Industries need to realize the true power of cloud technology.

Cloud technology is changing the world, without the spotlight. Currently, as the world is dealing with a coronavirus pandemic, this technology is enabling the rapid development of covid-19 vaccines that are giving people hope to fight through this tough time. One of the leading vaccine development pharmaceutical companies, Moderna, was able to deliver its first clinical trial batch despite it being a smaller company than many pharma giants. How was that possible? By building and scaling its operations on the cloud. Moderna accomplished this in just 42 days after the initial sequencing of the virus. They invented proprietary cloud-based technologies and methods to generate mRNA constructs that cells recognize because they mimic the cells generated in the body.

Moderna also uses cloud technology to increase its efficiency across manufacturing, inventory management, accounting departments, and to transfer its digital manufacturing model onto partner facilities that help in rapid vaccine production.

Moderna's cloud technology adoption throws light on the power of cloud technology and why industries must pay attention to this technology – it reduces costs, improves flexibility of operations, improves business resilience, increases innovation capabilities, and helps to cater to market demands rapidly. It also gives startups and midsize companies access to advanced technologies like computing power, algorithms, and programming tools.

Since cloud technology has boomed, many companies have learned that the new technology can do them a lot of good. They have been using it to facilitate work-from-home, amp up their digital activities, provide telehealth, entertainment streaming, and more.
