Businesses today need to be able to handle significant upheaval, compete with digital-native disruptors unencumbered by legacy infrastructure, protect critical data and applications, and deliver exemplary experiences to both customers and employees. Failure to do so directly impacts the bottom line. To stay competitive in a rapidly changing business landscape, you must meet four major technology challenges:
  • First, focus on innovation to reach new markets and customers. Innovation will also allow you to become predictive rather than reactive, creating stand-out journeys for all users, whether buyers or workers.
  • Second, become more resilient to handle the disruption of the world today, whether political turmoil, natural disaster, medical crisis, cyber threat or rapidly emerging regulations.
  • Third, protect your systems, services, data and applications. Your customers and employees have to be able to trust you.
  • Fourth, accelerate transformation efforts. You will need to address both the processes and systems underpinning your operations and the culture across the organization. New skills need to be acquired and developed – no easy task at a time of talent scarcity – to improve the adoption and use of new technology.

A catalyst for change: the cloud

You need the right foundation to become more innovative, transform your business, and be more resilient. Your infrastructure must provide the agility and scalability to adjust to rapidly changing markets while maintaining security, controlling costs, and optimizing resources.
Using the cloud helps you meet these needs while increasing business sustainability and flexibility. Cloud allows you to:

  • Directly map IT spending to business priorities and automate your entire architecture
  • Access compute power faster to tackle the increase in the amount of data you need to collect, store and process
  • Become much more innovative, deploying artificial intelligence and machine learning to deliver the experiences your users demand
  • Manage the complexity of security and privacy issues, particularly around data

Cloud provides more scalable storage and allows you to move data and workloads into the environments that suit their needs, wherever users are located. In addition, you can be more resilient and agile by using cloud-native apps that are designed and developed for the cloud. They allow you to respond rapidly to market changes, whether updating applications, deploying new versions, or altering features without taking services offline.
Deploying cloud-native tools means more reliable application performance, faster release dates, greater ease of management, reduced costs through containerization, and superior customer experience.
