Merging IT Infrastructures? Consider Cloud Data Management

Mergers and acquisitions typically involve a substantial amount of due diligence by the buyer and seller. It’s important that your customers and stakeholders, both internal and external, don’t experience any interruption in their business processes.

When it comes to mergers, companies often face a significant risk of decreased productivity and financial loss during the infrastructure transition, especially if field representatives and remote employees are unable to access key data, or if that data is lost or falls into the wrong hands.

With the right strategy and tools in place, you can minimize your risk, while making the transition as efficient as possible.

A Quick and Cost-Effective Business Integration Solution

Business integration should not be difficult. You don’t have to rely on FTP servers that weren’t designed for the high volume of data required to run the modern enterprise. 

Developing a solution from scratch is not a feasible option either. Homegrown solutions require an investment of hundreds of man hours and hundreds of thousands of dollars. These solutions are often fraught with reliability issues.

Enterprises should consider a managed file transfer (MFT) solution when thinking about handling their business integration requirements, especially in cases of mergers and acquisitions. Ideal MFT solutions can provide:

  • Visibility and governance over your data and infrastructure
  • Secure data transfers to protect sensitive data and help your organization meet or exceed regulatory compliance mandates
  • Reporting methods to track and manage data
  • Rapid deployment to meet deadlines

MFT in the Cloud Resources

“While Globalscape’s EFT Cloud Services addressees a growing requirement for secure electronic file transfer, the solution also address the essential need for organizations to more easily demonstrate regulatory compliance. And because many organizations are not ready to go all-in when it comes to putting critical data in the cloud, the solution offers a hybrid or virtual option.”
