Making the move from an on-premise architecture to a cloud solution was a big decision for many businesses. Despite the many benefits, the idea was daunting but, in the end, it turned out to be beneficial all around.

Now, businesses are faced with deciding if they should migrate from their general, private cloud solution to an industry cloud solution.

What Are Industry Cloud Solutions?

Industry cloud solutions sometimes called “community clouds,” are a package of cloud services, tools, and applications that are focused and optimized to assist a specific industry. The goal being that multiple businesses within an industry can benefit from cutting-edge enterprise cloud solutions that are designed to help make that specific industry more efficient, profitable, and sustainable.

Opportunity or Distraction?

While industry cloud solutions are fairly new and still gaining traction, we do believe they are a unique opportunity for businesses in certain industries. Heavily regulated industries like healthcare and financial services can benefit from the added security, data protection, and privacy that industry clouds offer.

Industry clouds also offer an opportunity for private cloud providers to partner with public cloud providers. Private cloud providers can offer industry clouds with specific enterprise cloud solution applications and upgrades.
