We’ve seen them mentioned in the IT news headlines: data lakes. The new hope of IT organisations to enable their business units with actual content and valuable insights, rather than just offering servers and empty storage. Almost all companies of size and renown have embarked on this new journey and are  building these lakes to sail upon them. Or maybe  not?

Last Friday, the AWS Pop-Up Loft Munich 2017 came to an end, with a nice little closing party exactly where we spent the last month learning, exchanging and building. In Norcloud’s German team, we see a lot of value in the loft to AWS partners and customers alike and it was a logical step for us to sponsor and support this initiative. This is a privilege only few companies have, and we wanted to share our experiences, allowing our team members speak for themselves.

In this blog post, I will be picking up on what my colleague Sandip discussed in his latest blog post, 'Innovating by Making a Difference'. Based on that, I wanted to take the opportunity to talk about how Nordcloud Germany have managed to stay on top of the industry for the last year or two. It's been about focussing on the right things at the right time. For example, we haven't worked in the Private Cloud space, and we haven't been involved in the SaaS world of productivity, collaboration or CRM. We have stayed focussed purely on leading Public Cloud platforms; AWS, Azure & Google to deliver full-stack consultancy and services.

As we already discussed in our previous blog post, the GDPR is a regulation that is not bound to any country in the European Union specifically, nor is it meant for any particular technology or type of business. It applies to all countries within the EU as well as to all companies providing services to and interacting with EU citizens and businesses.

With the IT infrastructure, platform and services industry going through a major shift in gears a lot of talented folks are needed to make this shift happen. You can’t transform, without a helping hand here and there. Just as only few companies are able to manage and operate their AWS environments without investing lots of money. That’s where we come into the play. Our job is to enable companies all over Europe to use AWS at absolute maximum value.

As of May 2018 a new data regulation law will be put into place by the European Union. Given the large scale impact of this new regulation, the EU administration have released the requirements already, to give businesses, public agencies and citizens time to adapt already today and some time before it becomes actually legally binding.

There are but a few reasons for staying with on-premises hosting. We at Nordcloud are naturally promoting the public cloud. The public cloud providers define new IT standards and innovate at a speed and quality that is unmatched. The public cloud is the answer to most of the IT challenges we all grew so painfully used to during the last 10 years. However, since we are not just dealing with digital-native companies in the media, gaming and Web industry but also very traditional and several hundred years old enterprises, we know very well that the on-premise world exists for a reason. And no matter how much we would love to get all of our customers workloads to where they would be best hosted, we understand that sometimes the answer has to be: no. In this blog post, we want to discuss some use cases that we have seen over and over and that were stopping companies from moving their workloads to the cloud.
