When businesses today consider the future of their IT, cloud is always part of the conversation, and rightfully so. Improvements in technology over the past decade have enabled many functions to be accomplished through a cloud service that previously required servers.
Anytime a business needs to make an IT decision, the primary focus should be value. Change always has a cost – be it the time to implement or train staff in a new system, the cost of the unknowns in the new system (versus the knowns of the current system), or the actual hard cost in dollars of new technology. In any case, a business almost always decides to make a change because they are confident that the value delivered by the new system will outweigh its costs and risks, and it will do so by ultimately increasing the company’s productivity and efficiency.

Once a business makes the decision to move their desktops to the cloud, there are dozens of factors to consider and many providers to choose from.
Here are 6 of the most important factors to consider when moving desktops to the cloud.
If you’re a small CPA firm (think 10-50 employees), your IT scenario is probably as follows: You have a local IT consultant or MSP that you rely on and trust to help you make the right IT decisions for your firm. Perhaps you have someone in-house to help with desktop support (either a dedicated person or the employee who is stuck being the go-to for support in addition to his or her regular job), and every so often, when faced with an IT problem (outage, security breach or employee complaint) or large expense (repair, replacement, or upgrade), you find yourself wondering if there’s a better way.
