1. EASY ENTRANCE ON DATA ANALYTICS IN THE CLOUD
The trend of moving data into the cloud is growing and for good reasons. It is a faster, cost-effective, more flexible, and secure way of storing data than any on-premise solution. But keeping all these benefits in mind, we still notice ongoing resistance to cloud software. Customers are averse due to uncertainties about control, security, governance, and data migration.
Quite a notable fact, as on the other hand, we notice an increasing demand for flexibility and scalability in data storage – attributes that cloud storage easily manages. Jan Sipek, CEO at Climber, was asked what trends he sees in regards to SaaS and cloud solutions. “Today, customers are demanding a more direct relation between their usage and cost of the software. They don’t want to be forced to own hardware. Flexibility is a recurring demand, especially in regards to geographic boundaries.”.
Another important aspect of data storage and security is who stands responsible for it. At Climber, we’re noticing a shift in responsibility. Jan Sipek: “Demographics are changing, and the responsibility for data and analytics is moving towards management, rather than IT.” And for the management cases, full SaaS cloud solutions support this shift. Such a solution is MQS (Managed Qlik Services) – a service by Climber.
“We host and optimize the entire BI-environment in the cloud. MQS ensures that your BI-tools seamlessly integrate with your organization, everywhere and all the time.”, according to Sipek.
