Sporting Goods Manufacturer Move Their Applications to the Cloud

With the fast pace of doing business, it can be difficult to keep up with the latest technology. But old technology means data security risks and downtime. This used to keep the general manager of a small sporting goods manufacturer up at night. The company’s accounting software was running on Windows Server 2003, which was beyond its support date. This meant no more security updates, and a lack of PCI compliance could mean that Visa or MasterCard would no longer do business with the company.

Setting an aggressive goal for improvement

But the pressure of daily business and the capital expense (CapEx) of a new server was keeping the manager from updating the company’s existing technology. The company’s IT department recommended moving the app to the cloud, and suggested meeting with their IT partner to discuss how to move forward. With the help of their IT partner, the company moved its accounting application to the cloud. There was no impact to the company operations – it all worked seamlessly, with no downtime.

With the cloud, the accounting application is compliant, and always running on the latest technology. Updates are done automatically. And the company’s manager has peace of mind that the data is always backed up, protected, and can scale to meet the needs of their growing business. They also like that they avoided the capital cost of a new server.
The company gets all the resources it needs and pays only for what the company uses. Now the management team is planning to move other applications to the cloud. Best of all, with their core business applications always ready and operational in the cloud, they can focus on running business.
