More and more organisations are moving to the cloud!
The Commonwealth Bank just announced that they are moving their human resources and payroll to the cloud.
The company announced two years ago that it would replace its existing on-premises Oracle PeopleSoft platform with a cloud-based human resources solution.
Last week it sent its Australian operations live on the cloud-based platform, which also integrates with its local solutions.
The Commonwealth Bank of Australia’s general manager of group people services, Andrew Culleton, said the new cloud-based system will be easier to use and more adaptable to the ever-changing needs of managers and employees.
“We are transforming how our core systems work; improving and then leveraging the data integration between our other HR solutions, to make HR services simple, easy and flexible for our people,” he said in a statement to iTnews.
“This means our people get the outcome they need faster so they have more time to meet the needs of our customers.”
This is the great thing about integrating managed cloud services into your organisations current solutions. Seamless migration of traditional enterprise applications to the cloud not only reduces operational costs, but increases efficiency through the real-time monitoring of your environment, and frees you up to focus on what your organisation does best.
What are the benefits of cloud managed service providers?
- Cost Savings
Outsourcing your cloud managed services allows you to significantly reduce your TCO (Total Cost of Ownership), as well as your ongoing costs i.e. hardware, rent, power, maintenance and staff. Staffing a full-time IT department alone is costly and often unnecessary for most businesses. Outsourcing to a managed IT service provider like eStorm can save you thousands of dollars each and every year.
- Future Proof & Growth Proof
One of the greatest advantages of managed cloud services is the flexibility they provide. Cloud infrastructure is designed to scale with your business, as well as only requiring you to pay for what you really need.
Cloud based infrastructure and services also allows for increased efficiency as it allows you to work from anywhere at anytime.
