What is the opportunity for you?


The rise of the cloud applications


Millennials will comprise at least 50% of the workforce by 2020. They are changing the way we do business. Flexibility is becoming the most crucial aspect of work nowadays and the typical 9 to 5 day is no more. This leads to the rise of cloud-based applications enabling a mobile-first world. Research shows that the number of applications used within SMBs is set to grow to 7 on average from 3 within the following years.


Projects are executed differently


The agile way of working inspires greater inter-team collaboration. The cloud apps aim to empower the digital transformation making working together easier, quicker and from multiple devices. In order to make data accessible like this, it is stored on the cloud. It has been projected that by the end of this year, more than 80% of business will rely on hosted solutions for the majority of their business operations.


Security


Accessing company information from different points can create holes in your security and endanger customer data. To ensure compliance, business owners need to consider how they can safeguard the devices they and their employees use.


Recent studies show that 39% of people have downloaded malware onto a mobile device, while 10 million are lost every year in the UK alone.


At the same time, the number of people using their own tech or working remotely is growing, leaving companies vulnerable to cyber-attacks.
