The future is what most businesses set their eyes on. Across industries, having longevity is a unifying company ideal. The organizations that earn the greatest respect and most loyal clientele tend to have reputations that are strengthened by the credibility time affords. Therefore, it makes sense that businesses are always looking for ways to enhance operations, increase output and last longer. According to industry insider Mark Keepax, one way they can do that is by building a solid enterprise cloud infrastructure.

Enterprise cloud is the key to business now and in the future
As Keepax points out, the company IT landscape is changing. IT means something very different now than it did even 10 years ago. Back then, IT work involved the maintenance of an internal company storage platform – something that lacked mobility and had limited storage space. That was then. But now, the cloud has arrived on the scene, and it is radically changing the way business IT operates, pushing businesses headfirst into a future of cloud computing.

However, in order for companies to truly realize their potential in the cloud, they cannot merely rely on any cloud service provider. Indeed, a business' choice of cloud service is far from an arbitrary one. Making the right decision can witness a company transitioning seamlessly to the cloud, while choosing an unsuitable cloud can conversely leave businesses floundering.

With proliferation of cloud platforms, enterprise cloud provides organizational efficiency
The cloud is indisputably a wonderful resource for businesses, but without the proper organizational infrastructure, it can quickly become more confusing than beneficial. That is something Keepax acknowledges, writing that companies that do not land in properly managed clouds can find their IT departments swamped with problems, and soon bemoaning the complexity of cloud operations.

But such complexity and confusion is far more likely to be found in the public cloud, whose open structure and lack of organization can create an unmanageable situation for company IT departments. According to Business​Cloud News, this "cloud sprawl" is increasingly Fortunately, the potential confusion of the public cloud is corrected in the enterprise cloud, which is why so many businesses are migrating there. The enterprise cloud provides a place that ensures security, ease of operations, and, perhaps most importantly, control.

When companies use the public cloud, they relinquish administrative control over their information, which can lead to a feeling of powerlessness. In the event of a public cloud outage, for instance, the organization can lose access to its data. In contrast, the keys to the enterprise cloud always lie with the business, not the cloud service provider.
