Drivers to the Cloud

As O.D.T. Engineering expanded its operations and clientele, they realised that their existing on-premises infrastructure was becoming a bottleneck for growth. Managing the hardware, software updates, and data backups consumed valuable resources and time. They also faced challenges in ensuring seamless access to their line of business application, Syspro, for their employees working remotely. O.D.T. Engineering’s leadership understood that migrating to the cloud was the next logical step in their digital transformation journey. After careful evaluation of various cloud service providers, O.D.T. Engineering chose Amazon Web Services (AWS) as their preferred cloud platform. AWS’s robust and secure infrastructure, global reach, and extensive array of services perfectly aligned with their needs.

According to Harmony Prizeman, O.D.T.’s bookkeeper: “We were at a point where we had to upgrade to the latest version of Syspro. Additionally, our physical servers were close to their end of life. Taking both of these things into consideration, O.D.T. went down the path of cloud-based computing as an option rather than continuing with legacy physical servers.”

Why Amazon Web Services (AWS)

AWS’s compliance with industry standards and certifications assured O.D.T. Engineering that their sensitive data would remain secure. AWS is the preferred choice for SMBs due to its unmatched scalability, reliability, and extensive global infrastructure. With a vast array of services and pay-as-you-go pricing, AWS offers cost-effective solutions tailored to SMBs’ needs.
