The most efficient, flexible, and future-proofed marketing systems are cloud native. This architecture provides significant economic and operational advantages over on-premise or conventional SaaS solutions. However, many early adopters of marketing solutions deployed on-premise and SaaS solutions because they were considered best of breed at the time, and cloud-native solutions and IT organizations hadn't matured to the point of mission-critical readiness. Companies that adopted on-premise or SaaS solutions now find themselves lagging in their ability to quickly upgrade and enhance their systems and adapt to the new demands of a highly personalized, digital-first, omnichannel world. Today, your MarTech infrastructure is your brand, and if you compete against companies with systems that provide greater resiliency, adaptability, and efficiency, you are at an increasingly significant disadvantage. When cloud first emerged, it was a difficult proposition to "lift and shift" conventional applications environments. It could take years of planning, testing, and parallel operations to make the change. However, legacy applications that have been "lifted and shifted" lack the agility, performance, and ease of use marketers need, while hosted SaaS applications lack customizability and control. For example, when Netflix first moved to the cloud it took approximately eight years. Today, that time has been reduced to a matter of days and weeks due to the evolution of cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS), the migration processes and tooling, and the skills needed to operate in the cloud.

With HCL's Solution Factory (SoFy), new cloud-native deployments of HCL solutions, including Unica, can be provisioned in a matter of minutes and deployed on premises, or via public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud. If the full set of skilled resources is lacking, HCL...

eCommerce sales for 2021 will be more than $147 billion greater than forecast before the pandemic. If you are not already invested in a robust e-commerce solution, you will need to get started to survive in the pandemic economy. Many companies initially jumped into ecommerce with a low-cost platform but found that it can't handle the number of transactions. If companies cannot keep up with the growing number of transactions, they will miss out on sales and customers, limiting their business's growth.
