Did you know that many types of businesses would benefit by integrating cloud and on premise systems? This is due to the fact that many organizations that operate under strict security compliance requirements need to have some of their digital infrastructure managed and located on premise, but will also benefit by have some data and applications hosted in the cloud. A good example of this is the banking industry. Government administration is another one. The bottom line is that although we count on cloud based systems for many applications, it just is not possible for every business.
The solution is a hybrid environment that combines both cloud based infrastructure and on-premise applications. On-premise platforms provide businesses with a significantly higher level of control. Cloud based systems provide businesses with a significantly higher level of flexibility. A hybrid system provides businesses with the best of both. Business leaders must identify the benefits that each system provides. They also need to decide on which platform to focus more on for maximum returns on their investment.
Simply implementing a digital based infrastructure is not enough. The fact of the matter is that end-to-end integrations are necessary to maximize the system as a whole. The bottom line is that if you have multiple systems currently in operation, it may be necessary to connect them to each other and provide end-user access that is not cumbersome. That way you can automate your business process and vastly improve both the efficiency and productivity of the organization. It almost goes without saying that cloud based platforms have grown in popularity in recent years.
That is based on their capability to provide organizations with such things as workflow agility and flexible scalability as the organization grows and expands their products and services. However, on-premise platforms have some important advantages that cloud based applications do not. For example, on-premise solutions provide a higher level of control over the system and many times, a fixed, onetime cost. That is why business leaders and IT decision makers must consider the differences between the two solutions, identify a hybrid system that will work best, implement that system, and monitor it for the best results.
Integration of a cloud based application and an on-premise system provides your organization with an automated exchange of consistent data. Without integration, a system in one department of an organization receiving a data update will not have that data reflected in the systems of other departments that may need it.
