The analogy between business and war is not a new one. CEOs have been known to quote The Art of War, The Book of Five Rings and On War for years. The reason is because there are strong parallels between the two. Your business has competitors trying to steal market share from you, and you have to defend yourself from losing clients the same way an army has to defend its homeland. At the same time, in order to grow you have to win new business by going on the offensive and either taking existing clients from the competition or landing new clients just entering the marketplace.
Business agility is the ability of your organization to be able to adapt quickly and effectively in an efficient manner to changes in the business environment.
If you’re looking at ways to make your organization more agile and faster to react to the marketplace then one solution to consider is cloud computing.
The more of your critical business intelligence you can store in a central location, which can be accessed from anywhere, the more easily you will be able to react to changes in the marketplace and grab an advantage over the competition.
