Most enterprises were well on their way transitioning toward the cloud before the pandemic began, but the crisis has made cloud seem even more attractive than before. Cloud-based apps make it easy for employees to do their work whether they are at home or in the office, and cloud computing can also reduce the management burden on IT and help control costs.

"CIOs are under enormous pressure to put a cloud-first infrastructure in place that ensures business can continue as usual, regardless of where their employees are working," said Rich Weber, president and CPO at Panzura. "Businesses that have already adopted cloud services because it makes access to their servers and data more ubiquitous and extensible can easily plug-in solutions that allow for faster and easier remote working at scale. Those that have resisted the move will now be facing questions around how to move servers and applications to the compute cloud and how to get the data integrated into their cloud architecture."
