Konica Minolta is pleased to announce the launch of its cloud-based, multi-tenant software-as-a-service printing solution EveryonePrint Hybrid Cloud Platform (HCP). The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has acted as a catalyst for hybrid work environments. In its "IDC FutureScape: Worldwide IT Industry 2021 Predictions", IDC predicts that "by the end of 2021, [...] 80% of enterprises will put a mechanism in place to shift to cloud-centric infrastructure and applications twice as fast as before the pandemic".  But one topic that is still often neglected when it comes to cloud is print services, which often fall outside a company's cloud-first strategy. Yet companies also benefit from all the advantages that the cloud offers, such as low administration costs, low investment costs, high flexibility and scalability, high security and workload relief for IT staff.
