You join us from the Nordcloud courtroom - where the gavel falls on some serious and all-too-common charges of legacy IT issues.

That got your attention.

(Welcome to the August edition of Cloud Core, by the way 👋)

You join us this month from the Nordcloud courtroom - where the gavel falls on some serious and all-too-common charges of legacy IT issues

Picture the scene - someone’s been left with blood on their hands by the failure to grasp the transformative power of the cloud.

In this trial, we dissect the charges of neglect, security flaws and innovation stagnation. And our experts take the stand to cross-examine and show the path to redemption.

Do some of these charges sound familiar? Are you guilty of these offences too?

Don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone. 

Just go ahead and read the article. It was written by our super Solutions Manager Dan, and he’s given some solid advice on what you should do at the end.

Let’s make this newsletter even more dramatic.

Criminal charges not enough? Here’s another dramatic analogy to break down your cloud challenges:

Cloud flat-lining

Your cloud adoption is flat-lining… How should you resuscitate it?

😕 Do you feel like your cloud adoption is choking?

😳 Your monthly costs are critical.

🥵 Maybe your speed to market needs CPR.

😱 Or your security setup is on life support.

Our SOS guide might just be the cure.

Our cloud advisory experts wrote this as a way of helping diagnose common symptoms and causes of cloud failure. It’s a really handy, concise read, check it out.

🌎 We’re going to save the world.

Are we being dramatic again? 

Possibly. But if you’re thinking about greener IT, or not quite sure how to tackle sustainability issues without sacrificing digital goals… Our new sustainability offering is here to help.

We’re super excited about it. Led by our green guru Tanja and her advisory eco-warriors, we’re working with organisations to help them understand their IT-related emissions - and how to reduce these with the public cloud. You can find out more about it here.

“After a 2,600 year wait, cloud computing is about to change your world for the better.”

That’s a pretty long wait

And that’s enough dramatic stuff for now.
