Why should you move your Email to the Cloud?
Our research has shown that over 95% of the customers are considering moving some if not all of their IT infrastructure to the Cloud. However most of the companies we speak to have the same problem and that is convincing the key stakeholders of the benefits in doing so.
In our experience, the quickest win and perhaps the most beneficial one is moving your Email to the Cloud. The below lists all the commercial and technical benefits of moving your Email to the Cloud. Some, if not all of these benefits are just too compelling to ignore.
Unlike other benefits lists you’ve probably seen, we have purposely steered away from proclaiming financial savings as these figures tend to be too generic. We have stuck to the plain commercial facts of moving to the Cloud and expressed it in a language that any FD or MD will understand and appreciate.
