Start Using Soonr, Sooner

Posted in Technology on October 26 2021 at 08:08 PM

It’s all good and well deciding to use data centres to store your data, but the decisions don’t end there, next you need to choose what interface to use, what software package to get the best out of the situation. Services like Dropbox and Google Drive are gaining traction for personal use but it’s likely that you will need something a little more robust to cope with your organisation’s workload. At Sagari, we recommend the use of Soonr, it’s easy to pick up but has a breadth of functions to cater for everyone.

So why Soonr?

Soonr can offer a platform for collaboration, all within the confines of the cloud, the service is set up in such a way that comments and alterations are uploaded to the cloud, thus visible to all. Furthermore to enhance cooperation, Soonr sends real time alerts to your computer or phone to warn you of any amendments.

Are you worried about not being able to save if you’re disconnected from the internet?

Soonr offers you the ability to save whilst offline and then subsequently back up when you regain your connection, rather than some clients which fail to do so, meaning that you lose valuable data. This is impressive in its own right but all the more so when you consider that the service is available on over 800 different mobile devices, meaning that you can work on the go.

The service also has the ability to restore accidentally deleted data or previous versions of your data. Under the banner of versions, Soonr stores previous versions of your file and folders without costing you significantly more server space. Suppose you have folder X held within the service and it is 1Gb in size, Soonr monitors changes and archives previous versions of folder X but without multiplying the 1Gb folder size. Intelligently, it only picks out elements that have been changed making sure not to duplicate the entirety of the folder.

Not to mention the small things, which Soonr excels at:

A customisable interface that, allows you to alter the colour scheme and logos to match your branding guidelines and keep your staff focused.

A simple interface that is conducive to speedy searches on every compatible device.

The options available to data centre user can be greatly enhanced with the use of Soonr to monitor your data. Switching to the cloud isn’t as simple as pinpointing a secure, local, data centre, it requires thought about how your organisation will interface with that data. This must remain a key consideration when searching for a supplier.

Why Outsourcing Doesn’t Mean Putting Your Department at Risk

There seems to be an underlying belief that cloud computing is something apart from IT, something that will take jobs away from the industry, but this isn’t the case. It’s foolish to suggest that cloud adoption won’t have an effect on your department, all innovation requires change and readjustment, but it needn’t be the death knell to a career in technology. Cloud computing, and outsourcing your internal data and servers to a provider, is still an aspect fundamental to the industry.

Change

IT by its very nature has always been an ever changing aspect of business, after all it is somewhat dictated by constant growth and Moore’s law. IT is changing once more, take it in your stride and pick up a new skill, as your work begins to focus more on virtual computing and other elements you may have previously been unfamiliar with. Some of the tasks that previously made up your job description may well change, but they’ll be changing for every other department also. It is your job to ensure that you get on board with it first and be there to provide support from JatApp when the other employees require it. In some respects your role shouldn’t change all that much, you will still be needed to provide support but now the subject matter will be slightly different. Understand this as opportunity to add another string to your bow, that’s all it is at the end of the day.

Get Involved

Tight economic times have meant that most departments within companies are working to the edge of their means, if not beyond them. Offloading some of the responsibility to a cloud provider should, in turn, help your department drop back down to an average workload. Having fewer minor tasks to occupy your time with means that you should be able to get more involved with the strategic aspects of your organisation. Previously, your department may have been overlooked in the bigger picture planning, but with more time on your hands you can remind the board how reliant they are on IT. Tech plays a large part in the running of most business, don’t be afraid to impose yourself a little more. Use this new found time to create new programs or systems that can help streamline other areas of the business.

Manage

Many IT managers, whose organisations have already switched to the cloud, have been quoted saying that they’re already coming across far fewer headaches in their day to day work. Departments are even increasing budgets due to the savings of switching services to the cloud, largely down to cutting costs in infrastructure. In some respects your workload may decrease, but other duties will be added in likelihood. For example, it’s likely that your department would need to liaise with the service provider and head the project from your end. Your department is expected to be the most informed on the subject matter, and therefore the obvious choice when it comes to managing the switch.

Switching to the cloud has to be viewed as a tool to minimise the burden on your department’s shoulders, not as a tool for cutting down the workforce. It’s true that some change is associated with the switch, it is a positive jump, from more laborious maintenance and support tasks to strategic business.
