Digital Technologies & Cloud Computing
How digital technology likely to change our lives
Digital engagements are delivering value on several levels. Here is the progression of changes JVT promises to deliver:
- Increased efficiency and energy savings, as manual, duplicated or calcified processes are replaced with software-defined and analytics-driven processes.
- Increased market responsiveness, with businesses able to respond to consumer demand through social media, and anticipate future trends through analytics.
- Higher levels of collaboration, as members of organizations are able to work together and share information with each other almost instantaneously, as well as with customers.
- Greater innovation, as businesses have greater access to pools of knowledge and resources outside their walls.
What’s key about digital is that it is far more than simply automating and optimizing processes — which is merely the first step.
What is the cloud? Where is the cloud? Are JVT in the cloud now? cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer's hard drive.
The cloud is just a metaphor for the Internet.
What cloud computing is not about is your hard drive. When you store data on or run programs from the hard drive, that's called local storage and computing. Everything you need is physically close to you, which means accessing your data is fast and easy, for that one computer, or others on the local network.
The cloud is also not about having a dedicated network attached storage (NAS) hardware or server in residence.
Storing data on a home or office network does not count as utilizing the cloud. (However, some NAS will let you remotely access things over the Internet )
Consumer vs. Business
cloud computing as it impacts individual consumers—those of us who sit back at home or in small-to-medium offices and use the Internet on a regular basis.
There is an entirely different "cloud" when it comes to business. Some businesses choose to implement Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), where the business subscribes to an application it accesses over the Internet. (Think Salesforce.com.) There's also Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), where a business can create its own custom applications for use by all in the company. And don't forget the mighty Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), where players like Amazon, Microsoft, Google.
Benefits of Cloud Computing
Upgrade or downgrade your package as per your requirements. You don’t need to change the whole device here. Resources are available, take as much as you need and pay for the same. No downtime or time lapse.
Dedicated resources- In a cloud environment, you are given dedicated resources, the system ensures that only you get the resources. Sharing of CPU or memory doesn’t happen in a Cloud environment.
Security benefits of Cloud- As every cloud user gets an isolated environment, this ensures the security problems will be isolated to a user only rather than spreading to others which generally happens in a shared environment. Furthermore the separate devices prevents the chances single point of failure.
Big Data, in the age of the customer
Emerging technologies says business are thinking about increasing digital engagement with customers who are constantly addressable through the internet, connecting via multiple devices and in multiple locations.
The Beginning of the digital technology
For who embrace digital technology, however, there is a potentially glittering future ahead. “There is a real opportunity to secure your career and flourish. It's still all about leadership,” JVT .
