If you pay attention to advertising, bloggers, or business news, you’ve likely heard plenty about the cloud. Cloud computing is ubiquitous … it’s making business and personal collaborations easier, faster, and cheaper. As consumers, we’re taking advantage of cloud services for sharing and storing personal documents, photos, entertainment, travel plans, and music via services from DropBox, TripIt, Apple, and Google.
Companies large and small are increasing relying on cloud services to power their businesses to operate with greater agility while saving on IT costs and infrastructure. At SAP, we’re proud to have built the cloud that’s built for business. It’s a cloud that offers flexibility so businesses can run the right combination of solutions within their enterprise without disrupting existing IT investments. And it enables businesses and their employees to connect, collaborate, and innovate from anywhere.
As cloud enthusiasts, we’re kicking off a series of conversations around how people are leveraging the cloud to collaborate better, share smarter, and innovate faster.
We’d like to know … what’s in your cloud?
- Is it employee resources that empower better collaboration and knowledge management?
- Is it data that helps you provide a more personalize experience for your customers?
- Is it applications that give sales teams’ easier access to information and tools to close deals quicker?
- It is personal tools that enable you to share memories and experiences with family and friends?
- Or something else?

For inspiration, consider the story of Societe de Transport de Montreal (STM) and its customer loyalty program. In STM’s cloud, you’ll find big data, collaboration, and precision marketing. The public transportation provider delivers customized information about local entertainment and cultural activities that match passengers’ interests and location via a mobile app that’s both rewarding and fun.
