Becoming a cloud-first company: Can you afford not to?

Some companies are still reluctant to take the leap into being a cloud-first organization, despite the plethora of information about cloud's benefits. The issue is often the lack of ability to square perceived risks with the business value of digital transformation. In this episode of the podcast, David Linthicum sits down with Deloitte's Basit Saeed and Chad Montgomery to discuss why it's a great time to become cloud-first (even for Deloitte), the benefits companies can expect, and how those benefits outweigh the risks. The upshot? A cloud-first strategy makes you more agile and it gives your business the scalability, resiliency, and continuity capabilities you need to meet any situation–even a pandemic–head on with confidence.
