Cloud Migration—What You Need to Know
With the move to remote working world-wide, the cloud has played an increasingly crucial role in business continuity. Cloud implementations and migrations for some organisations were executed quickly to cope with the increased impact on infrastructure due to the coronavirus pandemic. For firms still moving towards migrating or implementing a cloud document management solution, there are important factors to consider.
Know Your Data (KYD)
What do firms need to do?
Anyone moving their content must ensure they have a really solid picture of what exists, how it’s organised and of any inconsistencies that will need to be dealt with before migrating to the cloud. Know Your Data is a focus of RBRO as we support our clients with their move.
What are the implications of not doing this?
- Legacy systems have content that has mounted up over many years.
- Often, the content has been added by less than compliant means, i.e. data may exist that doesn’t follow the business rules of the application, thus bringing in possible GDPR compliance issues.
- Data may not be organised as effectively as necessary for a move, causing a delay in your cloud migration.
What are the implications of moving to the cloud?
Data Residency is a significant concern for many firms. Does the solution you are looking at take this into account and provide options?
How secure is the data?
Major cloud providers are driven to keep client data secure, often better than organisations can themselves. Protecting data from external hackers only forms part of data security. It’s also paramount that data is protected internally from tampering and misuse.
Mobility – Does everybody have access to your data at any time from anywhere?
Give everyone in your firm the ability to work anytime from anywhere, from any device. A cloud DMS will give access to your content based on privacy rights, from anywhere in the world. Every client, every matter, every document, every email.
