- What was the motivation behind the idea of developing such software?
Our motivation was multifold. We wanted to create a more secured embedded OS (Linux) to solve our customers ‘security’ and ‘vulnerability’ queries. We always brainstormed internally on how can we help our customers in ‘managing’ their end point devices better and keeping that in mind we built a user friendly ‘management software’ to reduce the technical manpower dependence of our customers. Also we got multiple queries from customers to build a software which could help increase their sales and hence we developed one (Digital Signage) for customers to utilize in-store branding to improve their sales, which is one of the use case scenarios of our product.
- How Cloud computing benefits individuals and MNC companies?
Cloud computing offers businesses more than just a way to safely store data, increase efficiency and reduce costs. It has substantial environmental benefits that are too many to ignore in an era where global warming and climate change are pressing issues. Cloud computing can save billions of dollars in energy costs and lessen carbon emissions by millions of metric tons. It not only helps businesses but also, helps in securing one’s personal information and support individual’s privacy. Remote working is an example of a business transformation that works on multiple levels. Cloud Computing serves the needs of individual employees, it provides businesses with new resilient and adaptive ways to engage with their ecosystem and deliver economic value, and it serves the larger community by addressing public health needs. With these mutually supportive returns, the rapid pivot to remote working demonstrates stakeholder capitalism in practice. The ongoing pandemic demonstrates how cloud computing has become essential in the modern world. Many of the conveniences and services available online are made possible by the cloud.
