The Future of Cloud is Dynamic

By | May 14, 2014

With plenty of options for small businesses to choose from, which cloud is best: public, private, hybrid? If the future of small business is cloud, then the future of cloud is dynamic. And as small businesses decide to move to the cloud, they soon discover that even more choices await them.

Cloud refers to a technology that specializes in storing and processing data in a physical space separate from a company’s location of business, but underneath the umbrella of that definition there are many different types of cloud setups. As cloud adoption grows amongst small businesses, companies have an increasing amount of resources all located on multiple different platforms. As business technology has grown and evolved, it is no longer simply a case of public versus private. Technology is quickly becoming a hybrid of traditional IT and cloud. By the end of the year, it is estimated that 61% of enterprises will be functioning in a hybrid environment.

Businesses using cloud consistently outrank their peers in the areas of revenue growth, gross profit growth, and expansion. These businesses utilize cloud in a variety of ways that distinguishes them from other businesses in similar markets.  They use cloud to integrate data across multiple applications, seek out borderless platforms, prioritize open cloud environments, and use cloud analytics in their decision-making processes. This type of multi-platform integration is ready to be taken to the next step with Dynamic Hybrid Cloud.
