IT modernization as a starting point for going digital
What are the drivers and challenges? And how does the cloud fit in?
The Herculean task of modernizing IT and dismantling legacy systems
IT modernization and the associated replacement of legacy IT is a key issue for public sector customers and German SMBs. In the IDC white paper, “Data Sovereignty in the Cloud,” 61 percent of respondents said they plan to increase their use of the cloud in the medium to long term. However, an acute skills shortage and a lack of knowledge about the how and where are proving to be hurdles. We can show you the solutions and help you transform!

Top reasons for using cloud services
Using clouds in highly secure data centers
In IDC’s recent white paper, “Data Sovereignty in the Cloud,” 27 percent of respondents say they are using the cloud to improve their IT security. The analysts confirm that cloud providers use advanced cybersecurity tools and apply IT industry best practices in their data centers. Organizations are often unable to achieve this level of security on their own, and often experience security incidents largely due to their legacy IT. Approximately one-quarter of respondents cited increasing outages and successful cyberattacks as the reason for their modernization project.
Simplified & unified infrastructure
For 25 percent of respondents, one of the greatest strengths of cloud computing is the establishment of standards in the IT infrastructure and application landscape. Standards make IT operations much easier. This applies not only to the integration of solutions, the elimination of silos, or the streamlining of processes through automation, but also to the transparency of processes. When these aspects are addressed, organizations are much better positioned to implement new digital business models and innovations.
Flexibility in tough times
Another reason for the cloud is very timely. For 23 percent of decision makers, cloud computing is an appropriate tool to increase their resilience. Robust business operations are a must in the face of uncertain markets and ecosystems. As a result, the concept of resilience is receiving more attention than in the past.
Reducing manual tasks
The cloud provides several opportunities to automate repetitive and manual tasks. By deploying tools and services in the cloud, organizations can simplify processes such as provisioning, configuring, monitoring, and scaling resources. This minimizes manual intervention and increases efficiency.
