Businesses who decide to make the transition using internal resources typically aim to get up and running in a couple of months. However, companies that make the switch on their own, often run into unexpected obstacles that can delay the process for months on end.
ITMS as their cloud services partner can expect to be fully deployed in less than 2 weeks with virtually no downtime.
While ITMS will get most businesses up and running in an average of 10 days, the complexity of the move will ultimately determine the timeline.
These three factors affect the time it takes to move a business’ data to the cloud:
- Size of the Business. Biggerand businesses are more likely to have a large amount of data and/or complex networks. When this is the case, the transition to the cloud will typically take longer.
- Age of the Business. Like bigger businesses, older businesses typically have more data as well as a greater number of legacy systems and processes that need to be converted. Often, transitioning data from older legacy systems is more complex and requires some additional time.
