Cloud increases the organizational efficiency
Manish Sinha, Global Application Manager SAP, Busch Vacuum Pumps and Systems
"A corporate cannot neglect that hybrid cloud are the only options they have to go for in future as all they cannot host, all they cannot load on public infra, at times they also need flexibility and agility to move fast with fast decisions of the business. If they miss the train then Business will be nowhere at its destination and that journey would be really painful, we already have seen lot of example with very big giants on the very first day of their launch- customer site go crashed and customers never returned to them taking their first impression out there.
First and foremost, it gives a Greenfield to experiment for all upcoming technologies and even for legacy applications. Now various cloud option come with trial offers- which are useful for IT teams to do their experimentation and give recommendation to management as an influencer of technology. Earlier days this platform provisioning was a tough to get approval from management.
The next great factor is speed, it really works fantastic when we discuss and see the results on screen with the help of tools like AI. It brings automation to many manual tasks and that increases organizational efficiency. When we see RPA like technologies leveraging in service desk management that itself is a promising business case for a company having multi-country operations and where people are working in different time zones.
We cannot be everywhere to control breaches. These are both internals and externals. So somewhere we must draw a line and start trusting solutions, solution providers and our own ecosystem. But yes, we cannot control all of them with a single point strategy. But instead we must look for different avenues of contributions such as some could be control and managed by tools, some by policies and some from employee or vendor /supplier agreements such as code of conduct, supplier agreements etc.
It all draws from board room where technology does not mean only IT department as accountable but where promoters believe that business is there baby and all departments are enabler and helper to make that baby grow as per board room’s wish but the room has to give full trust and ownership to decide what is best for the baby then later as per budget they can decide which route to take and finally reaching the ultimate destination.”
