Video interview with Sue Daley on the next 15 years of cloud computing
Cloud computing forms the cornerstone
to the next wave of digital development.
The cloud will provide the data storage, processing and analytical capabilities
needed to unlock its value.
Technology has enabled businesses to become more responsive to customers’ needs, with employees able to access the same computing services, platforms and power at home and on the move as they can in the office.
This mobility – (the ability to access a company’s core business systems and data from any location or conduct analysis of business data on the move using a smartphone, laptop or tablet) – and agility will not be possible without cloud computing’s capacity and economies of scale that enable businesses to access increasingly complex computing applications and services on a pay-as-you-use basis.
The financial flexibility of cloud services means companies are gaining operational efficiencies whilst reducing their IT expenditure.
The development of a mobile, responsive, flexible, agile workforce has become a reality due to services and applications built, managed and accessed using cloud computing.
