Successful innovation using cutting edge technologies such as artificial intelligence, internet of things and predictive analytics requires more than just a good idea.
Provided the considerable hurdles of funding and buy in can be overcome, the proof of the innovation pudding really is in the scaling.
The answer to many scalability issues is cloud. Not only can the elasticity of cloud platforms ease the transition into production, but it can also help champions win the support of key business decision-makers via live demonstrations. Agile development on cloud platforms allows feedback to be quickly incorporated into the development cycle, and of course the cloud provides a global distribution software distribution platform.
In fact, it’s very hard to imagine a future tech billionaire who does not use cloud to a significant extent.
During this web seminar our expert panel will be looking at how cloud can support the various stages of innovation, what to look for at each stage, and how cloud is changing the way innovation happens.
