As you may be aware, we decide to compile a 5-part article regarding the migration of on-premises and legacy systems to the cloud. We already highlight the advantages of cloud-based systems (security, simple sharing, IT infrastructure rationalization, etc.), and checked a variety of problems associated with maintaining on-premises ECM system.
Keeping your ECM System updated its crucial to stay competitive and increase your business agility. In some cases, the best way to guarantee this maintenance is by migrating from your legacy system to a new modern, and cloud-based platform. These is one reason, but there are a few more that we need to highlight. So, in this third part, we’ll check 3 major reasons to migrate from a Legacy ECM System to the Cloud.
Reason Nº 1 – User Friendly
In a daily basis, people are increasingly get used to simple, intuitive, and web-based tools and applications (usually related with everyday tasks: sharing files and photos, browsing social media, and even cloud based storing platforms like google drive, and so on). So, in a work environment, if you insist to get stick to a complex legacy ECM System, with an outdated UI interface, productivity could be affected. In fact, a lot of companies are already looking for cloud-based alternatives, that give a more modern UI (User Interface) and UX (User Experience).
Reason Nº 2 – Investment
Maintaining a legacy on-premises system can be costly (people, hardware, user licenses, etc.). Given this, many companies find in cloud-based systems a way to simplify their cost structure. Why?! Well, because cloud-based platforms are flexible and scalable to the company present needs. You only pay for what you need in a specific moment, and you don’t need to worry about any kind of “hardware logistics” if your business grows unexpectedly.
Reason Nº 3 – Digital transformation
ECM Systems that only store content are tools from the past! You need a platform that can communicate with other tools (a lot of them already cloud-based). We are talking about scanning and optical character recognition tools, AI-driven tagging and classification, and much more. If you want to keep up with the competition, and follow the constant changing business environment, cloud-based platforms allow you to easily extend your ECM System with these functionalities.
