As digitization advances at a breathtaking pace, companies are finding themselves under increasing pressure to respond to the challenges ahead in a timely manner. Here, modern, flexible and networked enterprise software generates data en masse, data that will need to be used for future decision-making within the digital value chain.
To run a large plant, machine rooms or data warehouses, and to simultaneously ensure continuous hardware and software maintenance, a traditional in-house IT system is usually neither well-enough equipped, nor does it have the personnel required. A cloud-based infrastructure is the best way to meet this challenge. This kind of infrastructure allows you to scale your enterprise IT as needed, without having to change the size of your team. And optional service agreements with the cloud provider guarantee its essential 24/7 availability.
If you want to take advantage of cloud-based strategies today, then you will also need to overcome your old habits and how you usually do things. It helps to ask the following questions:
Focus on greater flexibility to meet the new challenges. Expand the existing infrastructure with scalable functions. Think outside the box
Ask questions. Question yourself! You can still be happy with yourself and your decisions later on. Give serious and careful consideration to new investments. Advanced software architecture is a prerequisite for the future – because the future is digital!
