HG Insights Identifies COVID-19 Business Technology Needs with Cloud Maturity Profiles

SANTA BARBARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The historic economic disruption triggered by the Coronavirus has confined one billion people to their homes, pressuring global institutions to accelerate cloud adoption levels to keep business operations running as smoothly as possible.

HG Insights, the global leader in technology intelligence, has deployed a data science approach to mine digital signals that identify which companies have cloud infrastructures that can better weather the economic storm brought on by the Coronavirus. Companies with more advanced cloud technologies have a distinct advantage over others with infrastructure not built to accommodate workforce disruptions or remote working protocols.

Cloud maturity profiles from HG Insights show that cloud technology investment levels across key industry verticals varies considerably – with Healthcare lagging behind at a time when moving workloads to the cloud is desperately needed.

HG Insights developed these cloud maturity profiles by processing information from billions of digital documents to produce intelligence at the industry and company levels. Granular insights mapping cloud technology installations and spend levels to specific companies are available on-demand on the HG Insights Platform.

“Companies without mature cloud infrastructures need to hastily migrate applications and data to the cloud now to keep operations up and running. Enterprises will continue to accelerate cloud transformation programs well beyond the COVID-19 pandemic as agile technologies become the norm,” said Tim Royston-Webb, EVP of Strategy at HG Insights. “Our technology intelligence can detect exactly which companies have not adopted cloud solutions, so that technology vendors can prioritize which organizations need the most assistance during these challenging times.”
