Until recently, sheer scale was enough to ensure a competitive advantage. Now, startups are challenging the dominance of established brands with their ability to scale up and down and adapt to market forces with immediacy. Variable costs beat fixed costs. Thankfully, new technologies are making their way into enterprise IT departments. They’re led by SaaS and IaaS innovations of cloud providers like AWS, providing the speed and adaptability required to compete and win in today’s economy.
