When I am working with clients, I am often asked the question “Why would you run SAP in the cloud?” Since this is so common, I decided to write a blog post answering this question and outlining the benefits cloud can provide.
When I started working in hospitality, clouds were only in the sky and architects designed hotels. I never imagined that my experience with food service, event planning and security would help me explain some of the most important concepts in cloud computing.
I was excited when cloud computing kicked off. Suddenly, the IT world and industries started talking about the future and moving their IT systems and business data into these highly automated, highly standardized, flexible and optimized IT environments.
Organizations today likely face the same challenges as many of our large complex accounts. Specifically, they would like to be in a position to anticipate market changes and shifts in customer sentiments or preferences while continuing to not only outpace the competition, but also disruptions in their space.
