Cloud: A critical foundation for future innovation

Your customers demand better, faster, more secure services. Your employees want smarter technology and automated processes, with the flexibility to work remotely. And your competitors are a greater threat than ever as they become increasingly responsive, agile and efficient.  

It’s clear that if your business is going to stay in the game, your people need to innovate. And in order to innovate, they need a platform that can handle their ideas, one that can flex and grow with the business.

It’s no wonder that today’s CEOs expect CIOs to not only lead technology priorities, but also to strongly influence the company’s overall business vision and strategy. It’s hardly an overstatement to say that the future of your organisation lies in the hands of the IT department.

Forward-thinking IT leaders know that they need to lay the foundation for future innovation now – before it’s too late.

Ironically, that foundation is a cloud.

Cloud technology allows you to deliver IT as a service, creating a platform that can flex and scale as your business innovates. It enables speed, efficiency and scale – automating manual tasks and streamlining operations to free up resources and fuel digital transformation initiatives. All with lower costs and greater security. Adopting a cloud platform is the first step in any successful IT Transformation initiative.

The results are clear

An IDC study on enterprise cloud adoption proves that high-performing organisations embrace innovative cloud strategies. As a result, they’re realising big benefits, including a 42% reduction in IT labour costs, a 32% reduction in infrastructure costs and a 4.4 times greater rate of customer acquisition.
