Edge Technology Group Announces Release of Newsletter Featuring Gartner Research Findings Focused on Cloud Services


Newsletter provides an overview of several factors to consider as
firms analyze their overall cloud strategy

Technology Group, a leading Managed Service Provider to the financial
sector, today announced the release of a newsletter that explores
several key factors to aid investment firms in developing an informed
cloud migration strategy. The newsletter also provides key findings from
the Gartner research report, "Build the Right Justification for Moving
to the Cloud" (Kevin Ji; Refreshed 27 July 2018, Published 15 May 2017).
The newsletter is designed to aid firms in mapping a successful cloud
migration for their particular use cases.

As cloud computing continues to evolve, the views on the value of public
versus private cloud are also developing. In many business situations,
the cloud is not a "one-size-fits-all" decision. Both the private and
public cloud models have unique advantages and disadvantages that should
be thoroughly analyzed to determine the optimal cloud strategy.

Alternative investment groups, such as hedge funds and private equity
firms, have particularly high standards when it comes to performance,
security and support. "As an advisory, Edge maintains a
technology-agnostic position. This allows us to always remain focused on
optimizing our clients' technology strategy to serve their underlying
business goals and specific use cases," stated Jim Nekos, CEO Edge
Technology Group. "Financial firms moving to cloud computing platforms –
whether public or private – should always demand high efficiencies and
network performance," continued Nekos.

Data sovereignty is another area covered in the newsletter. Data
protection and control of data are key concerns of regulators and
investors. "Firms should insist that their cloud provider – public,
private or hybrid – offers complete visibility into where their data is
actually located for a variety of reasons, from investor and regulatory
requirements to performance and latency concerns," said John Pecoraro,
COO Edge Technology Group.

a complimentary copy of the newsletter to explore how to build the right
justification for moving to the cloud.
