Why it Matters to Have an IBM i Cloud Expert
With many companies considering a move to the cloud, it’s important to note that not all clouds are created equally. There are many providers for cloud hosting. Some are application providers who host the application and your data in their cloud, and others host your infrastructure. Some are experts in the hardware and OS and others are application experts. You should consider what is most important to your company before you select a cloud provider.
It’s important to start with the end goal in mind. What do you want to accomplish long term? Is it the complete outsourcing of IT or are you just looking to replace your hardware and you are not looking to purchase it? Are you looking to implement DR or HA and you don’t have a second location? Do you want to rely more on the application vendor? Are you looking for someone to manage your environment? Or is the goal to save money?
