In an ever-increasing sea of cloud start-ups, companies that are standing out are adding value to hyper-scale computing power. Cloud start-ups are helping several industrial sectors embrace flexible, hybrid IT environments for running both existing and new workloads, especially as new use cases, including those that harness IoT and AI, emerge onto the scene. Cloud technology offers unparalleled agility and speed, which supports innovation, optimisation and sustainability.
Organisations view the cloud as an opportunity to implement exciting new technologies and services as the business outcomes from utilising cloud technology include entering new markets and industries, quickly developing and deploying new offerings, expanding product and service features, discovering new sources of revenue and improved customer experience. Cloud acts as a doorway to innovation for organisations that need to process massive amounts of data in an economically viable, environmentally sustainable and socially responsible way. Multi-cloud environments are emerging as a default option among many companies looking to enhance flexibility and to avoid vendor lock-in. Also, for life sciences companies, where the demands of research and development surpass traditional on-premises computing scalability, Cloud computing has become a strategic imperative.
