Accelerating Digital Transformation Through Cloud-Based Connectivity

Cloud computing is gaining a huge adoption rate all over the world. Research by Sys Group shows 85% of businesses worldwide are already using cloud technology to store and manage information. In Indonesia alone, cloud investments are expected to reach over 1 billion USD with an annual growth rate of 11% between 2019 and 2025. The market is teeming with them and is only going to grow.

It begs the question: are Indonesian businesses ready to migrate to the cloud? The investors seem to think so, but with the pandemic happening, businesses are being cautious when it comes to huge investments including overhauling their connectivity to the cloud namely IoT Managed SD-WAN.

This article seeks to show you the reasons why adopting the cloud isn’t just a decision made during good times. When implemented as a business-technology, cloud-based connectivity can benefit you even now, in hard times. Here are some of the benefits:

1.Readily go to market

Companies connected in cloud-based IoT Managed SD-WAN can release new management rules across the network using end-to-end, automated, zero-touch provisioning. It allows the company to respond faster to market demands and quickly test new programs daily. This agility will help businesses adapt to changes faster, focus on meeting their customers’ needs, and thus grab the market at the right time.

2. Efficient Infrastructure

Adopting IoT Managed SD-WAN means businesses are eliminating the expensive, inflexible, failure-prone data centers, and consolidating everything into 1 cloud-based control center. Having fewer “pit stops” in the network reduces the risk of downtime due to technical reasons. Additionally, SD-WAN’s diverse transport from MPLS, Internet, 4G/LTE, to satellite allows for a high quality of service. While network segmentation allows for more efficient use of bandwidth.

3. Innovate faster 

IoT Managed SD-WAN’s ability to provide connectivity unconfined by data centers and cables makes it easy to diversify your business offerings. From free wifi for retail customers, gaming zone in coffee shops, to an online ordering system with real-time stock information for local customers. Businesses are also enabled to create monetized services based on the IoT Managed SD-WAN’s management platform. The choice to innovate is plenty.

4. Scale more efficiently

Since IoT Managed SD-WAN works through Telkomsel’s cellular network, deploying routers and setting up new locations can happen in a manner of minutes. During the COVID-19 pandemic, when a sudden massive shift to digital occurred, cloud-based connectivity can immediately scale out new services in seconds rather than weeks. It saves time, energy, and costs making businesses more flexible and resilient to changes.

Investing in cloud-based connectivity will yield business benefits that far outweigh the initial investment. Updating to Telkomsel IoT Managed SD-WAN allows your business to remain agile, flexible, innovative, and efficient even during hard times. Not only will you be able to weather the financial storms of the pandemic, but you might just gain a competitive edge in these times.
