Companies moving aggressively to adopt cloud computing are winning competitive advantage by reducing complexity and increasing business agility, according to a recent study by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services.
What is Business Agility?
It’s hard to define. Wikipedia’s article acknowledges that it has multiple issues. We’ll define it as the ability to react in a timely manner to changing business conditions. That could mean any number of things such as responding to customer complaints on social media or quickly creating new offerings to take advantage of the latest hot trend.
In many cases, this means giving your employees the ability to take the right action at the right time. Whether they’re at work in the office or on the road traveling to a meeting. At their desk or on the train.
That means automating and mobile-enabling everyday processes like purchase approvals, sales orders, trouble tickets and so on. These are routine day-to-day activities that employees spend a significant portion of their day on. They’re unique to your organization and it’s difficult to find pre-packaged applications that meet your exact needs. It’s no surprise that process automation (forms, routing) is the #1 app enterprises plan to build in 2015.
Cloud computing is an essential enabler. AWS and its kin allow any business to support millions of users. Incredibly cheap storage solutions from Dropbox, Microsoft and others let you access your data from anywhere on any device.
