Cloud computing is what businesses need

The Malta Communications Authority (MCA) is encouraging businesses to go digital by migrating to the cloud.

During the Malta Cloud Forum’s business breakfast, the Chair, MCA, promoted cloud computing technologies as a viable information system model for micro enterprises and SMEs. The benefits and challenges posed by cloud computing were further explored throughout the sessions delivered by representatives from EY and RSM.

Opening the event via a recorded speech, the Parliamentary Secretary for Digital Economy and Innovation, Silvio Schembri, stressed that “cloud computing will enable new ideas to come to life overnight by speeding time-to-market.” Therefore, business efforts can shift to higher-value activities such as creating new products or services for customers, rather than focusing on procuring, installing and configuring hardware and software.
