The new paradigm of the 21st century
Have you asked yourself why Cloud Computing is considered the new digital paradigm of the 21st century?
Organizations are increasingly more dependent on large information flows, so the demand for safer and faster environments is growing rapidly and exponentially. When the infrastructure that supports technology changes structurally, it is essential to understand this change in order to make strategic decisions about the future of a business or project.
Cloud Computing, on the other hand, responds to this need by accelerating the development and scalability of technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT) or Machine Learning, optimizing processes and assisting in strategic decision making.
83% of business workloads were moving to the cloud by the end of 2020.
Cloud technology is so reliable when it comes to security that 94% of businesses report significant improvements in online security after moving their data to the cloud.
Cloud computing is currently the most demanded technical skill, as half of the most promising jobs in 2019 required a good knowledge of this technology.
