Economic turbulence drove organizations to look to technology to automate, reduce infrastructure spend and maintain the status quo.
Enterprises are embracing the cloud to provide the agility and flexibility that they need to compete. Cloud transformation is essential for these organizations if they are to survive and thrive. They can scale up or down as required, without having to make significant capital investments in new hardware, particularly important given today’s uncertain economic conditions.
