Cloud Print Revolution

The cloud is revolutionising how we do business. Yet print often falls outside of a company’s cloud first strategy.

Managing printers can be a pain, but it doesn’t have to be

Printing is a headache for IT… whether it’s helping new users get connected to a printer on their first day, updating print drivers across the organisation, or patching security holes on Windows servers – there’s always something to do.

The problem lies in outdated print infrastructure that’s reliant on on-premise print servers and a misconception that a multi-vendor print fleet serving multiple users across a number of locations, is too complex to migrate to the cloud, and that doing so would negatively impact employees’ ability to print.

Organizations of all sizes can benefit from the agility and innovation of cloud printing technology. Whether you have a handful of printers or tens of thousands of devices, taking print to the cloud and eliminating print servers has never been easier.

Take print to the cloud and modernise your IT

For organizations that have already moved basic IT applications and infrastructure to the cloud, the next natural step is to include print in their Software as a Service (SaaS) portfolio. Cloud printing technology streamlines the print infrastructure, lessens the burden on IT, removes reliance on print servers, enables central management and improves the end-user experience.

It’s really easy to migrate an existing on-premise print environment to a cloud-based service, enabling the entire printing infrastructure to be deployed and controlled from a single web-based interface. A cloud-based print infrastructure provides hassle free printing, with immediate end-user fulfilment/device provisioning and it’s flexible and future-proof, enabling users to print from desktops and mobiles to a secure cloud print platform.

All the tools you need to

Adapt to cloud

Migrating print to a cloud-based as-a-service platform makes life easier for IT. IT leads can simply define their desired services, availability and infrastructure, and then safely hand over the effort of delivering everything to their platform provider.

Modernizing legacy managed print environments to leverage the full value of a scalable, flexible cloud service is a natural evolution for many IT teams.  The managed services model where industry specialists take care of the ongoing maintenance of printing hardware, and ensure just in time delivery of consumables is a mature one.  Now, the increasing availability of cloud print services means that this approach can be extended to delivering the backbone of print infrastructure – enter cloud managed print services.

Advice for IT leaders
IT leads considering how best to implement cloud printing should be looking to achieve a state where on-premise print servers are redundant, new printers can be deployed remotely through a single pane of glass, and provisioning end-users with the latest drivers and policies etc. is fully automated. Plus, IT is no longer responsible for updating/upgrading servers each time a security patch is released, any necessary updates or changes are automatically applied, ensuring ongoing compliance and peace of mind.
End-users Impact
Taking print to the cloud shouldn’t negatively impact end-users. A cloud print platform should enable users to continue as if nothing had changed and send documents to print in the same way they always have, with a consistent experience across all their devices, (laptop, mobile, tablet) and across all locations. 
Cloud as a source of cost control
Cloud printing technology also provides far greater cost control.  Rather than building their own homegrown solution, IT can tightly define the services required to meet their organization’s business needs and purchase these as a flexible subscription-based model. There’s no requirement for initial upfront investment, delivering immediate cost savings, and a SaaS-based solution also provides greater future flexibility, enabling organizations to flex up or scale down as their needs evolve.
