The future of your company demands agile cloud systems
An entirely new generation of employees are entering the workforce. These employees are often referred to as digital natives.
This generation expects their applications to be easy to use, intuitive and accessible on both mobile devices and tablets. If any given application doesn’t meet these criteria, the typical behaviour of most digital natives is to delete it and move on to the next, meaning they are application agile. By nature, most digital natives are entirely at odds with most legacy systems, making it very difficult to recruit talent that refuse to use outdated technologies.
Moore’s Law, to paraphrase, says that computers double in speed, capacity and more every 18 months. This law is time and again used to impart the speed at which technology moves, which is incredibly fast. Now think about your corporate legacy system that your infrastructure is saddled with – when was the last time it was updated?
The COVID pandemic has shed light on the many limitations that come with most legacy systems, especially as companies are forced to transition their staff to work from home. Many on-premise legacy systems cannot be accessed remotely without needing to invest in expensive workarounds or implementing VPNs, neither of which are ideal as they are adding to the stack of legacy technologies that will need to be regularly maintained.
So what is the ideal solution to outdated in-house servers?
Cloud software runs on cutting-edge data centers, constantly updated and upgraded by the cloud providers, and offers instant access to applications from any internet-connected device, from anywhere in the world, at any time of day – it does not require you to be in the office, or even connected to the office via a VPN.
Why move to the cloud?
The main benefits of switching from on-prem to a cloud-based infrastructure revolve around its flexibility, reliability, security and of course, cost-savings. It also removes the hassle of needing to maintain and update your systems entirely. It’s no surprise that cloud computing has grown in popularity as much as it has, as it offers a long list of benefits when being compared to on-prem systems.
Not all cloud-based applications are created equal
