Making cloud a force for change in your business

Cloud computing hasn’t just changed the rules, it’s a whole new game.

The evolution and rapid delivery of applications and services over the internet as well as the ability to scale, deploy and consume as a service and on-demand unlocks endless opportunities for organisations to focus on creating customer value, differentiating themselves from competitors, and optimising their business and technology.

Businesses are re-evaluating what’s possible. If you want to put time and energy into the what, rather than the how, Inde can help.

As one of New Zealand’s most experienced and independent IT professional service companies, our team can work with you to undertake functional and technical assessments of your business objectives, applications and existing infrastructure to develop an outcome-focused plan that defines new possibilities.

Inde have managed some of Australasia’s largest cloud migrations, as many as 6,000 seats across multiple locations, and as technical leaders in our field, we can help you get your business to where it needs to go.

A customer-centric view of engagements drives our approach. We look at the process of migrating your business to the cloud from the point of view of your end-users – what is their experience when the change happens, how will this make them feel, what support do they need, how does what we do and the way we do it affect them? This viewpoint doesn’t just include what happens after the change, but the preparation that the change is coming and what it means to them.

Our cooperative approach ensures that your users, management and support staff are taken on the journey together. This also doesn’t end once your business has been moved to the cloud; our follow-up process ensures any issues post-migration are identified and solved.

Cloud computing types

Cloud computing is the on-demand delivery of IT resources over the Internet with pay-as-you-go pricing. Instead of buying, owning, and maintaining physical data centres and servers, you can access technology platforms and services, such as computing power, storage, and databases, on an as-needed basis from a cloud provider.

The three main types of cloud computing include Infrastructure as a Service, Platform as a Service, and Software as a Service. Each type of cloud computing provides different levels of control, flexibility, and management so that you can select the right set of services for your needs.

1. Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

IaaS contains the basic building blocks for cloud IT. It typically provides access to networking features, computers (virtual or on dedicated hardware), and data storage space. IaaS gives you the highest level of flexibility and management control over your IT resources. It is similar to the existing IT resources with which many IT departments and developers are familiar, just delivered by a provider.

2. Platform as a Service (PaaS)

PaaS removes the need for you to manage underlying infrastructure (usually hardware and operating systems) and allows you to focus on the deployment and management of your applications. This helps you be more efficient as you don’t need to worry about resource procurement, capacity planning, software maintenance, patching, or any of the other undifferentiated heavy lifting involved in running your application leaving you to concentrate on delivering business value rather than keeping the lights on.

3. Software as a Service (SaaS)

SaaS provides you with a complete product that is run and managed by the service provider. In most cases, people referring to SaaS are referring to end-user applications (such as web-based email). With a SaaS offering, you don’t have to think about how the service is maintained or how the underlying infrastructure is managed. You only need to think about how you use the software to enable business benefit.
