Driving Enterprise Growth Through Agile Infrastructure Webinar
Whether to increase flexibility or scalability, make better use of data and analytics, or accelerate digital transformation, many organizations are trying to grow their enterprises by investing in the cloud. Nearly three-fourths (73%) of respondents to a recent survey conducted by Harvard Business Review Analytic Services report their organizations are migrating their enterprise technology infrastructure and platforms to the cloud. Attitudes about technology infrastructure suggest that cloud is critical to both their current operations and the future success of their businesses.
Respondents’ motivations for investing in the cloud are largely reflected in the benefits they most hope to realize: one-half cited increased scalability/flexibility, the most often selected answer, followed by the ability to make better use of data and reliability/availability of systems. Acceleration of digital transformation initiatives, chosen by one-third of respondents, ranked closely behind, followed by improved security, reduction of technology costs, fewer resources needed for technology operations and maintenance, and application mobility.
In an HBR-Analytic Services video webinar, Todd Pruzan, HBR’s senior editor for research and special projects, moderated a discussion based on the findings from AWS’s recent HBR-AS Pulse Survey with Alex Clemente, managing director of HBR-AS. Alex Clemente shared results from this recent HBR-AS survey about how enterprise growth can be achieved through more agile infrastructure.
He then joined a discussion on best practices of business enterprise leaders as well as recommended approaches to leading change, with Chris Nims, SVP of Cloud & Productivity Engineering at Capital One.
