There is a New Speed of Business and Companies Need to Adapt


Email | Print

It’s time to take the first step and move to the cloud.

 

New technology is not only enabling new business models, it’s at a much faster rate than ever before. To be successful, companies need to enable their people and processes to respond quickly to changes in the market to capture new revenue opportunities.

 

Key market trends are driving changes to how companies think about business transformation and the applications that power it.  Some of these include;

 

  • PRODUCTIVITY: 40% of a worker’s productive time is lost when switching tasks. This costs the global economy $450B per year

 

  • SPEED OF BUSINESS: Organizations embracing digital transformation generate an average of $100M more income each year than those who lag.

 

Digital Transformation will enable Organizations to Capitalize on these Market Trends

 

Digital transformation is not simply about technology—it requires business leaders to re-envision existing business models and embrace a different way of bringing together people, data, and processes to create value for their customers and capture new opportunities for their organizations through systems of intelligence. The challenges facing businesses today are familiar: engaging customers, empowering employees, optimizing operations, and reinventing the value they offer their customers.

 

Businesses need to change and evolve to meet customer expectations and market demands to be successful - to develop new capabilities by transforming themselves into digital companies with systems of intelligence that leverage every system, device, process and asset across the organization. These systems of intelligence represent the ability to turn data and insight into intelligent action making every human interaction impactful and driving optimal business outcomes.

 

The first step to achieving these business outcomes during this digital journey is transforming your business to a cloud.

 

Transform Your Business to a Cloud Infrastructure

 

Moving from On-premise to The Cloud is a big step.

 

Have you considered the implications of moving your business from the traditional on-premise deployment to a cloud infrastructure?

 

The first conversation should be related to the potential cost savings. Most systems are delivered based on the ‘Tip of The Iceberg Principle’. While there might be On-premise license costs benefits, consideration should also be given to the what lies below the surface and how these costs could impact your business. Some of these hidden costs will include customization and implementation, hardware costs, IT personnel, training and maintenance.

 

Cloud computing can provide significant cost savings.

 

But … it also comes down to Trust.

 

Today your trust is in your IT team, who are tasked with keeping your business applications running and secure from potential security threats.

 

While it is easier to trust someone that you know, and have a personal relationship with, consideration should be given to ensure that you have an agile platform that will protect all your endpoints, immediately detect threats, and respond to any security breaches that may occur across your organization. The Microsoft Cloud offers a financially backed SLA’s for any downtime that may occur.

 

80% of the Fortune 500 is on the Microsoft Cloud.

 

Many organizations are still very reluctant to make this transformation to a Cloud infrastructure but have bridged the gap by moving workloads in a step by step manner. As an example, deployment of Office 365 could be the first step in moving your email workload to the cloud.

 

Microsoft is also unifying all its business applications. Breaking down the artificial silo’s of ERP and CRM and delivering new purpose-built applications in the cloud with Dynamics 365. These applications work seamlessly together to manage specific business processes across, Sales, Customer Service, Field Service, Operations, Project Service Automation and Marketing.
