Question description

You are an IT specialist in a private medical practice. The practice includes three physical locations and 35 employees.

Until now, all IT technology and software was fully managed on-premises. However, the practice is adding another location and five new employees. Your organization will need additional storage capacity and computing power.

You have been asked to investigate available cloud computing options and recommend whether cloud computing should be used or whether the investment should be made to maintain 100% internal IT management.

Compare and contrast the use of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) to internal investment.

Include the following in your comparison:

  • The benefits of each
  • The risks or vulnerabilities of each
  • Additional information you would need to make a recommendation for which would most align with the organization's needs

Document your summary using one of the following options:

  • A 1- to 2-page Microsoft® Word chart or table
  • A 6- to 8-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation with detailed speaker notes
  • A Microsoft® Excel® spreadsheet formatted for printing
