Business in the cloud
Creating Synergies through Shared Services and the Cloud
Over the last 3-4 years, global organisations have been adopting cloud computing initiatives and shared services programs as a means of managing scale and efficiency as well as dealing with the complexity and variances of recent business cycles.
We looked at the underlying drivers behind adoption of cloud computing and shared services and saw that there was much commonality to be found:
- Flexibility and Pay-as-you-go
- Economies of Scale
- Easy and seamless deployment
- Simplification of organisational structures
How can Deloitte help:
We believe that both cloud computing platforms and shared services are excellent levers of change. They are aligned to current market trends and changing behavior of consumers. Both programs require careful planning and strong change management amongst employees. However if implemented well, they allow long-term, sustainable and effective management of bottom line costs and processes.
