How to Take Your Business to the Cloud

The Right Partner Can Smooth Your Way

Kurt Hildebrand

More than likely, your organization is thinking about building – or has already started down the road to building – a cloud computing solution. There are a lot of questions and challenges you face as you embark on this new path, and the best thing you can do for your organization is to employ an expert guide to take you on your virtual journey.

Connection Enterprise Solutions wanted to move part of their infrastructure to the cloud. In order to ensure a successful transition, they engaged the Connection Professional Services team to design and implement a managed services environment, built on a standards-based infrastructure from Tier 1 manufacturers.

Since Connection, like every organization, had some unique needs, the Services team employed 4 steps to ensure a successful implementation:

  • Investigating and interviewing user needs
  • Analyzing business requirements
  • Conducting comparative and cost analyses of different specific hardware and equipment options
  • Providing consulting recommendations based on their extensive industry experience

In this episode of our Connection Point podcast, I join President of Connection Enterprise Solutions, John Thomas, as well as Carlos Covarrubias, Vice President of Systems for Connection Enterprise Solutions, to talk about this project and how Connection used the same services we offer to all our customers to overcome design challenges and build their new cloud environment.
