This entails the need for technologies that enhance digital customer experience to effectively cater to today’s rapidly changing digital marketplace. One of these technologies is the cloud platform. We’ve also noted that adaptive security and compliance should be among the top priorities of enterprises for digital transformation. With cloud adoption, companies have resolved most of their concerns, including security, and have also empowered employees to innovate and deliver custom solutions much faster than ever before, allowing early adopters to gain the lead in this digital transformation race. In a report by Harvard Business Review (HBR), 84% of the enterprises they surveyed said that their use of the cloud has increased and that more than a third of these companies reported increased revenues, profit margins, and data security as a result of deploying the cloud.
