Improvement of the company's performance is still critical and highly-important among decision-makers but they strive to achieve this with less and or possibly minimal financial investments.
DataOne Asia, the leading independent provider of IT services in the Philippines, says that businesses can operate this way using the right technology such as cloud computing.
"Businesses that migrate their IT systems to the cloud could save at least 50 percent of their expenses. This is because the cloud minimizes the cost of infrastructure, management and support," says DataOne Asia President and CEO Cyril Rocke.
First, Rocke says that the cloud could help companies minimize expenses on procuring and maintaining their IT infrastructure.
"Most IT users tend to underestimate the cost of procuring infrastructure. Whenever a company wants to buy IT equipment like servers, they cannot do it in a snap. They need to follow a long procurement process where they have to justify the project, write cost-benefit analyses, and submit the necessary papers to different departments. Sometimes, there's even a need to hire IT experts that will decide which equipment is best for a company."
