We all know the fable of the Tortoise and the Hare – ‘slow and steady wins the race’ is an often-used mantra, and for good reason. But how does it link with innovation in the fast-paced world of IT and database support? As it turns out, very easily.
Late last year Linkedin released a series of videos investigating marketing concepts, one of which encouraged firms to make small, consistent changes within their marketing strategy rather than shooting for revolutionary, original concepts.
The logic went that customers rarely respond well to products that seem alien to them; instead, innovative upgrades of products that customers recognised and were used to, or new products that evoked old ideas, worked the best. The customer had to be taken on a journey of subtle changes, not thrown in at the deep end.
You might be starting to cotton on to how this links to IT support. When DSP are asked to perform a service that ideally requires a move to the Cloud, especially by a company whose assets are predominantly or entirely on-prem, our advice is often met with hesitation. Nervous breathing. A short pause, followed by a polite suggestion that their company may be better suited to other options.
That’s why DSP have developed our Oracle Bitesize plan – to break down the whole operation into manageable chunks.
Star with a 1-day onsite workshop for you and your organisation. You will gain:
To provide your business with Proof of Value, we will implement a ‘bitesize’ instance of Oracle Cloud for your organisation.
Having deployed your bitesize instance of Oracle Cloud, we will work with you to ensure that you feel confident in your move to Cloud and prepared for your organisation’s next steps.
It’s as simple as that! There’s no jumping in at the deep end and our specialists will walk you step-by-step along the journey to Oracle Cloud. The tortoise would be proud.
Moving to the Cloud may SEEM like a huge undertaking, but here’s the thing – even if migrating to a Cloud platform is a necessary move for you, there’s every opportunity to start small. A ‘subtle migration’ may sound like something of an oxymoron but it’s the way forward for on-prem clients and database service providers alike.
Even in the constantly evolving world of technology, in this instance, slow and steady consistently wins the race. Head to our website to read more about our Oracle Cloud Bitesize plan or contact us at www.dsp.co.uk/contact-us.
