According to a recent report by Deloitte, cloud computing will be a highly relevant technology in the “next normal.” This information comes from the Save-to-Thrive: Enterprise Transformation and Performance Improvement Strategies During the COVID-19 Pandemic report, which details the proper cost management and enterprise transformation efforts during this global pandemic. The findings show that alongside cybersecurity, cloud computing will be an essential technology for businesses to continue to thrive in a post-COVID world.
Deloitte’s report introduces the concept of the next normal — a set of business practices that every enterprise should follow after the COVID-19 pandemic. The next normal takes inspiration from the current new normal that was formed from emergency reactions and response to the coronavirus. To help create a new set of recommended practices and tools, Deloitte examined the technologies that will be most relevant to companies in the future.
The two most relevant technologies for businesses in the next normal are cybersecurity and cloud computing. When asked about which technologies would be most relevant to them in the future, both cybersecurity and cloud computing received an 80 percent positive response. This confirms that users want a secure business cloud deployment that allows users to access data safely from anywhere in the world.
In the company’s press release, Deloitte’s global consulting leader Sam Balaji stated: “Our 2020 Global Cost and Enterprise Transformation survey shows how organizations that strategically pursue cost reduction in the wake of COVID-19, while concurrently reimagining the enterprise and transforming work and business models, can be more successful in the Next Normal. Investing in critical technology capabilities such as cloud and digital can increase business agility, improve competitiveness and better prepare organizations to persevere, and position them well for the post-COVID environment.”
