A Q&A with Nishan:

1. What do you hope to bring to 365 Technologies?

To work with our clients of all sizes on their Cloud-migration journey by providing my expertise knowledge of and experience with Microsoft Cloud solutions, including Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business and Microsoft Teams.

2. When people ask you – “What’s the Cloud?” – what do you tell them?

This can mean many things based on who is asking and their purpose. In general, it’s a large collection of servers running in a massive data centre with ability to pool resources on-demand for computing needs. For a small business, the Cloud offers opportunities to move their workloads from on-premise servers to hosted solutions.

3. What’s one piece of advice you’d give a business that wants to move to the Cloud?

Take small steps first. Start with a proof of concept or pilot project to get comfortable with what it means to be “in the Cloud.”

4. What are the advantages to a business moving to the Cloud?

The primary advantages are data accessibility, improved collaboration, data security and recovery.
