IBM's latest study, Undercloud cover: How leaders are accelerating competitive differentiation, states that “Over the next three years, cloud’s strategic importance to business users is expected to double from 34 percent to 72 percent, even surpassing their IT counterparts at 58 percent."
What are market leaders doing differently?
Today cloud is a business reality, a phenomenon where everything is done, executed, stored and distributed through internet of things. The leading organizations, called pacesetters, have discovered cloud as a growth engine and have adopted cloud to the highest levels. These organizations draw valuable insights from their data and transform how they make decisions. It enables them to tap expertise from across their entire ecosystem and enjoy competitive advantage through customer engagement, better decisions and deeper collaboration.
What are the other organizations loosing?
The other organizations that are still in initial stages of cloud deployment are falling behind the pacesetters in reinventing customer relationship by 136%, using analytics by 170% and leverage expert knowledge across their ecosystem by 79%.
Are you thinking of moving to cloud and are worried about some issues?
