The Rapid Acceptance of Cloud-Based Technology

It has taken a number of years for the concept of cloud technology to gain traction in the business world. But now with more and more companies releasing new cloud products to the market, including Microsoft’s first cloud multi-tenant true Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) product (Dynamics 365), we are seeing a shift in acceptance. President and CEO, Ron Rand, was recently invited on the latest Texas Business Radio episode to talk about cloud-based technology and the rapidly accelerating pace of adoption, usage, and movement to the cloud.

In the recorded video below, Ron discusses why we have seen an enormous shift in momentum over the last 6 to 12 months and what the widespread of cloud means for businesses moving forward. Here is a taste of what he has to say in this episode:

“I don’t think it’s going to happen overnight. The advancements that we’ve seen in the last few months, from the launch of Dynamics 365 to Oracle’s $9 billion acquisition of cloud innovator, NetSuite, is just the end of the beginning. We’re still talking about a 10-year journey before all apps, all businesses are so ubiquitous of the business landscape that we don’t talk about cloud anymore, it’s just the way it’s done.”

The latest segment was aired on May 27th, 2017 and is sponsored by Texas CEO Magazine.
