Margie Davis No Comments

About a decade ago, the concept of cloud computing (as a service) was a little known concept; and suddenly it exploded.

Automotive

“Making the new vehicle creation process more collaborative using cloud computing not only accelerates time-to-market, it also leads to higher quality and new designs that reflect customer requirements.”
