Digital automation, for improved business processes and enhanced customer experience, is on the key priority list of increasing number of companies. However, in this pandemic-inflicted market uncertainty, many strategic Digital Transformation initiatives have been frozen or delayed.
Sava Vladov, Adastra VP Business Development and AWS Certified Solutions Architect, shares his view on open questions about Cloud computing that companies are raising nowadays.
Why is it crucial to run your business in the Cloud nowadays, especially in times of pandemic?
Financial factors are the first to be considered in these trying economic times. Dashed upfront investments, economy of scale and pay per use offerings are all Cloud benefits empowering businesses to pursue their digital strategy and adapt swiftly to customers’ evolving needs and increasingly selective buying decisions. Furthermore, the opportunity for on demand usage eliminates the need for early and often premature technology and sizing decisions. Companies can experiment and scale up and down, in accordance to their exact needs.
