For most companies, digitalization is now a reality, even a necessity. Almost every organization is therefore either taking steps in the area of digital services, or should be doing do so to remain relevant in the long run. Cloud technology is one of the drivers of the Digital Flow movement because it allows you to focus on business and business innovation, and to insource the basic IT components required for this as a scalable service.
IDC: as more than half the global economy turns digital by 2023, a new species of enterprise will be required to compete and thrive. Over 500 million digital apps and services will be developed and deployed using Cloud-native approaches – the same number of apps developed in the last 40 years. This explosion of new digital apps and services will define the new minimum competitive requirements in every industry.
Cloud transformation isn't just about technology, although obviously the technology component is important. It is actually more about a new way of working that will allow you to use Cloud technology to prepare your business for success in the digital world.
If you want to use the Cloud as a foundation of your digital strategy, this is not only about re-thinking IT, but also about a business turnaround and maximizing shared value across all stakeholders and domains and realizing digital leadership.
