With a wealth of cloud-based and configurable software packages available, companies are wisely making the choice to base their application portfolios on these functional and industry-specific solutions. By their nature, these software products provide exceptional point solutions but alone do not solve the larger enterprise-wide business needs. To fully realize the value of these packaged products, they must be seamlessly implemented to enable cross-system workflow, data sharing, transaction management and end-user interface design. 5 Points' implementation and integration services are designed to maximize the potential of each point solution within the context of a company's entire application portfolio.
Cloud Computing is a promising and quickly evolving assortment of technologies and services. While the Cloud has the potential to improve business agility and responsiveness, reduce risk and lower costs, the pace of change and confusing set of new offerings in this area has made it difficult to achieve these benefits. In far too many instances, we see companies whose entry into the cloud have been fraught with problems or who have alternatively delayed their entry to the cloud altogether... in either case, these companies are missing out on the benefits that a well-managed migration could provide.
5 Points has the experience to help you navigate the cloud landscape offering a number of services appropriate to your situation. Whether you are just considering a step into the Cloud or you are there, but not realizing the benefits expected, we can help.
