What is Cloud Computing?
At BCX, we help you optimise Cloud Computing to change the way you do business, so that you can prepare your organisation for the future. It is all about navigating your way through the digital landscape, using internet-based remote platforms that are ‘hosted’ in the Cloud. These not only store data and documents, but also run your mission-critical business processes and software applications, enabling colleagues to collaborate in a secure and flexible way. You do not need to have complex, expensive infrastructure or hardware equipment at your own office locations, so you can control costs and focus on running your business.
Colleagues can store, access, share, and edit business information, no matter where they are, from any connected device. You will also have peace of mind that software applications and platforms are being maintained and updated remotely, and that your critical business processes are being run in a 99% available environment. You can decrease or increase your capacity in the cloud as and when you need it, so you can control your monthly expenses, and because your data and documents are stored in the cloud, they are secure and easy to recover and manage.
When you partner with BCX to implement Cloud Solutions, you have the flexibility to choose between Private Cloud, Public Cloud, and Hybrid Cloud – using elements of both Public and Private Cloud. Private Cloud can be run on your own network or from the BCX data centres, through a single, personalised platform, and offers the highest level of security and control over your data and processes. Public Cloud is the most cost-efficient way to manage your processes, as you only pay for the resources and systems that you use, and you can increase and decrease capacity as your business needs change. Hybrid Cloud is a mix of both, accessing external resources when you need them, but maintaining infrastructure on your premises to retain control and ensure security.
We serve a range of industries across both the public and private sectors, so we have the experience and knowledge to tailor a solution that is appropriate for your industry and company size. Our BCX Cloud Computing portfolio extends across Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Microsoft Collaboration Suite, and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) tools, such as SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud (SAP HEC).
