Thoughts and insights

In a post pandemic world, there has been a huge interest in digital migration. All major cloud suppliers are investing heavily in infrastructure to encourage the move to the cloud. Lower costs and ease of transformation have made this a lot easier than before. Companies are seeing huge benefits in digitising all operations as part of their digital transformation strategy. Some benefits include:

  • Faster and integrated data management
  • Data driven insights – AI, analytics
  • Seamless user experience with better customer satisfaction
  • Increased collaboration and agility of the workplace
  • Reduction of human data processing and errors
  • Lots more…

Despite inflation and the economic slowdown, we will probably see a continual increase in cloud adoption and investment into new technology. Mckinsey recently wrote about the $1 trillion worth of value that can be unlocked with cloud migration. This can be easily achieved across all industry verticals. Exciting times ahead.
