In today’s fast-paced and increasingly competitive business arena, enterprises must look to
technological developments to help maintain a competitive edge. Agility, the ability of an
enterprise to respond to changes in the business environment without losing momentum, is
essential to success.
One of the most powerful tools available to modern businesses, and one that is increasingly being adopted by leading global enterprises, is cloud computing. A recent survey by NorthBridge1 found that respondents had over 70% of IT services in the cloud, and 75% of other business functions including sales and marketing, business analytics, and customer service either located in or moving to the cloud.
