USE THE CLOUD TO INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY, RESILIENCE AND REDUCE IT MANAGEMENT HEADACHES
Let us show you what cloud computing can do for your business.
We can educate you
You have heard that the cloud can transform your business, but the myriad of technologies, vendors make it hard to know what does what. Let us cut through the jargon and explain to you in plain English what different cloud technologies are and how you may be able to take advantage of them in your business.
Increase the reliability, resiliency and security of your IT
For most small and medium business, using cloud SaaS (software as a service) will provide you with a much more reliable, resilient and secure IT. This is because instead of setting up and managing all the IT infrastructure required to run the IT systems, you allow the experts to do that and you just need to worry about how you will use the system features to improve your business. Well known SaaS style offerings will be able to offer better reliability and security compared to what an SME can do themselves while reducing your IT management headaches.
Infrastructure review and recommendations
Every business is different and what works for one company may not work for another. We can conduct a full review of your IT infrastructure, and systems and provide a comprehensive list of recommendations on what systems can be migrated to the cloud, why moving them to the cloud will benefit your business and estimates on capital and operating costs.
Cloud automation / “DevOps”
You are using the cloud and you are comfortable with the technology, but you want to get higher efficiencies by taking advantage of the automation afforded by cloud IaaS or PaaS. PicNet can assist you in maturing your cloud IT practices by implementing automation whereby infrastructure and services can be provisioned, de-provisioned and changed through code

COMPANIES THAT WE HAVE ASSISTED IN USING THE CLOUD
Some of our Case Studies
FILE SYSTEM MIGRATION AND SIMPLIFICATION
Every company whether big or small have a need for a system to store files and documents. Although size normally also determines complexity, due to segregation of duties, company structure or as legacy or organic growth, some small business have rather complex file storage and access requirements. Migrating files and document storage from an in-house system to the cloud, will not only increase reliability, scalability, security and useability, it can also provide an opportunity for business to review their filing structure and simplify how and where their files and documents are stored.
Complex file system with no room for growth
The CYCA had company file and document storage system that had organically grown over the years to be rather complex with many different access groups, dozens of different network drives and the existing in-house storage infrastructure had run out of space for growth. Users didn’t like to work from home because accessing files, required the use of the company VPN which at the time was cumbersome and slow.
Increased productivity and user satisfaction with less complexity
PicNet migrated the CYCA files system to SharePoint online and in the process drove a process of review and simplification of the filing structure. The result was that users could now securely access company files conveniently from any computer with an internet connection, allowing users to work from home (in time for COVID lockdown) and room for future data growth.
