The World Bank expects Thailand’s economy to revert to pre-pandemic levels towards the end of 2022. As in past years, tourism and consumer consumption are still likely to drive the projected 3.2% GDP growth rate. Though the drivers remain the same, the significant change in consumer and workforce behaviour and preferences brought on by the pandemic will continue to accelerate the rapid and disruptive digital shift across sectors. Post pandemic adjustments will be particularly challenging, but modern computing technology applications and infrastructure can ease the journey considerably.
The hybrid work model is increasingly becoming the new standard as both the private and public sectors scale up and transition their operations online. Fluctuations in supply and demand continue to persist as activities revert to pre-pandemic levels. In this scenario, all organisations are looking for the right balance, strategy and tactics to meet expectations and thrive in the new normal.
The future always pointed to digitalisation, and the COVID-19 pandemic just hastened the transformation required of everyone. If anyone was taking baby steps towards this direction pre-pandemic, these quickly turned to giant leaps in March 2020. But the significant advantage went to the cloud computing’s early adapters, as seen in how they flourished and continued operations without slowing down even when the world roiled in uncertainty back in 2020.
Moving forward, a hybrid multi-cloud strategy offers the rapid elasticity required to provide dynamic solutions for varying demands from all sectors. It seamlessly provides on-demand software applications, data storage, back-up and recovery, data analysis and application testing that will quickly catapult organisations to greater flexibility and efficiency as all sectors scale up their operations and services to their citizens.
Applications became increasingly distributed in nature. Container engines spin up and down the microservices of applications. This myriad of services across agencies and geographies will work better when interconnected on-premise and multi-cloud facilities are combined.
Every cloud has its characteristic strengths to take advantage of and drawbacks to manage. The use of the hybrid multi-cloud strategy ensures favourable outcomes because each provider augments and strengthens the other. It also gives peace of mind to organisations as this strategy lessens dependence on any provider. The result is greater leverage in negotiations with providers, the ability to change systems on a modular level and offers greater flexibility.
Keeping data on the cloud provides versatility to support a remote workforce. Employees have seamless on-demand access to data wherever they may be. The strategy also keeps hyper-vigilant security officers protected in the knowledge that they have the option to keep sensitive files in onsite storage.
Work, business and life are never stagnant and rarely steady. A hybrid multi-cloud strategy allows for dynamic vertical scaling as needed and provides elasticity that ultimately prevents system overloading and overprovisioning. Huge capital outlays will be a thing of the past as this strategy empowers the organisation to seize opportunities and maintain its competitive edge.
Being on the cloud allows an organisation to change direction as needed. The beauty of it all is that old and new technologies can merge, allowing the organisation to maximise its resources.
The disruptive shift that transformed companies is here to stay. However, the disruptive trajectory that promises to catapult Thailand’s economy even beyond pre-pandemic levels will require the public sector to join hands with the private sector in this new path. The public sector has a crucial role in leading the way, maintaining and sustaining inclusive development.
Organisations eliminate the need for constant upgrading of individual computer hardware and software. User experience enhances the application performance and makes cloud delivery more efficient in the long run.
