Strategic Business Decisions Consulting : The Future is to Move to Cloud Computing

2020 was a watershed year that redefined many companies’ relationship with technology. People can work from anywhere, everyone is relying on online shopping, patients are using remote medicine, and individuals are connecting with one another through remote meetings. As a result of these changes, the shift to cloud computing will only accelerate in 2021 as companies continue to move applications and services to the cloud. This reliance on the cloud, along with the arrival of 5G networks and WiFi6, allows for faster access and better availability of mobile services. “We have seen changes to how we work and live affected by technologies such as internet, cloud computing, to how we use technology in our daily lives,” says Bita Massoudi, CEO, Strategic Business Decisions Consulting. She goes on to mention that this increased dependence on the cloud will necessitate the providers to innovate in order to create new business models, partner with vendor organizations to meet the varying needs of their customers and increase the ease with which their customers can lift and shift their workloads to the cloud. Cloud computing will also increase the need and reliance on other technology trends, including responsible AI, process automation, 5G connectivity, and ‘as a service’ solutions. These trends will drive new innovations in cloud usage and availability.

Moving to the cloud requires companies to deploy apps to the cloud, set up authentication and authorizations for their apps and their users. Also, products such as Windows Azure make it very easy to set up cloud identities technical can also use. At the same time, companies will continue to deal with the challenges of cybersecurity and privacy as the rapid move to the distributed cloud services continues. Tools such as AI are evolving rapidly to support cybersecurity efforts. Some enterprises may also look at multi-cloud solutions that include both private and public cloud solutions. “An important part of digital transformation is customer experiences. Companies are discovering that Customer experiences are intertwined with employee experiences and have to be considered together,” states Bita Massoudi.

Additionally, as more human activity is moving online, there will be a rapid movement to automate tasks as well as end-to-end experiences to gain efficiencies. Technologies such s machine learning and AI have a great impact. Because of the speed to process vast amounts of data, such technologies can help find patterns in vast amounts of data, and both systems can continue to learn and improve as more data becomes available. “Businesses must understand that to stay relevant in this age of rapid change, they need to embrace digital transformation. There are new entrants that are born in the cloud and are disruptive to every industry. Additionally, companies must understand their customers’ journey,” says Bita Massoudi.
The journey for digital transformation starts with an understanding of a customer’s needs and experiences. Barry Massoudi, COO, Strategic Business decisions adds, “Most organizations overlook and underestimate the pain points and obstacles that their customers face in adopting and using and managing their services and products. They must identify the benefits case that goes with digital transformation in terms of gaining efficiencies, reducing expenses, increasing employee productivity, attracting more customers, and enabling better ongoing decision making.”
