COVID Pushes the Cloud to an Enterprise Standard

On this MarketScale TV interview, Voice of B2B Daniel Litwin joins John Ezzell, co-founder and EVP of BIAS Corp., for a discussion around COVID’s impact on cloud technology adoption, and what has pushed the cloud from a differentiator to a standard.

New research out of IDC points to the expansion of the cloud market, reaching $1 trillion in value by 2024, and that by the end of 2021, most businesses will be on the transition path to cloud infrastructure. Even without this context, over the last year COVID has forced more businesses to build a competent digital presence, and cloud infrastructure has filled that role.

Ezzell, a former director at Oracle, shares how Oracle cloud technologies have grown as solutions and in their uses, breaking down how retail & QSR, which shifted heavily to online ordering & fulfillment infrastructure during COVID, have maximized cloud deployments, and what other businesses can learn from their strategies. Beyond that, Ezzell gives context on how edge compute technologies are supporting the cloud, how to maneuver the CapEx cost, and what differentiates a user-centric deployment.
