“66% of organisations have adopted a Cloud first strategy since 2018”
Throughout the past decade, Cloud technology has evolved significantly and has become a fundamental component in ‘digital transformation’ strategies for many businesses.
The Covid-19 pandemic has not only accelerated the adoption of Cloud processes within many organisations, but has also made it possible for users to keep the lines of communication open whilst accessing critical documents.
This process, now done via the Cloud was previously only available physically or ‘offline’, really demonstrating how Cloud technologies play a huge role in remote working.
Over the years demand for Cloud services has continued to grow. Evolving technology has meant that employee work patterns have changed over time meaning employees are no longer bound to working from a single desktop, yet instead they are able to work wirelessly via multiple devices and Cloud systems.
As the Cloud continues to make inroads within many organisations business strategies, all stakeholders are looking forward to the evolution of the model. As things stand today, almost every significant innovation such as artificial intelligence, AR/VR, robotics, and IoT rely on cloud computing technology.
It’s not just computational power, networking speed, or storage capacity that makes cloud computing great. Those are just operational metrics that better technology would eventually change and replace over time. The real value of technology is what it does, not what it’s made of.
Almost everything in the digital world is connected to the cloud in some way or another — unless it’s specifically kept in local storage for security reasons. As tech giants and startups find new ways to organise, process and present data cloud computing will become a more and more integral part of our lives if it hasn’t done so already.
