In 2017 Greenlight Computers launched a new service for clients for the administration and management of their software assets & licence renewals. Cloud administration is a growing problem for many businesses with most software now being on a Cloud subscription charging model.
Greenlight Computers Cloud Administration Service
By 2020 it is expected that 95% of software will be procured on a monthly per user subscription basis. Each instance will be a relatively modest monthly charge but when aggregated together software subscriptions will overtake hardware as a cost for your business. On average, your business will be procuring 20 plus different software tools including:
- Office suite
- Web hosting
- SSL certificates
- Project software
- Accounting software
- Collaboration tools: Box, Dropbox, Sharepoint etc
The challenge for the business is to find an individual in the company who can absorb this administration roll, someone technically competent, diligent & motivated to do the Cloud Administration.
Many of these systems require permission groups and security, so often an internal junior member of the team will not be appropriate from a security perspective.
Outsourcing this responsibility to your IT partner, a secure 3rd party, is often the most cost effective and secure way of managing your Cloud Administration.
