Creating agile enterprises

Every business wants more customers. But what happens when they get a lot more customers, faster than expected, or when a product suddenly goes from never-heard-of-it to got-to-have-it? That's when a business can't afford to be unavailable and that's when a business needs to migrate to the cloud.



It all comes down to how the cloud can help businesses become more agile and scale up to demand pressures given existing computing resources, and do it more securely. The cloud will help change the way businesses and individuals communicate, collaborate, share, buy, and sell. This is one more way to deliver real business solutions to real business challenges.

If you look through the history of businesses, there has been a number of paradigm shifts. One of the first agile changes in the industry involved the utility grid. If you go back to the late 1900s, 90% of businesses generated their own power. Within the next two decades, over 85% of the businesses were consuming their power from the grid. With the cloud, you pay for what you use. It's a meet-it-when-its-need-it service. The reality is that the cloud is fundamentally changing how businesses, enterprises, and consumers are going to access content.

The first instance of cloud service goes back to e-commerce. The next great wave of innovation and change occurred, based on how we communicated and collaborated through IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS.


However, the next great frontier of the cloud is going to be about the entire technology stack moving to the cloud.


Imagine what a cloud enterprise platform can do for your business. While there are many reasons to migrate to the cloud, there are some critical questions holding businesses back. Does the enterprise cloud allow for a true hybrid embedded environment? Is it secure? Would I need to ensure my data is compatible, while I move from one platform to another? What is the best migration strategy? It's very important that when a company migrates to cloud, the move is seamless, simple, and secure.

Looking at the current cloud trends, clearly it signifies the traditional business models fading away, creating opportunities for new service delivery models, and operational structures-and for a more agile, innovative, and successful enterprise.
