Using the cloud as a platform for digital transformation

The growing importance of machine-learning, IOT, and data analysis on the digital transformation strategies of organisations require, a foundation built on cloud computing. After all, not many companies can afford the resources required to harness this innovation on-premise.
Fortunately, the contact centre industry has been embracing the shift to the cloud. Thanks to evolving technology making the transition to the cloud more user-friendly and efficient, organisations are looking at ways to capitalise on it.
With the contact industry generating a significant amount of data, industries have no choice but to leverage the cloud to gain more measurable insights that empower them to deliver demonstrable results. Data has often been cited as the 'oil' of the digital world, and the imminent arrival of multi-national data centres in the country, will reinforce this.
Customers demand fresh approaches to how their data is analysed especially when it comes to contact centres. The competitive environment means solutions and service levels need to be adapted to suit diverse customer needs. Using the cloud as platform, this can be done in a more timeous fashion and embolden organisations to more organically revise their digital transformation strategies.
Bringing a view on embracing return on Investment, and the transition to cloud with a international and local view and the future outlook.
The cloud is here to stay, how businesses use it will be up to them.
