Digital transformation is the latest catch cry of every business interested in doubling down on its investments. Increasingly, companies are searching for new and innovative models and technologies to achieve these aims. Imagine having the ability to know what your customer needs, before your customer even knows they need it. By leveraging cloud computing, businesses such as yours can understand your customers better, in a data-driven way. With information at your fingertips, you can access real-time data to make better decisions at pace. Cloud-based systems like Microsoft Azure provide the infrastructure needed for rapid deployment of 24/7 services and remote tools in a cost-efficient way.

The Challenges

Moving to the cloud is a significant undertaking for any business – planning and implementing; adopting change across people, process and technology; then maintaining, managing and optimising once you’re in. The cloud represents a big shift in thinking skills and processes. It is easy to get in, but difficult to get right. That is where experts such as Nexon come to the fore. With some careful planning, the cloud can solve a lot of problems in enterprise. Businesses can receive all the benefits of the cloud while keeping IT and the bottom-line happy. Keep what works and use the cloud to improve where you can.

The Benefits

One of the biggest benefits of moving to the cloud is that businesses do not need to invest large amounts of upfront capital. Where infrastructure and datacenters were treated like any other capital expense, purchased upfront with years of depreciation, the move to the cloud introduces a subscription-based operating expense model. Services essentially become metered by usage, meaning you only pay for what you use. That is when it can really be beneficial to have someone assess what you will need to transition to the cloud and manage the transition to reduce unnecessary costs.

It also significantly reduces the friction from the process associated with developing new products and services. Moving to the cloud puts new and emerging technology in the hands of businesses significantly faster, empowering them to achieve greater outcomes.

The Research

The global public cloud infrastructure market will grow 35 percent to $120 billion in 2021, as the cloud continues to “take centre stage” in the recovery from the global pandemic, according to Forrester Research published on technology news source CRN. “The aggressive move to cloud, already proceeding at a healthy clip before the pandemic, will spike in 2021, yielding even greater enterprise adoption, cloud provider revenue and business value,” the US-based market research company said in its “Predictions 2021” report.
