For those who still have a server in the office, you have a choice of either replacing the it or moving to the cloud. With replacing the server, you are probably looking at it costing quite a bit to refresh and get modernised. On the other hand, the Cloud is cheaper, but this shouldn’t be the main reason for moving.
