The transition of corporate IT to the cloud is well underway for most organizations and progressing at a pace that is most likely faster than expected, as it has become common practice for business leaders to sidestep IT and procure non-mission-critical cloud services that address specific needs – web service tools, email/collaboration tools, app development/testing environments, etc.
In the beginning, this practice wasn’t terribly problematic. But times have changed. Cloud solutions have significantly evolved; cloud architectures have increased in variety and complexity; integration across an IT landscape is paramount; and businesses are now tapping the cloud with greater frequency to handle heavier workloads and drive core processes. While cost savings and the OPEX versus CAPEX aspect of MCaaS are certainly appealing, the decision to implement a cloud-based solution increasingly hinges on the question of business value – both near and long term.
At Optimal, we’re excited to add MCaaS to our portfolio of SAP solutions, and we remain committed to leveraging the full force of our 18+ years of industry experience, deep SAP expertise, and sustained investment in SAP offerings to ensure that our customers’ entire SAP journey — in the cloud and on-premise — aligns perfectly with their unique business needs and objectives.
