Are you on Cloud yet?

Cloud has never been so important as during the global pandemic. The COVID-19 has sealed the deal with what cloud services have to offer. As per Gartner report, worldwide cloud spending will be around 14% of the enterprise IT spending by 2024 and almost 70% of organizations which are already using cloud services today plan to increase their cloud spending in the wake of the disruption caused by COVID-19.

If you are an organization which is planning to embark on your cloud adoption journey, please join me in knowing what it takes to be cloud-ready (no sales pitch, just honest opinion) and to do it in a cloud-smart way.
