A global pandemic has fundamentally changed human behavior. Where we go, the products we consume, how we consume them, the supply chains that deliver them and the way we work and interact with each other has all been altered. To suit stay-at-home and quarantine orders, reliance on digital means has increased dramatically. As of April 2020, Pew Research Center reports that roughly half of surveyed U.S. adults (53 percent) say the internet has been essential for them during the pandemic, while other reports observe that compared to March 2019, the daily average in-home data usage has increased by 38 percent in March 2020. Naturally, as a result of this disruption and increased virtual dependence, businesses and their digital transformations have become hyper accelerated.
Redefining the future of how and where work gets done through a newly remote workforce has meant that large corporations are shifting toward Artificial Intelligence (AI) for business automation processes and insights and increasing their focus on constructing the enterprise cloud as a business platform. These two trends are tightly interrelated, in that AI-driven businesses motivate enterprise cloud adoption. Yet, at the core of cloud is one key process: governance. The policies and procedures through which the cloud is operated can be the difference between cloud success and failure, and in this era of disruption, it can be the difference between keeping ahead of the curve and getting left behind entirely.
The enterprise cloud is the future of not just corporate computing, but corporate survival, offering speed, agility, AI, business continuity, disaster recovery and beyond. In short, the enterprise cloud is the solution to the post-COVID-19 new normal, and in order to meet the needs of the new normal, a cloud driven by automated governance is key.
