The days when avoiding the Cloud was a defensible position for a business are gone. Recent research has shown that a move to the public cloud pays off in many tangible ways beyond less spending on hardware. Despite fears to the contrary, the Cloud helps businesses improve security and while many businesses believe data access on the Cloud is slower than on-premise, businesses on the Cloud are 60% more likely to report improved data access performance.

Cloud Services

A key driver for organisations to effectively take advantage of other new technologies

Supporting the Adoption of New Technologies

The days when avoiding the Cloud was a defensible position for a business are gone. Recent research has shown that a move to the public cloud pays off in many tangible ways beyond less spending on hardware, as shown in the table below. Here we find that despite fears to the contrary, the Cloud helps businesses improve security. And, while many businesses believe data access on the Cloud is slower than on-premise, businesses on the Cloud are 60% more likely to report improved data access performance.

 

Gaining the Benefits of Moving to the Cloud 

Businesses that have leveraged the public cloud are:

20% more likely to report improved security
2x more likely to see reductions in CapEx spending
60% more likely to have faster access to data

 

However, the direct benefits of the public cloud just scratch the surface of the tangible gains businesses realise, and that’s because one of the most important benefits is how Cloud becomes a driver for organisations to effectively take advantage of other new technologies and digitally transform their business.

Where are you on Your Cloud Journey?

Moving to the Cloud isn’t about shutting down your on-premise capabilities and putting everything in the cloud — it’s about adding the Cloud to your IT toolbox. Leading businesses utilise the best capabilities of both their on-premise and cloud systems to make each element perform at its best. If you want to leverage the technology of today, Cloud must be a key part of your IT infrastructure.

Arrk has identified a defined Cloud journey that the majority of organisations are embarking on, broken down into five key competencies Arrk calls this journey: EMOTO™

Regardless of where your organisation is on this voyage, Arrk has a range of Cloud services which can help your organisation better use the Cloud to your competitive advantage. We work with a variety of UK organisations across a spectrum of sectors on a range of projects which span the whole of the journey.

Solutions Aligned to the Needs of Your Business

For customers looking to implement cloud solutions, Arrk’s approach to cloud services seeks to understand business need first before getting into technology.   We use a collaborative Lean-Agile discovery process which, depending on the organisation and the specific cloud challenge, may involve some or all of users of the system, business stakeholders, sponsors, product leads as well as members of the IT team.

Our experienced team of Arrkitects run a series of collaborative workshops to understand your as-is processes, how the current solutions are deployed, the persona’s that utilise those applications and the goals they wish to achieve.  As we progress we identify pain points, technical and business spikes that need to be addressed and, where appropriate to the customer, idealised to-be end states for your processes and cloud solutions.  The outcomes from this process inform our cloud recommendations and help ensure that change is aligned to the needs of the business and isn’t simply technology change for technologies sake.

We work with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Microsoft Azure.  We deliver cloud services that are right for your business.
