SMBs that plan to transit to cloud computing should avoid the most egregious deployment mistakes by following these tips …

– Plan for cloud security upfront

Most of those in IT won’t dig your initial movement to cloud computing, and they’ll spout the usual FUD around security and whatnot. It’s best to take this off the table as an install issue by providing a formal plan and technology solution. In this plan, make sure to include security testing and validation, which should put most fears to rest and move you to a much more secure final solution.

– Include as many staff as you can in the review process

Many cloud projects operate like they are secret projects in SMBs. However, the best strategy is to include as many staff as you can in the process of defining, designing, and deploying your move to Cloud. As they walk through the progress of the project — perhaps in monthly review sessions and demonstrations — they’ll learn about the concepts and the technology, and trepidation will quickly fall.

– Create a plan and a set of (realistic) goals upfront

Some SMBs are jumping into Cloud without envisioning a long-term cloud strategy and how it may relate to their overall mission. As with any project, establish realistic goals and priorities, a crystal budget and deadline, as well as a shared knowledge of what resources are available for implementation and maintenance. Although cloud computing promises significant ROI — productivity gains of 50 percent or more — keeping complexity and cost to a minimum requires planning and strategy.

These factors and more will be covered; we look forward to your attendance!
