If you work in tech – and even if you don’t – you’ll know the digital world and cloud companies are changing rapidly. The pace of change has accelerated. Thanks to several factors, including the faster adoption of cloud services over the pandemic period. Also to the emergence of new technologies, the way businesses operate and handle data is also changing.
A model of IT service delivery in which a company stores its data on a remote server and shares that data with employees via the internet, cloud computing is the delivery of computer services and applications via internet-connected data centers. These services are scalable, flexible, reliable, and secure.
The cloud offers flexibility and the ability for a business to scale up or down as it needs. It also offers scalability and efficiency compared to older on-premise solutions, so you can add or remove resources and access them from any device as and when needed. This enables businesses to operate more efficiently and get more value from their IT budgets.
It’s no surprise that there has been an explosion in the number of companies offering cloud products and services in recent years. In August, Forbes released its sixth annual Cloud 100 List, ranking the top 100 private cloud companies in the world.
