Cloud Bridge hits the headlines!
In this recent interview by the Sunday Times, our MD, Simon Walker shares his insights on how a cloud partner can break down barriers for SMEs and secure transformative success.
The interview appeared in a special Digital Transformation report, published by Raconteur, and distributed in the Sunday Times earlier this month.

"80% of businesses on the cloud agree that cloud computing has made it easier for their business to compete with bigger enterprises.'
The article includes the results of recently commissioned research carried out by AWS which shows:
The growth that digital tech could drive for the UK economy.
The barriers to cloud computing.
The significant benefits that can be achieved by migrating - including cost savings and secure data storage.
"Making the move to the cloud can be a game changer for SMEs - it can enable them to compete with the big players."
Simon explains that by using 'right-sized' infrastructure that can scale any time, and by powering off systems when not in use, businesses can achieve significant savings. In addition, access to machine learning, AI and data analytics capabilities are just some of the benefits available.
Plus, working with a cloud partner will unlock access to funding for migration or specific service rollouts.
This is transforming access to the cloud for SMEs.
Overcoming cloud barriers
Exploring cost barriers and fear of bill shock: Simon explains that a like-for-like comparison between existing IT and cloud is the wrong approach; whereas a partner can forecast the cost of cloud migration precisely, establishing the right architecture and modernising operations to improve costs.
Cloud Bridge's 24/7 managed support also helps businesses to handle ongoing cloud usage.
And whilst 40% of businesses are worried about security issues, Simon explains that the level of security offered in the cloud and via additional services provided by Cloud Bridge, far exceeds what SMEs can achieve themselves.
