The cloud and your IT infrastructure: 9 considerations fro your cloud application strategy
The hype around cloud computing has been tremendous. It’s also proven to be justified. In fact, most organisations are already operating with some element of a cloud service as part of their IT infrastructure. While on- premise software becomes obsolete and hybrid solutions fall short, cloud applications enable new ways of delivering innovative solutions. These solutions are practical, and they are easy to use and manage. The cloud now provides the fundamental infrastructure on which innovative organisations can run their businesses.

And that solution should improve the customer experience through regular, cloud-optimised software updates.
