It’s a rare technology conversation today that doesn’t include the cloud platform. Cloud is a once-in-a-generation technology advancement, and our customers are using the power of cloud to reimagine their businesses—whether by accelerating innovation, enabling new business scenarios, speeding time to market, or driving cost savings.
We believe it’s no longer a question of if but when most companies will adopt cloud technologies. At a time when everything has gone mobile, when social computing is redefining how people communicate, and when data stores are exploding and leading to new insights, the cloud platform is the key enabler. Our customers are using cloud to support collaboration through social to speed innovation. They are looking to the cloud as they build and deliver apps to reach new customers in new ways. They are relying on the cloud as they store, manage, and analyze huge volumes of data to identify opportunities to target customers in more effective ways or optimize their operations. Cloud is the foundation for a reimagined business.
With cloud solutions, you can put tools and data in the hands of your leaders to uncover insights for competitive advantage. You can enable your employees to collaborate and work on the go, so inspiration can come from anywhere. You can make social an intrinsic part of the business, so you can be more fully connected and engaged internally and reach customers in new ways externally. And with our hybrid public and private cloud platform, you can optimize your IT and deliver flexible, responsive services to your business users. We deliver people-focused cloud experiences through comprehensive, enterprise-grade cloud services.
People-focused and familiar. People want the flexibility to work from anywhere with technology that is easy to use.
Comprehensive, connected, and flexible. One-off software decisions don’t make business sense in today’s world, as no business service works in isolation. For example, a mobile app can be tied into your financial and collaboration solutions, enabling users to take action with email or instant messaging tools right from within the app. A comprehensive cloud enables you to connect business services and user experiences in an agile way.
Enterprise-grade. Trust is a big concern for businesses using cloud services. Will your data and services be available when you need them? Will your confidential information be kept private?
