The new paradigm of the 21st century
Why is Cloud Computing considered the new digital paradigm of the 21st century?
Organizations are increasingly more dependent on large information flows. The demand for safer and faster digital environments is growing exponentially. The infrastructure that supports technology has structurally shifted, and it is essential to understand this change in order to make strategic decisions about the futures of businesses and projects.
Cloud Computing responds to this need by accelerating the development and scalability of technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT), and Machine Learning, optimizing processes and assisting in strategic decision-making.
