The world has entered a new era where products, services, processes, and culture are all undergoing a massive digital transformation powered by cloud computing. As a result of new and improved digital experiences, the worldwide market for cloud-based services continues to expand, with companies across industries transitioning to a cloud-first strategy.
Even companies that do not provide their products via the cloud are finding themselves turning to cloud-based services to operate. Access and consumption points now span across all boundaries including home, work, and mobile as workers and customers collaborate seamlessly using the cloud-enabled digital experience. Due to the ease of access and flexibility offered, many have become accustomed to (and expect) on-demand services regardless of where they are.
