Scott Schulze, CEO of Fusion Technology Solutions, shares his views on why the cloud is one of the predominant technologies to be leveraged by every firm, and how Fusion Technology Solutions is assisting SMEs and large businesses to enhance productivity and efficiency through their cloud solutions.
What, according to you, are the reasons that prevent various firms from adopting cloud technology, and how does Fusion Technology Solutions tackle such challenges?
The reasons are multifold, ranging from inadequate knowledge about cloud technology to business executives struggling with how they can effectively leverage the cloud platforms as opposed to on-premises data storage systems. Additionally, organizations also fear data theft from the cloud and prefer to secure their private and sensitive data using cyber as well as device security. Our team precisely understands all these apprehensions that businesses and their workforce face and strategically deploys cloud solutions solely based on the unique requirements and challenges of clients. With our cloud solutions, we assist and guide the customers to accelerate their business growth while also providing them knowledge about the cloud platforms and related cybersecurity solutions.
You mentioned that cybersecurity remains a big concern for every enterprise when it comes to moving their business to the cloud. Could you elaborate on the same?
Today, artificial intelligence (AI) is being used in a myriad of industry verticals to not only secure the data from outside or inside attackers, but also detect and prevent such breaches in the future. Similarly, organizations also leverage business intelligence (BI) to analyze their business data and make predictions about the company’s future. Likewise, the cloud technology is also developing in a few different ways with cybersecurity being the most important and interesting aspect of this growth.

3It is true that different business leaders face challenges that are specific to their organizations, and most of the CIOs and other executives often face hurdles that are related to data security, internet of things (IoT), and cloud strategy. In addition to these obstacles, our team also identifies disruptions related to cloudservice deployment models, data management ownership and the associated cost, and creates multiple cloud strategies to avoid vendor lock-in. Our team recognizes all these issues by leveraging the experience and knowledge of what other businesses are doing and have done successfully. Subsequently, our entire team engages with the clients and analyzes their business strategy and future goals. Thereafter, we combine all this information to design a framework that we can work on, to produce the desired results for them. We also allow them to opt for a private, public or hybrid cloud solution based on their business requirements.
Kindly elaborate on a customer success story or a case study where the cloud-based offerings of Fusion Technology Solutions helped the client grow their business.
We assisted an event rentals company in growing their business from a local northern California venture with 50 employees in 2014 to a regional leader in their field, operating across the southwestern US with 900 employees by late 2018. Working in partnership with their CIO, we assisted the company through every stage of growth, by providing all the necessary IT hardware infrastructure, as well as implementing cloud solutions for all accounting, email and office applications. Advanced security measures were added, to ensure a sophisticated and optimized BDR solution. This approach enabled the client to securely provide their distributed workforce with accessibility to IT services from anywhere, while contributing to exponential growth.
What, according to you, is the value proposition of Fusion Technology Solutions that sets you apart from other cloud solution providers in the market?
I think, for us, it comes down to the three core Ps—people, process, and products. With these three Ps, we ensure building and maintaining a strong and well-established partnership with our clients. Our company also has a dedicated service delivery team that aligns the deliverables with the clients’ interests. These are the real differentiators, in my view, that set our company apart from other cloud solution providers.
Kindly elaborate on your plans for the future.
We are continuously developing the organization and the best-of-breed cloud solutions with customers as the prime focus. Our team is specifically working to enhance our cloud-based cybersecurity solutions by employing predictive analytics and AI.
