Over the last few years has IT industry witnessed, cloud technology taking center stage. Cloud has been changing the way enterprises do business and creating value by simplifying IT and lowering costs. Cloud what was once seen as a way to reduce capital and operating expenses, is now seen as a way to achieve business agility and speed to market. In this age of fast changing markets and technologies, the readiness of an enterprise to adapt to rapidly changing tech landscape will eventually determine the rise or fall of an organization.
Keeping up with changing business demands, the biggest challenge
It comes as no surprise that how an enterprise transacts business is constantly changing because IT is coming under constant pressure to update enterprise infrastructure and keep up with the changing demands. The demand for access to unprecedented amounts of insights from stakeholders including clients, prospects and partners besides untethered workforce has been pushing enterprises to sit up and take notice of this technology gap or stare at losing of business opportunities.
Cloud is the critical starting point
Given that the cost and effort involved in addressing these demands can be prohibitive, enterprises should therefore revisit options that can help them bridge the gap without hurting the bottom-line and stretching time. Cloud provides a critical starting point for organizations that are grappling with management of widely disparate, complex and legacy applications that simply refuse to scale or adapt.
Capitalize on the benefits of cloud
By turning to the cloud, organizations seeking to replace aging legacy and siloed applications can take huge advantage of scalability, huge cost savings, and data restoration to name of few. Most importantly they achieve all the same benefits, if not more benefits than legacy infrastructure offers because of the absence of expenses that comes with maintenance of server hardware. One of the very benefits of cloud approach is that it makes it possible to deliver an unprecedented level of agility, something unimaginable with existing systems.
Better IT related operations
Cloud is a set of servers, storage resources, databases and software that is used to enable enterprises to scale their IT infrastructure as they evolve. Before the advent of cloud computing, scaling IT environment to meet the increasing demands of business was rather met with log of difficulties. Cloud computing changed everything, it has made scaling up/down very simple, something a remote possibility. Many enterprises are gearing up by adopting cloud because they not only take a company to the next level but also accelerate IT modernization.
Exceed customer expectations
Meeting customer expectations is becoming one of the most difficult challenges facing enterprises. When done correctly successfully customer satisfaction can be a source of competitive advantage. With the rise of Omni channel touch points, customers are expecting a seamless digital experience and that means organizations need to distinguish themselves based on superior customer service.
Whether you are a FMCG anticipating thousands of orders or a financial organization seeking to streamline loan approval process, a customer comes with same expectations they had from retailers like Amazon and other online brands. That means enterprises must provide their customers Omni multi-channel experience to improve customer delight. A move to the cloud can help achieve this. By moving to the cloud, the businesses can avoid the cost of application infrastructure, reduce the need to invest in servers, workforce and activities associated with infrastructure management.
Cloud computing is something to embrace if you seek to help your business achieve more it won’t be too long before those enterprises that haven’t adapted cloud will find themselves left behind.
