The cloud advantage
Finally, CIOs at CGR companies report that a top priority in the next year is building a development, security, operations, and governance infrastructure in the cloud. This makes sense because CGR companies tend to have tight margins, and one of the biggest draws to shifting to the cloud is the cost savings it provides, not to mention increased flexibility and its on-demand nature.
CGR companies are giving up on-premises infrastructures in favor of cloud technology. Why? The old way meant companies needed a server on location and relied on hard disks that often ran out of space. With cloud technology, there's no danger of running out of disk space: providers automatically give you more when you need it. And when volumes go down after Christmas, for example, space automatically frees up, saving companies money during slower seasons. This offers increased agility and less time spent managing space.
Managing cybersecurity is less of a burden too because providers, whether it's Google, Amazon, or someone else, already have those safeguards built into their cloud product.
