Integrating Ideal Enterprise Data & Cloud Management Strategies: Choosing Optimal Technology and Investment Framework
Cloud and data technologies have come a long way. More than technology deployment, the journey is towards choosing ideal technology and investment for expected outcomes and addition and value creation. This selection process is placing challenges on C-suites to innovate fast, improve cost efficiency and find new ways of value creation.
In the transition of data-driven to data-centric organizations, C-suites are becoming more collaborative in selecting appropriate cloud technologies. A business vision with diversification and expansion plans in short to medium term is the need of the hour to invest into technology and resources.
As the global big data and analytics market size is expected to cross USD 186 billion and public cloud service market exceeding USD 200 billion in 2019, there are a few shifts in business models of data centers. Enterprises work with technology providers as consultants and partners in jointly developing new backend and frontend connections and in promoting new offering to customers.
Data generation is peaking in the region and cloud service providers are offering multiplicity of servicing and flexibility in pricing, allowing organizations to focus on addressing customized solutions to business challenges.
This necessitates striking a right balance in investment, ideal technology and at what ROI.
At Data & Cloud Tech Summit 2019, you will be presented with practical insights on smart decisions for ideal technology investments, helping you to strike the right balance between insourcing and outsourcing.
