Why the Cloud is the Fastest Path to Flexible OperationsIt’s no secret that timely insights about what’s happening across the business can help to dramatically improve operational flexibility and efficiency in manufacturing organizations. Hence the constant buzz about the Internet of things (IoT) and cutting-edge solutions designed to continually share data and optimize operations. No doubt these new solutions sound great for organizations with piles of extra cash laying around. But what if you’re concerned about improving operational flexibility in the face of marketplace volatility and you don’t have millions to spend year over year on new technologies?

With all the innovative solutions and technology that are available nowadays, it’s easy to get caught up in the hype of a trend. Ultimately, what’s important is ensuring you can quickly collect and analyze the right data for the goals you are trying to accomplish — and use it to make rapid, informed decisions.

At the end of the day, every manufacturer today needs to be prepared to respond quickly to market volatility. Fortunately, solution providers are coming up with very cost-effective ways to do that in the Cloud through data integration and well-designed processes. That’s why, if you’re looking for cloud-based software options, such as Dploy Solutions, for keeping business goals on track (every day, week, month and year) and increasing your competitive edge, it’s important to explore the right cloud-based options for your operations.
