Understanding the ROI: Philadelphia IT Consulting

Return on investment (ROI) is often the cornerstone of C-level decision-making, particularly when investing in IT services. And with the ubiquity of cloud services in the marketplace, many businesses either hold off on adoption or go all in - assuming that their spend is synonymous with optimization. However, in both cases, the effects can be a costly reminder that there is no substitution for expert consulting.

Reigning in Cloud Spend

Modern businesses understand how crucial cloud-based resources are to productivity and the bottom line. And for good reason.

  • Applications can be used and integrated across devices

  • The cloud offers a seemingly infinite capacity for performance

  • Scalable, high-availability, and on-demand IT services

  • Flexibility that can be built around diverse employee structures / configurations

However, while collaboration tools have been shown to increase productivity by as much as 400%, more cloud doesn't necessarily translate to a better cloud. Current estimates show that companies overpay for cloud services by as much as 36%. This figure pales in comparison to on-premise data centers, 80% of which have more server capacity than necessary. The compounded effect of this excess spending causes companies to spend upwards of $62 billion annually, worldwide. 

Fortunately, iCorps' technicians can help businesses optimize their cloud spend. Our consultants take into consideration the current computing infrastructure and end-user work stations. Then, they assess server performance data (including central processing unit and memory utilization), network traffic, messaging data, and extant messaging system architecture.
