There has been one word that has dominated the business operational landscape in recent years and that word is “cloud”. More and more businesses and vendors have adopted some form of cloud-based services to help in the running of day-to-day business.
Slowly coming to an end are the days of large servers and slow local networks. These are all being replaced by cloud-based integration and applications. It is not just businesses on the ground floor adopting this, many vendors are also adopting the cloud to integrate their businesses and enterprises as well. The advantages of a cloud-based ecosystem are many with the ability to gauge and make decisions in real-time to the ability to have a cloud connection with any web browser or device.
The stories run abound of businesses holding on to an archaic or obsolete vehicle of doing business. They were slow to adapt to the changes and eventually lost to the ones who adapted to the changes and utilized technology to enhance business. Don’t let the train take off and leave you behind, embrace the cloud as it’s here to stay.
