In the wake of COVID-19, cloud has emerged as the top business-critical technology. And all signs suggest that cloud technologies will be the driving force of the new economy. That is why, in this edition of Privately Speaking, we explain how cloud technologies are delivering value (and enhancing resilience) for private enterprises and how private company leaders can extract more value from their existing cloud strategy.

In the new reality that will emerge, competitive advantage will go to those that make the most effective use of diverse cloud-native ecosystems. For smaller, growing companies in particular, the shift to cloud technologies and ecosystems will be the key that unlocks a host of new internal and customer-facing opportunities.

In today’s operating environment, the leading companies understand that innovation and operations are now inextricably intertwined; you simply can’t do one without the other. To succeed in this environment, private companies must adopt a “cloud smart” approach that allows you to deliver on your vision and strategic objectives while creating the new virtual workplace of the future.

To be cloud smart, private companies leaders should consider these three questions:

  1. How do I lead an enterprise toward cloud-based transformation?
  2. How can I deliver operating model transformation?
  3. What will it take to align talent with change?

Discover the answers to these critical questions here.

Effective remote collaboration has become a mission-critical priority for companies looking to survive in today’s new reality. And cloud is the foundational element that enables that virtual work environment. It’s the platform where your company’s technologies and people converge to create value.
