follow us


The ever-changing digital landscape poses an ongoing challenge to keep ahead of the pack. You can overcome these hurdles when you switch to cloud computing. With cloud computing, you can manage your data and applications in a secure, scalable way.

We understand that the prospect of this type of change can be daunting, no matter your current level of expertise and knowledge. In this blog post, we will address four common challenges SMEs face during cloud migration and how our consulting team can help you overcome them.

1. Security Concerns

The move from physical servers to the cloud comes with security risks and the potential to expose your information to cyberattacks. Making use of professional and reliable cloud computing service providers will protect the integrity of your data in many ways, including some of the following safeguards:

  • Strong encryption strategies and access control
  • Ongoing security monitoring, updates and maintenance to ensure your cloud environment remains secure despite constantly emerging threats

2. Data Loss 

The fear of losing data is a major deterrent to SMEs migrating to cloud-based services, especially for large databases. NetEffects can help prevent data loss in several ways, including:

  • Secure data migration protocols, specifically designed to minimise the risk of data loss.
  • Extensive data backup and recovery solutions to ensure restoration of critical data if needed.
  • In collaboration with you, we will develop continuity plans to minimise downtime and ensure your business operations are unaffected during migration.

3. Dealing With the Costs

Every SME has already made considerable investments in their IT infrastructure, and cloud migration may be viewed as yet another expense that will challenge their already stretched budgets.

While there are costs associated with the move, dealing with a reliable, reputable cloud migration team like NetEffects is vital to ensuring a transparent cost analysis, not only to understand the cost of the initial move but also to see the benefits and cost-savings you will enjoy down the line.


4. Lack of In-House Expertise

While cloud computing is not a new concept, it is evolving rapidly. Keeping up to date with the latest methods and technologies can be a serious challenge for IT professionals. NetEffects can help with this in the following ways:

  • Our cloud migration specialists have extensive knowledge and experience to handle all aspects of your move to cloud-based services.
  • We provide comprehensive project management and technical expertise throughout the process.
  • We offer training to your internal IT staff, equipping them to manage your cloud environment effectively going forward.
