Your organization should not be afraid to build a cloud based infrastructure.
Whether it’s on your phone, laptop or tablet, almost everything connects to the cloud — and for good reason! Cloud computing offers the promise of creating efficiencies and achieving economies of scale through better data access and flexibility. However, first and foremost, cloud computing is about creating business value and capturing market opportunities, not just backing up your photos and contacts.
In a recent study by Oxford Economics and SAP, 31% of the 200 surveyed senior business and IT executives said that cloud computing made a transformative impact on their business. Approximately half of the respondents stated that cloud computing already had a moderate impact on their business performance. The main takeaway of this study is that over the next three years, the majority expect to see significant impacts on top-line revenue growth through cloud computing.
The adoption and use of cloud technology offers plenty of opportunities, but — like all technology at some point or another — it is not without challenges. Some companies struggle to define the real benefits of cloud computing instead of seeing the potential of cloud computing in adding value. In order to track the return on investment (ROI) on cloud, companies need to set and compare specific metrics of traditional IT with cloud computing solutions. These can include time, quality, and compliance, as well as revenue and profitability improvements. On the other hand, some companies have data security and privacy concerns. Those are also valid concerns since cloud computing introduces another level of risk to the company because essential services are often outsourced to a third party. It is harder to maintain data integrity and privacy, support data and service availability, and demonstrate compliance.
