The pandemic forced many companies to cloud, even though some were hesitant. Now, many are making the move to cloud permanent because it lets them offer better products, services, and customer experiences–and it lets them leverage new tech like 5G and intelligent edge.

Cloud: it's now, and it's the future, too⁠–here's why

The pandemic has forced many companies to move to cloud just to survive. However, now that they’ve seen its benefits, most are staying put, and that’s a very, very good thing. In this episode, David Linthicum and guests, industry thought leader and author Dr. Shawn DuBravac and Deloitte’s Duncan Stewart, discuss why that is. Bottom line: cloud gives companies the technology and agility to offer better products and services, to create deeply customized customer experiences, and to gain a competitive edge. The trio also discusses cloud trends for the next decade and how companies are already augmenting their cloud ecosystems with enabling technologies, such as the intelligent edge and 5G.
