5 ways that cloud solutions power business agility
Change is undoubtedly a double-edged sword for businesses. While it can offer unprecedented opportunity to drive top-line revenue and improve efficiency, it can also pose big challenges for your core operations and infrastructure.
Change comes in many forms. It can be new products, customer segments, and suppliers; mergers and acquisitions; or expanding geographies. All provide opportunities for growth, but only if you’re in a position to capitalise on them.
The key to achieving the next level of success is to make change your friend, using it as an opportunity to improve processes rather than being imprisoned by your current infrastructure.
There’s nothing more frustrating than seeing a market opportunity and not being able to seize it. Or seizing the opportunity, then being unable to execute well enough to realise its full potential.
Increasingly, cloud technology is being seen as an essential tool for turning change from a threat into an opportunity.
Understanding of cloud computing within the general business community has been an evolutionary process; however, the picture of what it is, how it works, and what it means has become crystal clear.
Imagine being able to:
- Open new offices and acquire new companies without having to worry about buying servers or managing a myriad of technology platforms.
- Expand and contract system capacity seamlessly to accommodate seasonal or cyclical variations.
- Reduce the burden on IT and allow those valuable resources to focus on more strategic activities.
- Enable employees to work the way they live—on their mobile devices and on-the-go.
