We are always wary of talking about using “the Cloud” as it has connotations of fluffiness and lack of control – but we’d prefer to think about securely hosted IT systems accessible from anywhere. Here one releatively new user – patent attorneys, Wildbore & Gibbons talk you through their rationale and experience of the move to securely hosted IT systems, which reflects our experience of working with a wide variety of legal practices and providers of hosted services … provided you choose the right provider for your practice … which is where we come in to help you make the right decisions.
Options in this area are developing rapidly now, so suppliers that had the best solution last year, may not be the best solution for you now – so you need advice to compare suppliers and the various options available (hosted, multi-tenanted, hybrid – managed by your team or by the suppliers – all of which is possible) and to compare against the relative benefits and costs of potentially continuing with your servers etc on premise.
There are many considerations beyond cost – the user experience, levels of support, degree of automation / customised help available, limitations on applications …. etc. so please contact us for at least a free preliminary discussion before you go too far down the line.
If you are considering a move to the Cloud / hosted IT systems, please contact us – Andrew Simmans or Michael McGuire on 0161 929 8355 or via firstname.lastname@example.org
