Cloud vs On-Premise: On-Premise is Still Going Strong

Cloud vs On-Premise: On-Premise is Still Going Strong

We recently came across a study published by Aberdeen Research group that is focussed on the growth of Cloud Solutions. Given all the recent headlines on the rapid growth of Cloud Solutions we were a bit surprised that the Aberdeen paper found that on-premise solutions are still going strong.

Below is an excerpt from the Aberdeen paper:

“Every day, one comes across statements or truisms that people take as common knowledge but that are actually wrong. For years now, we’ve heard the constant predictions that everything would be moved to the public cloud and that businesses, and especially small to mid-sized ones, would no longer need any on-premises infrastructure at all. But these predictions have proven to be inaccurate. In fact, Aberdeen research has shown that, over the last three years, organizations have actually increased their use of on-premises servers and infrastructure. Since 2018 deployments using private cloud and on-premises systems have nearly doubled.

Tied to all of these changes is the move to hybrid cloud, which is enabling organizations to get the most out of both their public cloud resources and their on-premises server capabilities. And in response to all of these changes, businesses came to the realization that the previous driver to put every workload on the Cloud was no longer the best strategy. In fact, many organizations have put this movement into reverse, and have moved workloads from the public cloud and back to on-premises implementations.”

Giving Thanks on Thanksgiving

HAPPY THANKSGIVING, Thanksgiving, Thanks, Giving Thanks, Plus Technologies

Giving Thanks on Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving was this past week and as the Nation takes the day off we acknowledge what we are thankful for. As a company Plus Technologies is thankful for all our hard working employees. In addition, Plus Technologies is very thankful for our customers and partners. A special thank you goes out to our service members who could not make it home for the holiday.

In 1789 George Washington proclaimed Thanksgiving a public holiday in the United States. For the next 74 years, Thanksgiving was celebrated by individual colonies and states. In 1863 Abraham Lincoln made Thanksgiving into a federal holiday. During the Civil War Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national day of “Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens.”
Since 1863 Thanksgiving has been celebrated on the last Thursday in November. In 1621, the “First Thanksgiving” took place when the Plymouth Colonists and the Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest.

Zero Footprint SAP Solution Provided for SaaS Environment

Zero Footprint SAP Solution Provided for SaaS Environment

A large organization in the medical radiology and imaging business needed to make multiple software technology transitions to update their IT infrastructure. This process included moving from on-premise systems to a hosted environment which included SaaS and IaaS solutions. Their incumbent enterprise output management system (HP Dazel – Opentext Output Server) would not run in their new environment architecture. Their electronic forms system (Adobe Central – Jetforms) would not run in the new environment either. In addition, they needed to move and upgrade their on-premise SAP ECC system to SAP Business Suite in the HANA Enterprise Cloud (HEC).

There were several challenges with this migration plan including a tight schedule, the HANA Enterprise Cloud SaaS solution not allowing 3rd party software to co-reside on the application, and a period of old system/new system overlap to allow for forms redevelopment.
