Based on 20+ years of Internet technological development, we can see that the mainstream trend is the use of cloud technology to meet the business needs of a wide variety of industries including Ready-Mix Concrete.
Leveraging Cloud software helps streamline core business processes for Concrete Producers by offering a better way to acquire, maintain and act on critical information. Cloud applications promote workforce collaboration and forge a tighter connection with customers to build long-term partnerships and become an extension of their business. True partners act as strategists, focusing on developing a meaningful impact on their customer’s businesses and by adding value. Partners are capable, committed, and willing to invest the time and resources to foster long-term relationships built on trust and transparency. Cloud technology enables these types of partnerships to take shape by offering the tools necessary to improve data management, decision making, and staying connected.
Highest Uptime – The cloud has redundant data centers, robust protocols, and a multitude of systems in place to guarantee high availability or uptime even if some components fail.
Maintenance Free – Data back-ups and data storage is done automatically so users always have fast, easy access to the latest version of their data.
Save IT costs – Reduce the cost of installing, managing, and maintaining servers, networks, and software on-premise
Easier Access – Easily access the latest slice of information using any internet-enabled device to access data in real-time to make important decisions
Better Security – Ensures data is backed up and protected in a secure and safe location, minimizing downtime or loss of productivity
Business Insights – Generate powerful business or KPI (key performance indicator) reports and dashboards so decision makers can leverage their data and software investments.
Scalability – Producers can scale their operations depending on market conditions or seasonal changes to better manage fixed costs.
Collaboration and customer loyalty – Online customer-facing portals and mobile Apps promote transparency, data sharing, and customer retention by offering added value services delivered online to customers.
SaaS model – Software as a Service offers the possibility of procuring software as an operational expenditure and not an upfront capital expenditure or “Cap-Ex” which can offer tax benefits for businesses.
Cloud-native app development is a way to accelerate how applications are designed and built. The objective is to deliver apps that users want to use at the speed businesses need them. Cloud-native development is an effective approach to designing, building, and updating apps quickly while improving the quality and overall user experience. In short, it’s a way to build and run responsive, scalable, and fault-tolerant apps quickly and effectively.
Cloud-native is a direct result of cloud computing. It would not have come into existence without the development of cloud computing. Software development is expected to become simpler and faster as we move forward. Programmers are looking for ways to write fewer lines of code, and develop applications easier and faster. Easier programming languages are also being developed for people who do not have programming skills. As a result, more programming technologies and ideas are being developed every day.
With the development and popularity of cloud computing in recent years, IT infrastructures and software development have become more agile and less complex. In the same way, businesses are no longer plagued by problems related to performance, security, and scalability. The future lies in cloud technology as the foundational element for digital transformation. Sysdyne’s cloud-native suite of ConcreteGO dispatch, Pioneer Cloud Batch, and iStrada Cloud delivery management will deliver on the value of transformational digitization and continue to transform the Ready-Mix Concrete industry.
