Why Host Your Vontas Infrastructure in the Vontas Cloud?

Today’s transit agencies are challenged to effectively manage risk, secure data with effective cybersecurity policies and protocols, demonstrate compliance and control the costs associated with operating and maintaining an on-premises infrastructure. It’s a heavy lift given that they’re struggling to attract and retain the talent needed to solve modern transit problems—like reducing ride and wait times and providing real-time information— that can drive an exceptional passenger experience.

But it’s difficult to quickly manage service disruptions in real-time. With siloed and inaccurate data, the result is a frustrating experience for employees—who typically lack the information that can help passengers—and passengers who are often the last to know about last-minute route and schedule changes.

Adopting a cloud infrastructure is an opportunity to not only improve the rider experience but also to help your agency weather economic uncertainty and a lack of resources and expertise. The cloud can help foster resilience, innovation, growth, and scalability. As one expert said: “You can’t innovate in a digital world without the cloud.”¹

Plus, as your organization embraces the cloud, you can eliminate the technical debt associated with maintaining and operating traditional data centers and legacy on-premises infrastructure.
