The cloud creates new possibilities for companies, enabling them “to deliver value at pace.”
So says Digital BrainFest 2014 panelist Tim Hale, Managing Partner of Coastal Cloud, who also highlights how the cloud has advanced the ability of US-based technology consulting and development companies to compete with their offshore competitors by using the latest tools:
When it comes to the bottom line and competitive advantage, it’s not just about the hourly rate anymore – efficiency is now a key difference-maker, Hale explains:
The cycle time with which we can conceive, design, build and test solutions for [clients] is just lightning compared to what it used to be.
We’ve said before that digital transformation starts at the top. Businesses like Coastal Cloud, who fully embrace cloud technologies, will be the ones setting the pace for the rest of the digital world.
