In today’s hyper-connected, digital-first world, agile technology and operations are more than just buzzwords; they are the bedrock of thriving businesses.
As enterprises leap forward to global ventures, entering the emerging markets in fast-growing regions like APAC, MENA and LATAM is no small feat and more than just a smart move. These growing economies offer untapped consumer bases and potential first-mover advantage; opportunities that tend to be scarcer in the mature or saturated cloud-advanced markets. Despite that, the emerging markets don’t offer easy entry. Global enterprises in their home markets are likely to have grown accustomed to the reliability and speed of top-tier cloud services. But attempting to mirror this seamless experience in APAC, MENA or LATAM will reveal challenges like lack in expertise, no local resources and underperforming connectivity.
It’s not easy or cheap to address these issues. Yet, not doing so would undermine the scalability, operational resilience and performance consistency that have by now become the enterprise’s standard.
The call of the hour is for a team who is resourced, and understands how to bridge the gap between global expectations and local nuances. Above all, the following requirements are key to the cloud strategies:
• Simple, innovative and agile operations
• Presence in emerging markets
• Access to global players
• Knowhow and production of digital solutions
To deploy effective cloud services in these complex landscapes, enterprises don’t just need a cloud provider, they need an intelligent cloud partner. An alignment with true global agility requires that the deployed solution is not one-size-fits-all but uses key local resources with advanced cloud and connectivity technologies.
Enterprises will find it more suitable to deploy solutions that efficiently weave resources and cloud technologies in the right places that provide global-standard connectivity, consistent performance and operational agility an enterprise expects.
