We are starting to see the next wave of cloud 2.0. The previous focus on technology and solutions has shifted to a more fundamental transformational view of developing the business and implementing cloud-based core systems. Across industries, the focus is on time-to-market in relation to new customer-facing services. Our objective at the Nordic Cloud unit will be to highlight how cloud transformation can ensure business development and drive growth in even the largest of organizations”.
