Companies that are looking at cloud solutions are motivated by driving down costs and by avoiding upgrades and sidestepping investments that aren’t going to move them forward.
The reasons for making the move to the cloud are many, but the results are typically the same: faster innovation, greater scale, lower costs, and operational excellence.
If cost savings were the only benefit of moving to the cloud, it would barely be worth the effort. The cloud is the tactic that makes your overall business strategy shine.
Australian Finance Group moved about 80 applications to the cloud, allowing the company to shut down its two data centers and save about $385,000 a year.
After being named CFO of Detroit shortly after the city filed for bankruptcy, John Hill knew that going with a cloud solution would enable the finance operation to move in the right direction quickly.
