Cloud Computing and Compliance for Financial Services in San Antonio
As a financial services company in San Antonio, maintaining FINRA and SEC compliance is crucial. This investment advisory firm wanted a way to ensure compliance while reducing downtime and increasing protection over client data. They reached out for help as soon as they realized how much they were spending on traditional IT maintenance and how it hindered their business.
Maintaining Compliance Amidst Evolving Technology Needs
This company was experiencing downtime due to hardware and software troubleshooting. Not only was this downtime costing the business time, but money. After experiencing increasing break downs and interruptions, they reached out for an IT solution that could cut costs and deliver better IT support tailored to their business needs.
"The cost was actually very beneficial because we had taken a look at what we had spent in troubleshooting over the last 12 months. And lo and behold, it actually was more cost beneficial to transition to the cloud… Not only did we have access to that environment for multiple users, any one of our users can call up the IT department and get assistance with troubleshooting at no cost."

SOLUTION AND RESULTS
Cloud Migration Increasing Business Speed, Security, and Flexibility
Once fully transitioned to a cloud environment, this company experienced significantly less downtime and increased speed creating a noticeable difference in business operations. The cloud removed the need to replace hardware or parts, introduced remote working capability, and provided a way to store client data that did not rely on physical systems.
"You know the greatest thing I really love about the cloud it is very quick. When you are in the cloud, you're actually operating at a much faster pace than before because you're on their server… Now I can be in Dallas, or in Tampa, and the quickness of the cloud is very, very reliable. I mean there is no latency — without question. The cloud has definitely allowed me greater productivity. And not just for me, but for my staff. They can work from home if they like and do the same amount of work they would have here in the office."
