Customers, the need to engage customers is unprecedented, more than that you got to be available 24x7, to make sure you're next customer is not limited by the limited availability of information, affirmation required for your product/service for the reason to buy.
Turn Around Times; nobody minds a great coffee would you stand in the queue for your coffee every day for hours?

Infrastructure, how much more would like to spend on infrastructure to maintain and keep the records, also limiting your ease and access to information. You need not create a datacenter and nor you may add everything to the cloud, but there can be hybrid as well depending on your needs.
