    The use of Cloud Services is becoming increasingly important in the business world. When it comes to the point that companies strive to move their products and services into the Cloud, there will be significant benefits for them:

    • Long-term cost savings
    • High levels of security

    The Cloud Migration process

    STRATEGY

    First of all, the strategy for the migration needs to be defined. Further on, the main focus is on the selection of the applications to be migrated. These will be ranked according to their requirements. Applications with high load times and global reach, such as Online Shops, are on the top of the list. The benefits are immediately visible and can be applied profitably:

    • Horizontal scaling will improve performance
    • A managed service will save you costs in terms of development & IT Operations to support your service 24/7

    TRANSFORMATION

    When transforming and migrating applications into the Cloud, one main question needs to be clarified: whether the already existing applications should be modernized or replaced by Cloud Native Apps.

    When analyzing the applications, the basis of decision making should be:

    • Can future innovations be incorporated and implemented faster and more efficiently by improving or replacing existing applications?
    • For product extensions – it is important to implement them using automated processes to reduce costs and downtime in the future.

    With effective Cloud Management, the whole transformation process can be adapted and supported according to a company’s strategy. It should be ensured that automated processes and optimizations are carried out continuously to achieve effective cost control.

    SUPPORT

    Choosing to work with a Managed Service Provider is particularly interesting for small and medium-sized companies. Growth and experience will be brought into those businesses and increase their technological knowledge base. Routine tasks which are repetitive and time-consuming can be outsourced and companies can focus on building and aligning their services.

    Cloud Migration with Wollzelle

    Thanks to many years of international experience with Cloud Migrations, Wollzelle is able to successfully implement a cloud transformation strategy for its clients.

    Our experience ranges from the implementation of efficient digital transformation processes and leads to migration of complex processes in the areas of administration and human resource management.

    So, if you are not already thinking about transforming to the Cloud, it would be good to start doing this right now. It is obvious that the Cloud will be the future for your business and the sooner you plan your migration, the better for your business and competitiveness. In terms of security, a transformation is very much recommendable.

    Especially, with new laws – the European Data Protection Law (GDPR) – companies are forced to make their services as secure as possible and the Cloud could help you with this. So also watch out for our next Blogpost where you will get some insights about how we are getting real to comply with the European Data Protection Law (GDPR / DSVGO), which comes into effect in May 2018.

  2. Digital Transformation for your Business

    Edit
    Digitalization is the future Photo by Tim Gouw on Unsplash

    Digitalization is an important step into the future for every company. Therefore, companies should no longer wait to develop a concrete digitalization strategy – industry 4.0 is already on the rise. From our experience, it is necessary to clearly plan the digitalization process, preferably with a partner to have not only an inside view on the topic but also an expert view. The challenge of transforming already settled processes and the input of internal personnel can be summarized homogeneously.

    What to achieve?

    The main goal is to simplify and support processes with the help of digitalization measures, thereby relieving the burden on company departments and redefining work processes. This is the chance to optimize processes purposefully and improve quality assurance.

    With our solutions for digitalization, especially in the field of personnel development for training and monitoring via mobile eLearning apps, we are already in the midst of working with our customers towards their digital transformation and would like to share our experiences with you.

    What mobile applications can do for you?

    By using mobile applications, companies can simplify work processes for their employees and build up know-how. Mobile learning will become more and more important in the future as, above all, your employees’ ideas about learning will change. Global teams will work together even closer and, with a new level of flexibility, employees will be able to determine when to repeat or reassemble parts of their training – which in turn greatly supports their motivation.

    Effective & efficient on the go

    Mobile eLearning apps enable your employees to plan their working hours effectively – training is available from any location and therefore, it is accessible at all times. Trainings – especially if they are offered for several different locations – can be attended at any time by all employees worldwide. The eLearning apps also provide your employees with the ability to review their own statistics and give them the opportunity to keep track of their learning curve. Through such mobile learning opportunities, a solution can be offered which is easily accessible for the employees and fast and effectively feasible.

    How does the optimization look like?

    The digitalization of work processes has the advantage that data can be aggregated in one central location, thereby efficiency can be increased. It is i.e. possible to link the mobile applications with your merchandise management system and through this, the data is always up to date. Similar applications for the evaluation and analysis of data are particularly interesting for the areas of Sales & Marketing, as statistics can be created quick and easy and an overview of i.e. sales per country can be displayed.

    How can we support you?

    In addition to our projects in the field of digitalization and optimization of work processes, we count of many years of experience in data management. Our digital asset management platform (Fluxiom: SaaS product) makes it possible, amongst other things, to easily and securely share and save large files. The data is stored securely in the cloud and can be accessed from anywhere in the world.

    What’s next?

    There are other topics that revolve around digitalization and your company’s future, such as cloud computing. By moving processes to the cloud, they can be optimized even better and data security can be increased. In the upcoming years, cloud computing will become more and more important for your company. New processes can be introduced quickly, which in turn can make the processes already optimized by digitalization measures even better.

    So, watch out for the next post on Cloud Computing and some insights about how we are getting real to comply with the new EU Data Protection Law (GDPR), which comes into effect in May 2018.

  6. Infographic on the new EU VAT rules

    Edit

    New VAT regulations came into effect on 1 January 2015. If you sell digital goods or services (Saas) within the European Union, it is essential that you review your invoices for compliance. As so often, the rules are confusing, and failure to conform could have dire consequences.

    There is so much contradictory information out there, especially for intra-European relationships, that I decided to put together a little flowchart, to facilitate our invoicing. Our friends saw it, liked it, and asked for it, so there it is, for your personal enjoyment. We hope it helps you get back to actual productive work as soon as possible!

    Links

    These new VAT regulations are a vast and complex issue. While nothing could replace the personal advice of your accountant, we have compiled a list of links, ranging from official texts to pithy commentary. May they prove as useful to you in your research as they were to us! We wish you the best of luck in this endeavour!
