The Ice Cream Curve - why moving to cloud is probably something for you
Don't let your costly environment hold you back in the race for the title!
Imagine a sunny summer day in the middle of July... As you stroll down to the beach, you feel the heat crawling into your skin and you decide to go grab an ice cream. You know the perfect place and it's just around the corner. As you round the corner you see a huge line of at least 30 people in front of you! People in the queue are starting to get anxious due to the time and heat. The ice cream crew are stressed, performing poorly and are unable to keep their customers happy.
Now, in the same way the ice cream crew are struggling, you and your on-premise infrastructure will face the same future. Like the weather, your on-premise infrastructure, -software or -platform needs vary in a highly unpredictable matter. Times with high demands on your on-premise environment makes you invest in more hardware and software that you actually need, adding more cost to your already costly IT budget. This cost will not be justified once the demand decreases, then you will be seated with unused expensive infrastructure. Money that could have been spent on innovation that could really be a game changer compare to your opponents, or investing into your core business that brings value.
