Cloud is the enabler and foundation tying together all the ingredients of Intelligent
Operations. Cloud facilitates better integration of diverse data and can scale up and
down as needed.
However, a crucial bottleneck hampers enterprises' embrace of the cloud: 49 percent
of respondents have more than 50 percent legacy technology across all enterprise
functions, which represents a substantial investment. The belief that they have a
certain degree of legacy "technology debt" they have to repay dissuades many
enterprises from leveraging the power of the cloud.
The good news is that companies are figuring out ways to replace or modernize their
legacy technology. Forward-thinking enterprises realize that many past investments in
technology platforms and services have now become redundant with the availability of
as-a service offerings that negate the need for major future technology investments.
By leveraging the power of the cloud, companies can enjoy significant cost and speedto-market advantages
in a secure environment-and not be held back by poor
technology and large back-office teams.
