Advantages of using IBM Cloud in business
The improvements in cloud storage are widely known. However, modern business is evolving extremely fast. That is why it is so important to use IT tools that will not so much keep up with these changes, but will also allow you to develop a real competitive advantage.
Let’s start with simple questions
You are an entrepreneur focused on the development of your business. What do you associate with the term cloud? We know from experience that usually the most intuitive answer is: infrastructure, a good place to move the company’s servers. The advantage of the cloud is the lack of the need to incur hardware costs at the very beginning, shifting costs from capex to opex. Anything else? Here, it is usually more difficult for entrepreneurs to give specific answers.
The strong dissemination of cloud solutions motivates to expand the product offer. As a customer, you have the right to expect more from the cloud. Why? Because the IBM Cloud platform is not only infrastructure, it is great opportunities.
