Stay ahead of change with immediate access to cloud applications.
An ever-changing and volatile business landscape is creating constant, and constantly evolving, pressures on companies. Its global nature brings new sources of agile competition and complexity to value chains. The empowered consumer wields more information than ever before, communicating in new ways and on new types of devices. An estimated one trillion devices will be connected to the Internet by 2013.
These forces are driving a shift in computing models as organizations – driven by line-of-business needs rather than technology – turn to the cloud. When adopted as part of a broader business strategy, cloud becomes an enabler and catalyst not just to rethink IT but also to reinvent and transform business processes.
Companies at the forefront are turning to the cloud to respond to these forces. Implemented properly, a cloud strategy can adjust quickly, create new business models and respond to the needs and demands of everyone – from customers to employees and beyond.
