How cloud can help maintain business continuity in times of crisis
It goes without saying that, in this COVID-19 pandemic, the most critical thing is to keep yourself and your employees safe. However, business must go on. Organizations that have migrated to cloud are able to benefit from its elasticity, which enables them to scale to use only those resources they need now and scale up later, when the economy ramps up. In this episode, David Linthicum and guest, Dana Gardner—president and principal analyst at Interarbor Solutions—discuss how the cloud can help organizations maintain business continuity and why now is a good time to consider a rapid vs. a panic move to cloud.
One of the keys right now is elasticity, being able to scale down, but also knowing very well that you're going to have to scale back up and that you're going to have to keep people functioning but without losing the opportunity to be innovative.Dana Gardner is president and principal analyst at Interarbor Solutions, an enterprise IT analysis, market research, and consulting firm.
