How Cloud Can Benefit Your Organisation
To meet the needs of today’s customers, enterprises must prioritise a digital-first, omnichannel customer experience. As we move into a new era of customer conversations, cloud solutions provide the flexibility and innovation that legacy, on-premise systems cannot. With a focus on increasing productivity – and enhancing the customer experience – business leaders should invest in technology that prioritises agility, speed and scale.
Enhanced Speed to Market
Cloud technology allows businesses to rapidly deploy and scale their applications without having to worry about the infrastructure. This allows teams to focus on developing and improving their product, ultimately reducing time to market.
Lower Total Cost of Ownership
No need for huge capital outlay. The cloud allows enterprises to successfully shift some, or all, IT expenses from CapEx to OpEx. Pay only for what you use, when you use it, and capitalise on the new economics of cloud.
Speed of Innovation
The cloud helps organisations support an increased pace of product development and helps you create new services, capabilities, hybrid applications and exploit new business opportunities.
With cloud, resources are available when you need them. You can respond immediately to dynamic spikes in demand, such as seasonal peaks, without increased capital expense, by allocating cloud resources as needed and releasing them when demand subsides.
Improved Security and Compliance
Cloud providers have vast resources and expertise to invest in security and compliance measures, which can be challenging for many businesses to replicate on-premises. Cloud providers also offer centralised security management, automated compliance reporting, and continuous monitoring.
Cloud helps you retain control of your applications and data while offloading routine infrastructure management to your cloud provider and gain the freedom to focus on IT initiatives that bring real value to your organisation.
”“Agility requires true cloud technologies, which meet demands without hefty hardware investments, provide real-time provisioning to meet changing internal needs, increase speed to production and scale to meet the complex needs of a business’ centralised customer communications strategies.”Jim LundyCEO and Lead Analyst at Aragon Research
