The Implications Of A ‘Cloud-First’ Strategy

Co-Founder, COO at Komprise, creating Intelligent Data Management for enterprises to manage data growth and harness data value across clouds.

The cloud is increasingly seen as a key IT strategy for businesses, as over 90% of enterprises are shifting to a multi-cloud strategy, according to a study by The 451 Group. Not only are businesses adopting the cloud more, they are also increasing their use of cloud resources by shifting from a “cloud transformation” strategy to a “cloud-first” strategy.

According to Salesforce, 54% of customers think that businesses need to change the way they engage. But what should they change and, more importantly, how?

When I was 27 years old, I started my first small business, a sunglass retail store called Sunglasses Only.
