Cloud Services Adoption Highlights:

  • #Security: 5 in 10 IT professionals and executives believe that when facing hardware malfunctions, environmental disasters and malicious attacks their organization’s data is safer in a private cloud configuration. This as compared to public cloud and on-premise data centers
  • #Growth: Adoption continues to accelerate. Today on average, organizations have 4.9 services in the cloud with 74.5 percent of respondents planning on adding new or additional cloud services in the next three years
  • #Fail?: 53% of organizations have deployed a cloud solution on their own; up from 43 percent in 2014. However, when asked if they had to start the deployment over, nearly half (48.5%) said they would outsource to a solution provider the next time
  • #NoITinTeam: about 1/3 of all departments have their own cloud solution in place and IT was only consulted on ½ of the projects

“The biggest benefit was the ability to reduce our overall recovery time objectives (RTO) from 48 hours or more to four hours or less with near real-time recovery points. We were able to do this while reducing our disaster recovery operational expenses. Additionally, our staff is lean and mean, and we’re now able to conduct a full disaster recovery exercise without leaving the office.”

Rusty Lorenzon – Leaf Commercial Capital

“During one of the recent storms we lost connectivity in a key location, immediately the phones started ringing in the backup site. All the emergency routing intelligence was in the cloud and it understood instantly if a branch office was down. It worked fantastically.”

You can’t quantify the value Evolve IP’s services brought to our organization. It dramatically increased our service levels and simultaneously allowed us to focus on other issues.

“The combination of the technical knowledge and relentless customer service at Evolve IP is hard to find … it helped ensure connectivity for our employees, and eliminated any concern over the status and transfer of our voice and data networks. I don’t think the move could have been any more successful.”

“We typically try to look at costs from the standpoint of, how many cakes do we have to sell to cover it? In this case, Evolve IP helped reduce that number greatly.”
