"The world is changed. I feel it in the water. I feel it in the earth. I smell it in the air"
This is the opening quotation from one of my favorite movies – J.R.R Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings. It is also an apt description of what is taking place in Enterprise IT as we have passed a tipping point in cloud adoption in the Enterprise. A recent survey* of 509 IT managers were asked to estimate what percent of their applications, data and/or infrastructure were cloud based. While we all know that workloads are going to the cloud, the pace and impact of this change is larger and broader than many imagined.
That being said, we realize our customers want choice. For some customers, they want or have corporate mandates that demand running the software on-premise, but for more and more of our customers the ability to have their Seal Contracts Discovery and Analytics platform run in a secure and protected cloud environment is the desired deployment model for them. With this in mind, a couple years ago Seal introduced the Seal Cloud Services (SCS) offering. SCS is a fully managed offering of the Seal platform, providing complete managed physical infrastructure and Seal platform and application level services.
Customers desire Cloud Services for a couple broad reasons:
Lastly, Seal Cloud Services is built on top of the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) which allows Seal to inherit many of the great platform security features built in – like 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES-256), 99.999999999% data durability, intrusion detection and all of the various ISO and SOC certifications you would expect from a tier one provider.
It’s no surprise that we at Seal are seeing tremendous growth in our overall business and also in the decision of our customers to choose Seal Cloud Services as their deployment model. If you are interested in learning more I would love to talk with you!
