Public cloud

A new contender is in town

To stay ahead of the curve, companies must be agile, open to constantly rethinking their business and eager to embrace new technologies like analytics, artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things (IoT)

Let cloud computing be your an enabler: it can helps businesses drive innovation, agility and growth. Companies in the past, stuck to on-premise or private cloud for security and compliance reasons. As public cloud is rapidly gain steam, learn why embracing it might be a better decision.

Cloud technology, which has been around for over 10 years now, comes in three varieties:

Private Cloud 
Your data, applications and platforms are stored on infrastructure dedicated entirely to your business, yet hosted by a third party – either on your site or at the service provider’s data center.

Public Cloud
Data, applications and platforms are offered by third-party providers over the internet, making them available to anyone who wants to use or purchase them.

Hybrid Cloud 
A combination of both where partial data will be stored in the private cloud and while some within the public cloud storage.

The rise of the public cloud

CIOs historically choose private cloud for security & compliance reasons. However, as the technology matures, these objections are shrinking.

According to a Gartner report, the worldwide public cloud service market is projected to grow by 21.7% in 2022. Companies are stepping away from their on-site data centers to run new solutions as well as legacy systems in the public cloud as they start to understand its benefits.

Why consider public cloud?

Business focus first

Public cloud can help you focus on what you do best – create value and drive revenue – rather than spend time managing your IT infrastructure and platforms. Data loss and downtime would be in past as service providers automatically pushes upgrades to systems and correct errors.

Today, public cloud are more secure than its private counterpart. Huge investments in security are made by public cloud providers as they simply cannot afford security breaches.

Enjoy maximum agility 

Add or remove computing power to meet your real-time business needs. Additionally, public cloud solutions help speed up the application development process; enabling you to flexibly meet end user needs. Cloud-based platforms like SAP S/4HANA Cloud and Microsoft Dynamics 365 can be implemented within months, not years.

Choose innovation and growth 

Users would always access to content on their preferred device. Develop new solutions and grow your business with new technologies like IoT and artificial intelligence, which are available only as cloud services. Moreover, many product today are also designed based on a cloud-first approach.
