They are one of the most traditional industry in the world and the recent demand for faster and efficient services from consumers they are seeking cloud solutions, manufacturing, and financial. The ever-increasing demand that is all set to harness the digital and tech-centric world. Manufacturing and financial sectors are looking to harness the digital technology and transform their business, these major industries that are powerhouses driving business operation are still far from getting in the flashy world of cloud computing. Despite the slow adoption of cloud for the manufacturing and financial industry, many major verticals such as medical, media, and entertainment have ventured in the cloud computing technology. Such industry verticals have found creative ways that are all set to adopt for the business operation.
Manufacturing and financial sector businesses have to fight when they ought to be relevant in today’s business transformation. They hold a major global market and each day face steep competition from both the legacy technology that has stayed relevant for many years and other technologies that are still upcoming. Business leaders are faced with daily challenge wherein they have decided whether the given technology will be incubating their operations or giving revenue goals. Cloud-based solutions assist in alleviating the challenges that come with large scale digital transformation with avoiding redundancy that might occur in demand sectors of live data. The expectation of being more efficient, deliver consumer-centric services together with an influx of new competitions that are focusing on larger consumer segment with easier options. Most of the finance sector companies have added the significant amount of money to cloud solutions, with manufacturing sector catching using the technology coverage for logistics in technology support. With an analysis of more than a billion dollars spending between 2018-19 showed that financial and manufacturing sector has invested in exponential level when it comes to spending. Since crossing, the major roadblock of cloud adoption, manufacturing, and financial services enterprises see the benefits and strategies to meet the growing demand of the global technology-driven market. The challenge, however, is with the global technology that is futuristic and keeping it tightly managed without stifling innovation can cause unchecked spend, security risks and lack of visibility that derail the cloud journey that could be so successful with innovation. Here are two prime examples.
1. Cox Automotive relies on the public cloud to take advantage of scale and economies. It enables the businesses to be agile and tests new ideas with limited investments, by consolidating the data centers and leveraging AWS that will effectively enable with improved focus on services, products, and clients.
2. Intuit, a financial software leader, hasn’t led any cloud complexity to get in the way of its mission to power cloud mission throughout the world. The company is all set to optimize and automate its cloud spending by avoiding the manual processes that can be error-prone and labor intensive.
Cox Automotive and Intuit both enterprises have found creative ways that are all set to drive the accountability and avoid cost rise through more careful management of their cloud environment. The cloud solutions are making them achieve the objective that is set to bring more businesses to the cloud first place with adding agility, innovation, and competitive advantage. The growth in cloud technology has enabled financial and manufacturing services to be viable across the globe that can be availed anytime and anywhere. There are currently three key areas in the public cloud that are seeing faster adoption rate-containers, serverless, and machine learning. Each of these provides the businesses ability to improve the bottom line; for instance, containers can reduce the overhead costs significantly and adding the increase in flexibility. Containers can run virtually anything, anywhere from the branch to the data center to the public cloud across virtual machines. It assists the companies in moving fast, deploys software efficiently and operates at an unprecedented scale. The application of containers provides the user with ability and agility to improve the application delivery reduce costs making it more strategic along with long term investment. If we analyze the data collected for cloud adoption, we found that both the industries have increased their spending on containers by almost 37 percent. Cloud technology is making the financial and manufacturing sector access the advanced analytics and deeper insights into data. That enables in developing cost-effective solutions and innovative strategies, as financial companies have increased their spend on analytics by more than 2X with top business activities like faster reporting, deeper analytics, and better insights.
Serverless has created the biggest impact when it comes to bringing financial technology. According to a recent study in cloud technology, there has been a 3x increase in serverless spending for both financial and manufacturing sector over last year. Financial services have significantly been impacted with the growing value that provides the largest benefits of serverless technology that can offer companies with an ability to map higher scalability with responsive and strong differentiation. Serverless provides the required agility for enterprises that can create their own applications for quicker response to the public. Bringing Fintech in the sector of traditional banking can be a challenge when resources cost could be high enough. Pay Services from digital banking companies, traditional banking, and tech giants that provide payment modes such as Google, Amazon, and Apple are seeing exponentially rise. For traditional manufacturing sector that is significantly moving towards automation, serverless technology is an ideal technology that is all set power edge computing and IoT devices. Having networking coverage over large space can be a challenge; however, with serverless functions can trigger basic actions such as record information, turn on a code or message a user.
Cloud computing technology has significantly changed the way businesses functions; it makes analytics and increases access to technology. All small enterprises to large enterprises are adopting some form of cloud technology that gives them business strategy providing them with agility, insight, and speed. For businesses to move beyond significant legacy technology, they will need detail their requirements and strategies the cloud offering.
