70% of US organizations now use some form of private, public or a hybrid mix of cloud models, so seems like a pretty easy decision for your customers, right? But, it can be more difficult than you’d think if there is insufficient planning involved.

First, customers need to identify what is most important to them when they make the transition. Many will say security. There is a common fear that the cloud won’t be more secure than their internal data centers. In today’s world, many cloud offerings take pride in their cloud security. Take the time to research options and obtain 3rd-party reports to help your customers feel secure.

Second, make sure you have services to help customers migrate to the cloud. Many times customers need to connect legacy systems to cloud applications. For this, hybrid options are essential. Many vendors provide services to accompany these types of deployments so don’t forget to quote them in the total solution.

Third, help customers to see their potential saving opportunities. Not only in the switch from cap ex to op ex, but in time to market. With cloud comes greater flexibility options, reducing implementation issues, saving time with faster application development and server provisioning and consistent hardware utilization.

Moving to the cloud doesn’t have to be a daunting process with proper consideration – and can be extremely effective for companies looking to be more efficient and save costs.
