My grandmother doesn’t trust banks. Every month, as soon as she receives her pension, she immediately takes out the money and hides it in her house, some of it under the mattress, some of it in a vase. Part of it under the mattress, part of it in a vase.
For her, it is safer and more accessible there. There is no argument I can give her that will convince her otherwise.
otherwise. I can explain to her that a lot of systems have evolved in the bank to guarantee systems have evolved to guarantee the safety of the money, that she can have access to it at any time and place with her card.
None of that will have any effect on her. The same thing happens with many Generation X and Baby Boomer managers when I want to convince them Boomers when I want to convince them to use systems that operate in the cloud or digital
cloud-based systems or digitizing their paper-based processes.
For them, storing their information anywhere other than their company’s server or their company’s server or a filing cabinet in the office is to expose it to exposing it to anyone stealing it or even risking losing it.
The truth is that, these days, those risks are even when information is stored locally. The cloud is nothing more
just another server, installed somewhere remote, managed by a group of professionals in information management and security.
The companies that are dedicated to this, invest in infrastructure, personnel and the development of protocols to minimize risks to minimize risks that may compromise the security of their main asset: the information that their clients deposit in them. In the same way that banks invest enormous amounts of resources to gain the trust of their customers.
Since their business model depends their business model depends precisely on that trust, Amazon, Google, IBM

in advance. They implement the best industry standards and obtain the most rigorous industry standards and obtain the most rigorous certifications. Your users must recognize that they can hardly match such an effort.
Cloud platforms give us the following advantages:
1.Cost savings by not having to invest in local servers and the corresponding maintenance and
servers and the corresponding maintenance and update services.
The reliability of a cloud service is generally better than that of a local infrastructure. Most providers guarantee 99.99
providers guarantee you 99.99% availability 24/7/365.
Something similar happens when you want to convince them to migrate from paper formats to digital formats. Doing audits or collecting collect quality sampling information with a tablet or cell phone and save the data and cell phone and save the data and reports in digital format.
Create electronic work orders instead of the paper format with carbon copies, generate virtual red cards or e-kanbans. They feel secure when that information is duplicated on paper and stored in a file cabinet. But it is a perceived security, not real.
Having the data in digital formats at the source gives us a huge potential to use enormous potential to use analytics applications to extract key information to make timely decisions and to do this at a low cost.
And if we consider that now the best capability and flexibility, having all that information in real time and in an almost automatic way can be a great advantage.
Cloud computing and digitization are two movements that are inevitably encroaching movements that are inevitably invading industrial industrial environments, and at an ever-increasing pace. This companies to connect more effectively with customers, integrate their supply chain and integrate their supply chain and accelerate the pace of innovation while reducing costs and innovation while reducing costs and risks.
The amount of The amount of information being generated at Gemba is overwhelming, and these new These new technologies are needed to process it properly and access it anytime, anywhere to make decisions. Managers who delay the incorporation of these not only jeopardize their position in the organization, but also the existence of the organization, but also the existence of the organization and the jobs it provides.
