Everyday, businesses generate huge volumes of data, both structured and unstructured, forming what is known today as big data. Analysis of big data gives companies a competitive advantage with in-depth and more insightful findings for effective decision making.
With the increased use of big data for analytics and DSML solutions, many businesses have put in place cloud migration plans for cost effective information processing. Another reason cloud solutions and storage options are generating quite a lot of interest in many markets is scalability. As businesses scale up or down to keep up with their business requirements, cloud providers take care of IT maintenance and operational expenses, such as security and disaster recovery, to ensure business continuity.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, the digital world has also seen an early onset of cloud migration activities due to the ease of access and flexibility the cloud offers. Remote working options amidst lockdowns and social distancing requirements were more easily adapted by those that had migrated to the cloud.
If you are part of a business that still has traditional on-premises infrastructure but would like to reap all the benefits of the cloud, all the while ensuring cost effectiveness and business continuity, it is time to start investing in a strong cloud strategy to avoid the risk of falling behind your competition and losing your competitive edge.
