Embracing cloud momentum: mapping our journey forward at Nordcloud

Last year, IBM was recognised by Gartner® as a Visionary in the Magic Quadrant™ for Public Cloud IT Transformation Services. As one of IBM's key cloud-native practices (and playing major role in hybrid cloud value proposition), this recognition, we feel, is a testament to Nordcloud’s contribution to pushing boundaries in the public cloud space.

And we see this recognition not just as a validation of our past efforts - but a call to action for the future. It's reflective of our strategic vision, dedication and customer focus across our organisation, as well as the strength of our strategic partnerships with leading hyperscalers. 

And it validates that we’re on the right path, helping our customer to succeed in digital transformation while creating fast and efficient IT delivery.

What’s our focus for the next chapter?

As we look forward, we believe our success will be built on three core areas: partnerships, expertise, and customer focus.

The power of our hyperscaler partnerships

Our commitment to forging strong alliances with the world's leading tech companies — Microsoft, AWS, Google — has been instrumental in our ability to deliver meaningful outcomes for our clients. Moving forward, we’ll continue to strengthen these partnerships, unlocking new possibilities with our unique cloud-native approach.

Cloud-native expertise

In today's rapidly evolving digital landscape, having the people that can deliver on technology’s potential is the ultimate differentiator. Our focus will be on continuing to build our unique talent. And we’ll equip them with the latest skills and knowledge in cloud-native technologies embedded with AI to drive operational efficiency. 

We know this positions us as a trusted advisor and partner with our cloud providers and our clients. It keeps us at the forefront of innovation and means we can effectively support our clients' evolving needs.

Customer focus

At the heart of everything we do lies our unwavering commitment to our customers. Our success is linked to theirs, and we are dedicated to helping them navigate their digital transformation journeys with confidence and clarity. 

So, whether they’re just embarking on their cloud journey or looking to optimise their existing investments in cloud, we’re ready to provide the guidance, support, and solutions they need to succeed. 

And we’re investing in our capabilities around the rapid evolution of Gen AI. Through AI-powered data and application development, we aim to deliver tangible solutions and competitive edge for customers on public cloud.

We’re already achieving big things, and we’re ready to achieve more

Looking ahead, our focus remains clear: to supercharge our customers towards embracing the world's best technology and accelerate the world towards a more equal, greener, and sustainable digital society.

We’re energised by the possibilities that lie ahead. The cloud market presents major opportunities for growth and innovation, and we’re poised to seize them alongside IBM. From Gen AI to the evolving role of cloud in business, we see endless possibilities for transformation and growth, for ourselves and for our clients.

Together, we’re already achieving big things. And we’ll continue to shape the future of hyperscaler cloud.
