A cloud revolution is sweeping the planet. Increasing numbers of companies across the world are recognizing the numerous tangible benefits for their business, and for their customers, of transitioning their operations to the cloud. The change is hardly limited to digital companies, and indeed, cloud solutions are expanding most rapidly in traditionally non-digital sectors. Companies looking to make the cloud transition are facing the business-critical but daunting challenge of selecting the right cloud solution from a multitude of vendors - one that meets the needs of their specific operations and that can also provide their business with the flexibility to adapt as cloud technologies evolve.
What does this mean for external IT partners? Among other things, it tells us that what businesses need more than ever is a partner that not only understands their individual business requirements, but that also possesses deep expertise on cloud technologies - with the ability to provide the knowledge, skills, and reassurance to help customers transform their businesses.
