Why it’s not a surprise that companies are moving to the Videocall collaboration cloud?

It’s no longer a surprise when companies including Britvic, Clarks, Lendlease, Simmons & Simmons, Mills & Reeve or Fujitsu come to Videocall to start a conversation about migration of their unified collaboration to the cloud, but when you look deeper at it, why should it have ever have been a surprise?

The cloud is no longer news, it is common place in the world of IT and business services for companies of all sizes. Whilst it is fair to say that it has always been easier for SME’s to make the move to the cloud, it has not stopped enterprise and multinational corporations from also making the same move. The business outcomes and ROI on offer are far too big to ignore after all, no matter the initial challenge.

When you consider what the move to the cloud for IT offers; ease of use and flexibility to work from anywhere, reliability, release of internal pressures, software updates, a high level of security, improved ROI, TCO and the opportunity to move from a CapEx to OpEx, it is easy to understand how the cloud has come to dominate the IT sector. The change in working practices, millennials and technology advancements are all reasons that companies are making the move, alongside ageing on-premises servers, increasing maintenance costs and specialist skill sets required for support.

Wherever you look, there is a great reason for companies to move servers, platforms and services to the cloud, but where does that leave the collaboration cloud?

The point this blog is trying to make is that the Videocall collaboration cloud that ITE Group, Linklaters and Seventh Day Adventists, have all moved to offers all the same functionality, features and benefits that you would find across the cloud in IT. On top of that, the collaboration cloud offers high level quality audio and video, interoperability and functionality that is required within the enterprise arena for collaborative meetings.

Just like other forms of cloud services, the collaboration cloud can be deployed publicly, privately, on-premises or as a hybrid, dependant on company requirements. In our series of blogs on the collaboration cloud we will be looking at each of these types of cloud and looking at the particular business benefits that have been delivered to Videocall clients.

Videocall’s skills in unified collaboration help enterprise companies be lifted to the cloud. As an agnostic unified collaboration service provider, we are a world class integrator and have our own cloud platform in ICE (Intelligent Cloud Experience) that provides enterprise level functionality and applications.

If your business strategy is cloud-first across the whole company then starting your conversation today with Videocall as many large enterprise companies have been doing, would make a lot of sense.

However, if your company strategy is not cloud first, then talking to Videocall today is even more important. We can help you understand what options are available whether that is staying on-premises or starting a migration through a hybrid solution.
