Cloud Computing and IT Strategy

Business and technology executives are including cloud computing in their long-term IT strategy. No surprise as cloud’s emergence as a catalyst for innovation, flexibility, agility and scalability of organisations across all industries. 

Cloud computing, often referred to as just “the cloud,” is the delivery of dynamically scalable, convenient and on-demand access to a variety of internet-powered services – everything from applications to data centres – as a service over the Internet (public cloud) or intranet (private cloud) on a flexible pay-for-use basis. However, the most commonly used type is Software as a Service (SaaS).

Why Cloud Computing Should be a Part of Your Business Strategy

We believe cloud computing services is one of the top value-producing digital technologies. Unlike traditional sourced IT services, cloud-based systems are easy to deploy, require little resource involvement, virtually no capital investment or significant support structure to integrate. Even businesses that have embraced the cloud can gain more value from further adoption and integration into their organisation’s business strategy. 

One note of caution: some engagement models require a higher cost per user and security, privacy and other risks which need to be considered when making investments. Hiring an IT expert will prevent your business from making any risky or unnecessary investments that may not provide a return of investment.
