Cloud-first mindset

With the worldwide spending on public cloud at $210 billion, 1 companies are responding with increased speed to leverage cloud as an easy solution to help drive digital transformation and collaboration across the business. However, a cloud-first one-size-fits-all technology strategy doesn’t work for all businesses.
