The Cloud is foundational technology. It is revolutionising how businesses and individuals compute and store information. The Cloud is still steeped in hardware – servers, data centres – but it is scalable, reliable, cost effective, and able to more rapidly drive business goals.
The Cloud breaks us out of legacy solutions based on databases or middleware and hard to manage hardware,” says Mark Schlesinger, chief technology advisor and technology fellow at Broadridge. It allows enterprises to end long and expensive cycles of testing and procurement. Firms can focus instead on agile innovation and timely development of business solutions – including artificial intelligence, blockchain and digitalisation.
When it comes to innovation and adaptability, the Cloud is now essential. Testing new products, personalising an investment offer, engaging with a client, or building APIs (application programming interfaces) to connect with third parties, require the speed and scaling of the public Cloud.
