Obstacles You Should Consider Before Moving to the Cloud:
At Buchanan, we have witnessed a significant rise in the number of businesses moving to a SharePoint Online environment or rolling out a complete Office 365 workflow. This not only saves costs in the long run, but it’s quite frankly where the technology market is moving. We help customers with both IBM and Microsoft solutions, and we understand that moving to a Cloud-based workflow is only the beginning of the journey, and that finding IT staff to manage the new workflow is crucial to the ongoing success of the organization.

You need to consider the full scope of moving to the cloud, which would encompass a complete end-to-end solution that includes:
- A Cloud readiness assessment of your organization so that we can determine the best way to migrate existing technologies to a Cloud-based workflow. This will help you identify if you are able to make a 100% move to the cloud, or you need a hybrid solution, both in the cloud and on premise.
- Idenification of what is critical for a cloud move, critical applications for a disaster recovery program, and what can stay on premise, if that is your desire.
- A complete Cloud migration strategy that identifies solutions for all critical applications and data.
- Do you need contract-to-hire services where you have a SME (Subject Matter Expert) that can come into your organization and manage the move, and eventually become part of your team?
- Do you need contract only services where you are provided an experienced and qualified IT professional and SMEs for a specified length of time to help with your Cloud management and technical needs?
- Do you need to consider a direct hire, to supplement your team, hit the ground running by managing the transition?
The amount of talent and expertise you need, can be overwhelming. You may need Solution Architects, Business Consultants, Migration Specialists, Developers, Designers, Project Managers, or all of the above. You need to start with the cloud readiness assessment and decide what experience you have in house and what you may need to outsource.
Buchanan offers a complete solution that includes project management, contract services, contract to hire services, and direct hire services. Let our experience help you get the most out of your new Cloud workflow so that you can get on with the job of doing business!
