Speaking of his appointment Descovich added, “I see Nordcloud becoming the trusted partner in the Austrian market, working closely with our customers and partners to supercharge public cloud adoption. Nordcloud has a unique position in being cloud agnostic and cloud native, and is growing at an incredibly fast rate, which is what attracted me to join.

Being cloud native means having an agile way of working, moving fast and having a cultural mindset of continuous change. In a native cloud environment, Cloud Technology can help our clients in many ways: gaining uptime, scalability, better performance, velocity during software delivery, embedded security, better insights, full control, a higher transparency, and last but not least cost savings. Cloud native applications architectured by developers for the cloud, with built infrastructure and methodologies optimised for the cloud.

With economies of speed, the cloud is the natural choice. Digital companies don‘t have the luxury of a well-defined target. Rather, they live in a world of constant change. At Nordcloud, we can help our clients to win the competitive advantage while enabling them to manage the fast-paced change“.
