is available for the long term?

They should be available in the long term and not disappear from the market after a short time. Of course, I can only estimate that to a certain extent.

Solution implementation

Once you have zeroed in on a vendor, you look at other features of the vendor or its software offering that are essential, such as:

Is the cost/benefit ratio well balanced?

Furthermore, there should be a cost/benefit analysis. Nobody wants to pay more than is necessary.

What about support from the team?

Last but not least, ensure that the team receives sufficient support in case there are problems with the new system.

Have corporate guidelines been considered and adhered to when selecting cloud software?

In addition to all these factors, I need to make sure that the software selection team (IT and data protection) has looked at the criteria given to them.

Added value

Cloud software, if it comes from the right supplier, is an important and essential part of an enterprise landscape today. The advantages of using the software customized for the company are immeasurable nowadays. They also consist in

the reduction of risks for the company arising from the exchange of essential company information through e-mails
The possibilities are almost unlimited. But what about the risks of freely exchanging data via emails and other channels?
creating transparency for a wide range of stakeholders
Creating transparency for all stakeholders is almost invaluable for a successful business
the saving of time by eliminating the need for constant reconciliation of data outside of a (non-) existing central cloud system
Think of this as a workplace and fade away everything that only unnecessarily distracts from essential work
enabling flexible workplaces in terms of time and place!
