The future of cloud computing has arrived!
‘Cloud computing’ allows the storage of software and files online, giving people the ability access them from any device with an internet connection. Multi-cloud systems link multiple specialist systems in a way that can better resolve business operations. Both cloud and multi-cloud approaches reduce the need to maintain and develop systems onsite while facilitating the exchange of secure and timely information.
In the disability sector, moving to the cloud gives service providers the opportunity to cut IT management costs and reinvest those savings into mission and core services and business.
To assist the sector to take advantage of cloud based efficiencies NDS has partnered with cloud-based providers iplanit and Easy Employer to create an integrated ‘multi-cloud’, solution for client and workforce management.
According to recent research, business tends to prefer a multi-cloud strategy. This helps avoid the ‘all eggs in one basket’ problem that can leave businesses vulnerable to a variety of issues, such as cloud data centre outages, bandwidth problems and vendor lock-in.
Data sovereignty and compliance issues are also leading to a surge in multi-cloud as organisations worry about data security and personal privacy. No two IT environments are ever alike so organisational need, budget and desired outcomes must all be considerations when moving to the cloud.
NDS’ collaboration with leading cloud suppliers of client and workforce management is a big step toward providing the disability sector with leading edge technology solution that provides innovative and efficient NDIS ready solutions.
In a growing tech and disability market, multi-cloud creates a new front in the so-called “cloud computing wars.” This is good news for those providers looking for flexibility, cost savings and ultimately better solutions.
