What Describes Your Situation Best?
Choosing a Cloud Solution:
- I have limited or no IT staff to devote to additional offices.
- I want to devote my headquarters IT staff to strategic business initiatives and leave IP telephony and UC as a managed service.
- I want the flexibility to easily scale communications services as the business requires, paying for them as a monthly, per person expense.
- I don’t want to be tied into systems that may never be fully utilized or long term contracts.
- I want help managing adds, moves, changes that come with expansion.
- I want to consolidate providers.
Choosing a Premises Solution:
- I have an IT staff and can dedicate them locally to support new offices.
- I want to leverage and expand my existing equipment investments.
- I have this initiative budgeted as a capital expense to be depreciated over the life of the products.
- I want to control and secure the deployment, management and updates for the new offices’ employees and integrate them with other business applications.
- I am in an industry that may have compliance and privacy requirements that could preclude cloud deployments.
