Embracing the Future in the Cloud

It’s true. Cloud adoption is and has continued to rise. Cloud-based solutions have enabled organizations to be agile in ways that were not possible 10 years ago. Organizations have more options and can be more strategic in how they choose to spend IT time and expenditures. Now, with the benefits of a cloud infrastructure, organizations can expand, react, and achieve their business goals quickly and without the heavy upfront costs associated with investing in new infrastructure.

Historically, organizations have been skittish about storing data in the cloud, pointing to concerns over security of sensitive data, reliability issues, accessibility, and compliance. However, cloud environments are growing in sophistication and these challenges are becoming less of an impediment.
