There’s no doubt that cloud technology is here to stay, but what are the projections for the use of digital technology and cloud solutions in 2018? Let’s take a look at a breakdown of what’s coming in the next 12 months, and how the cloud will impact your business.

Key Areas of Impact

New advancements in cloud technologies will impact a number of pivotal business areas, but the most affected will be:

  • Data and document security
  • Workflow automation
  • Paper and resource usage
  • Managed print services

Much of cloud’s growth centers on printing solutions and document management systems, and how your business handles document digitization, sharing, and access management in the cloud. When assessing where you stand as a paper-based business vs. digital transformation for 2018, it’s essential to understand the role cloud technologies will take in impacting your business’s growth and resource management.

It’s best to be prepared with advanced knowledge and understanding of where and how cloud solutions fit into your workflows. There may still be a need for paper, but your plan for 2018 should clearly outline where and how this fits vs. cloud-based digital solutions. Assess your requirements ahead of time to be ready to take the next step in building your cloud-based workflows throughout the year.
