Is it Time to Future-Proof Your Business? (POLL)

“Future Proof” – I”ve been hearing that phrase thrown around quite a bit these days.  As a wanna-be futurist, not all that shocking, but get’s me to wondering what are the rest of you out there thinking?  Is your start-up or existing business ready to take on this new breed of business that’s emerging – or today’s consumer expectations?

Surely My Business is Safe!

Whether you sell ice to Eskimos, save the Eskimos habitat or make highly sophisticated training manuals for the Eskimos of the world – there’s no avoiding the fact that building and maintaining a successful business requires use, discipline and mastering of  technology.  Today’s technology.

A decade, heck even 5 years ago, having a great website to support well managed organizations that prided themselves on excellent customer satisfaction could go pretty far.  That was when sales calls were still “calls” – right?

Today’s Businesses Face a New Reality

Today’s technology has advanced to where websites should more aptly be called “Platforms” – where engagement with brands and with each other online is the new normal – even in business.  Where screen size (PC, tablet, mobile) is a huge fat question mark – yet you’d better be ready to have your business play nice with any of them.

Just  launching your own start-up (Congrats!)?
Perhaps Mr. Boss appointed you to handle strategy for mobile, social or website overhaul?

-I’d love to hear where your biggest priorities are as we blaze through the remainder of 2012.
I will share results of the poll in early August.
It will also help shape Atlantic BT marketing efforts, supporting our existing and future clients – clients we like to consider our business partners.

Questions & Answers

1 Are there differences in application architecture that are important for the cloud?
It is important to build applications and workloads specifically for the cloud. You will want to carefully consider what services the cloud provider of your choice has to offer and how your application leverages those services.
Learn More
1 Are there any drawbacks to cloud hosting?
Yes, there will always be some risks associated with any hosting option. You are relying on the resiliency and engineering of infrastructure that has scaled at an astounding rate.
Learn More
1 What’s the benefit of hosting in the cloud vs. traditional options?
Reasons not to host in the cloud are few and far between. If you don't host in the cloud, you will spend more in both CapEx and OpEx to manage your applications or websites in a traditional environment.

1 How can I improve the performance of my application?
There are several primary reasons that applications perform poorly, and in some cases it’s a combination of several. 1) Data latency: If your application is making calls to a data source (whether it’s an API or a direct call) and there is latency at the data provider, your application performance will suffer.
Learn More
1 Should I move my application to the cloud?
The answer is ‘probably yes’. There aren’t many reasons for an application to be hosted elsewhere, aside from occasional compliance standards, or requirements to integrate with local services that would require large amounts of data to move from on-premise to cloud.

1 Where should my application be hosted?
There are many different options for hosting, but most applications would do well with one of the cloud providers -- Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure.
