What is the cloud? Why is it important that your business consider migrating to the cloud? Is the cloud right for your business?


            Stage right – enter BDK Cloud.


            To put it simply, the cloud refers to off-site hosting that makes your software, data and files accessible to you on any device, anywhere in the world that has an internet connection.


            For many organizations, a move to the cloud is inevitable. According to the 2020 IDG Cloud Computing Study of 551 IT decision-makers across various industries, 92% of organizations total IT environment is at least somewhat in the cloud today. These organizations include industries like education, healthcare, manufacturing, financial services and government/non-profit. Another study done by LogicMonitor on ‘business continuity in the face of unexpected crises’ claims that 87% of global IT decision-makers agree that COVID-19 is pushing organizations to accelerate cloud migrations with organizations shifting to work-from-home work environments. The cloud allows small to large companies to operate remotely while also keeping up with never-ending modernization in the digital world. Now, more than ever, IT choices and infrastructure matter. Solving business problems while minimizing the need for high level of technical expertise within their staff is fast becoming the focus of all companies. Companies that thrive in the next two years, will be the ones that modernize now.
