How much would you say a plane ticket cost 60 years ago? Even if you don’t know the exact number, you’d guess a lot, right? Now,pretend that around the same period, your grandparents were fascinated by astronomy and wanted to fly over the clouds to contemplate their passion?They had to be financially privileged, no doubt. Or pilots ! But if neither situation happened during that period, your grandparents wish to fly over the clouds was probably a no- go.
Your business may have had no access to the clouds before either
Nowadays, companies are also looking for clouds, but in a much different context. Comparison may sound dull, but if you go back a decade, how accessible and what costs did such technology show ?
You’d likely say cloud computing was only affordable by enterprises, and if you were not one back then, your business was locked out of this environment, having to rely on on-premises servers to generate insights from data.
Today, no matter your company size, cloud computing can be an important asset to help you implement a company-wide data-driven culture in your operations. You don’t have to invest in expensive, outdated and complex hardware anymore. The use of as-a-service solutions to deploy cloud-based environments has been widely adopted.
But you need simplicity in cloud
Although the cloud computing environment is how many companies (perhaps this is your case as well) have had the possibility of investing in data for the first time, it creates more hurdles between raw data and insightful business-oriented decisions, as setting up in public clouds is as complex as setting up on-premise solutions. You require specialized personnel for each different cloud provider and software you’re trying to deploy, and also to integrate all of those systems. Then you have to maintain and update them, when needed. This means constant intervention, just to keep your data pipeline flowing.
This is sure to makes the establishment of a data-driven culture much harder and it can be a huge setback due to both technological or business requirements. It results in over budgeted, frustrating and never-ending projects.
