When it comes to the modern business landscape, cloud computing has been revolutionary, impacting the way organizations manage their infrastructure, operations, and delivery of services.
When you think about the future of work, where do you envision your organization? Do you see it thriving and innovating for years to come? Or do you have concerns about its ability to adapt and change with hybrid and remote models?
In the business world, machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) are keys to the future of modern enterprises. A recent survey from ESIThoughtLab found that two-thirds of business leaders see AI as critically important for their future.
There’s no denying it: we live in a world driven by data. And for business enterprises, this is especially true. From healthcare and financial services to manufacturing and retail, organizations are turning to the cloud as a single source of truth to access and consume their data.
Welcome to the Agile Retail Era: Mission-Critical Ways to Strengthen Your Digital Acceleration Footing
For the most innovative leaders in retail, digital transformation is nothing new. In fact, forward-thinking C-suite execs began preparing for digitization decades ago to account for artificial intelligence (AI), the internet of things (IoT), machine learning (ML), and more.
As the world looks forward to life beyond the pandemic, the technologies that cushioned the shock in 2020 are delivering for the recovery. In particular, employment services are playing a key role.
Today’s business leaders have come to terms with the fact that they must harness the power of the cloud to remain competitive and thrive in an increasingly digital world. This journey begins with successful cloud adoption and understanding the importance of the human factor of moving to the cloud.
The concept of smart manufacturing is nothing new; for years, manufacturers have tried to use computer automation to improve elements of operations, such as productivity, quality, cost, safety and delivery. But the idea of running a holistic smart manufacturing operation is new.
The ascendance of the cloud is enabling remarkable business transformations, new initiatives and improved results for enterprise. But, underneath it all, there is one inescapable fact: business leaders don’t begin crafting strategy with the thought, “the cloud will be integral in addressing our challenges.” With that, datacenter transformation is likely not top-of-mind.
Many are ready to abandon the term “digital transformation” because they feel that overuse has put it in danger of becoming so genericized that it is meaningless. However, any move to write off digital transformation as irrelevant is premature.
Cloud migration presents unique challenges, but the rate at which enterprise organizations are adopting the cloud is only increasing. More than 88% of organizations use cloud in some form, with almost a quarter expected to move all their applications to the cloud within 12 months. This number may even be higher than anticipated, as Flexera found that 59% of enterprises expect cloud usage to exceed prior plans due to COVID-19.
Most businesses would have sunk in the face of the challenges raised by the pandemic as recently as a decade ago. But over the years, advancements in technology have given organizations the ability to swim amid a disruption of this nature, as the cloud and other emerging technologies joined forces to become a life preserver in a sea of uncertain times.
As businesses face unprecedented change, they are rethinking the tools and technologies they use―and the places they need to be―in order to innovate and grow. McKinsey research has shown that to cope with the changing environment, organizations with agile practices embedded in their operating models have performed better than their peers.
