As more businesses move toward the cloud, there is an ever-growing marketplace for cloud-based services. Companies want products that work together and integrate seamlessly with their existing applications—which is where cloud brokers come into play.

In a nutshell, cloud brokers work with cloud service providers to give clients a customized solution to fit their exact needs.

Benefits of a Cloud Broker

So why choose a cloud broker rather than shopping around for cloud providers yourself? Simply put, making the transition to a multi-cloud strategy can be challenging. Many businesses struggle to manage their data resources, negotiate their cloud bundles, and implement their new solutions in the most efficient way. This has prompted many companies to turn to a cloud service broker to address these challenges.

Cloud brokers can help:

  • Negotiate Deals: Cloud brokers have close relationships with providers and can make sure you get the best rate possible. Additionally, cloud brokers have no incentive to push services you don’t need, so you can trust them to have your best interest in mind.
  • Customize Your Plan: A broker will work directly with you to customize your cloud service bundle. A good cloud broker knows the industry better than anyone in the field. They keep up with the latest and greatest cloud solutions, and can therefore identify the best options for your needs.
  • Streamline Migration: When you decide to migrate cloud, the process needs to be well planned to prevent any long-term disruptions or security issues. Cloud brokers offer support at this stage to streamline migration and ensure continuity during deployment.
  • Provide Support: Cloud brokers are experts when it comes to cloud services and technology, helping to provide support along the way. Plus, they can act as a single point of contact across all cloud vendors, which means troubleshooting and resolving issues is a seamless process.

Transitioning to cloud-based services can seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. When working with a cloud broker, you can make the switch without becoming an expert in the field. It’s the best way to find and implement an affordable and customizable cloud solution that works toward your goals.
