Accelerating the journey to the cloud to digitise quickly in the aftermath of Covid-19

As the global coronavirus pandemic saw entire workforces being sent home to work, massive portions of work and everyday life found their way onto cloud infrastructure practically overnight. For those who were well on the way in their cloud journeys, the cloud delivered, scaling dramatically and reliably to meet unprecedented and unplanned demand.

The cloud continues to deliver and prove its worth. It brings ubiquitous computing at scale, democratises technologies that were previously only accessible to the largest enterprises, and provides vital connectivity for businesses and people alike. It ensures users can access critical business information, while enabling secure real-time collaboration between co-workers.

Cloud computing has become much more than a limitless expanse of servers and software that companies pay to use over the Internet. It is the essence of modern computing, where services connect to meet a limitless number of application needs.

In the wake of COVID-19, cloud adoption has hit another growth spurt, with organisations across the board adopting hybrid, multi-cloud strategies to unlock the power of mixing and matching cloud services into solutions that address practically every business need.

Organisations in every sector have realised they need to plan strategically, despite an uncertain future. For CIOs and other IT leaders, the situation brings a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to accelerate positive change and innovation for business.
