IntelliNet Kicks Off Tech Week with Presentation at Flashstart’s Cloudy Mondays

IntelliNet’s Vice President of Sales, Karl Kleinert, presented at the April 24 Cloudy Mondays, hosted by the Cleveland-based business startup accelerator, Flashstarts.  During the interactive presentation, Mr. Kleinert presented some of the criteria that IntelliNet uses to determine when a cloud service makes financial and business sense for itself and its customers.

“The greater cloud market is forecasted by the IDC to be $500 billion by 2020,” explained Mr. Kleinert.  “But even with all that growth, not everything will be in the cloud.  The Midwest has been slower at adopting cloud technologies, but in our experience we are seeing that companies are shifting their buying decisions.”

Mr. Kleinert also shared IntelliNet’s journey to the cloud and how it came to its decision in 2013 to become a cloud service provider.  “You really have to evaluate all the business and technological pro’s and con’s that will impact the desired business outcomes.  No two cases or solutions are alike.”

“A cloud solution might be more expensive than in house, but the benefits of being in the cloud can far outweigh the costs for some businesses. For example, an online business that is reliant on web-based transactions will consider uptime an extremely important factor; therefore, they will likely be willing to pay more for a cloud-based solution that can guarantee a certain level of uptime. Other businesses not as dependent on uptime may be more suited to an in house set up.”
