They moved to G Suite a year back and IT wants to move all on- prem storage to the cloud, including documents and file storage. But, the finance and legal departments are holding out. They are continuing to use office365 and on-prem legacy file server/storage solutions because of privacy (loss of confidentiality) concerns.
IT wants to give finance and legal teams the peace of mind that their data will be protected in the cloud, specifically, in Google’s G Suite.
This is where GC helps, by letting the finance and legal departments transfer all on-prem documents and files (also migrate from Office 365) into Google Drive in pre-encrypted form. This way, they get to control the encryption of their sensitive data and ensure that Google does not have visibility into it.
Finance guys meet their compliance requirements.
This benefits IT as it eliminates the need to support pockets of users on legacy systems and services and move wholly to their new cloud platform of choice, i.e., G Suite/GCP.
Reduction in cost-overhead is tremendous as they are able completely eliminate reliance on more expensive legacy solutions.
