Sajith Kumar, the General Manager for Enterprise at Cloud Box Technologies, speaks about how tech is shaping the infrastructure of tomorrow
Which products and solutions do you offer for today’s workplace?
In today’s digital and distributed work culture, organizations want to adapt faster to a cloud-based business operation which is easy to deploy and be in a position to manage business and work from anywhere and anytime. This has allowed companies to reach out across the globe and enabled businesses to flourish faster. But such a work environment also comes with increased security challenges. And this has guided us to ensure that we are focused on Cloud and Security offerings and have specialized and dedicated teams working with our customers.
How do you think technology today helps businesses grow?
Without a doubt, businesses across all categories are relying more and more on technology to help them navigate into highly competitive markets where speed, productivity, efficiency, and cost implications are some of the defining factors. Technology is able to provide seamless collaboration between employees, customers, supply chain, etc. Additionally, customer demands are getting higher and businesses are working hard towards providing much better customer experiences. And to achieve all of this they must also be well aware of advancements in technology as well as be up to speed with technology upgrades.
How is tech driving our economic recovery?
The present-day Covid-crisis gives us the opportunity to rethink strategies, which has put the world on an economic slowdown with increased income inequality and increased unemployment. This is pushing organizations to increase productivity while doing more with less. We have seen that technology has played an important role in keeping our economies and social functioning during the pandemic, and, it can play an even bigger role in driving sustainable economic growth.
I believe in order to achieve faster recovery, every economy should adopt more on leveraging the latest technologies and innovations. Organizations are investing in digital resources which are helping them reach higher levels of efficiency and achieving higher ROI.
How is tech shaping the infrastructure of tomorrow?
The conventional approach to infrastructure design, where the focus has been limited by the number of resources available to solve a design problem, is moving away. The resources available with vast amounts of computing power there are many emerging technologies such as 3D printing, AI, and Data Science which are changing the way we design modern infrastructure. We are already seeing a shift towards outcomes-based design, where technology will enable the possibility of exploring designs with thousands of permutations and combinations of design across multiple infrastructures to achieve the most appropriate outcome.
