AST closed its first quarter of 2019 with a record percentage of sales in cloud software and services – more than 90%, making AST a true leader in digital transformation!
This achievement lines up with Gartner’s forecast that worldwide IT spending is projected to total $3.8 trillion in 2019, an increase of 3.2% from expected spending of $3.7 trillion in 2018.
Cloud migration began a decade or so ago, primarily with non-mission-critical cloud services that addressed specific needs, such as web service tools, email/collaboration tools, app development/testing environments, etc. More recently, braver, forward-looking organizations have begun adopting cloud services for specific functions, such as sales force automation, talent management, and customer relationship management. In a world where digital transformation is now in full swing, more clients are relying on AST’s cloud experts to deliver the modern solutions necessary to remain relevant in this cloud world.
As a leader in cloud transformation, AST makes the cloud transition seamless for clients, enabling them to leverage the technology to yield desired business outcomes.
