The ongoing mass adoption of cloud has had a transformative impact on organisations over the past decade. More recently, the COVID-19 pandemic has led to a significant acceleration of cloud adoption, as businesses were forced to move employees, almost overnight to virtual working environments. This dramatic shift led to a surge of new cloud computing trends and developments, and it was rightly credited as fundamental to keeping the country working, and employees connected throughout the pandemic.
As businesses adjust to the post pandemic new norm, the argument has permanently shifted from viewing cloud as simply a cost-cutting opportunity, to an enabler of business transformation. As such, many leaders are reassessing their cloud value proposition and looking for ways to exploit these new opportunities for competitive advantage.
Cloud computing has the power to disrupt business models. In our The 2023 Disruptive Trends Report, cloud computing was ranked 4th amongst technologies predicted to have the greatest disruptive impact on business models this year. The same report predicts that AI, ML and AR/VR/MR will have the greatest disruptive impact on business models in the future, so business leaders need to explore now how cloud can enable these even more transformative technologies.
Whether you’re looking to optimise your existing cloud platform, or to migrate more workloads, it’s important to have the right cloud strategy that mitigates against the common pain points of cloud adoption. Join our discussion on 26 May to explore the latest developments and trends in cloud computing and to discuss solutions to the knottiest challenges facing technology and information leaders today.
