It's all too easy for CIOs and IT departments to build a strategy around any new technology area that is focused on delivering lower IT costs and greater operational efficiency. However, to get your cloud strategy right, you have to learn to move away from measuring the success of change against IT care-abouts and focus on the priorities of the business. Forrester Forrsights surveys show a stark disconnect between IT's and the business' desired outcomes from cloud computing; embracing the shift to cloud services means driving and measuring its success against metrics defined by the business before those of IT. To get this right, change must first happen in the culture of the IT department, and this change must start at the top. This report outlines the change management of Forrester's solution for CIO executives working on cloud computing. This report is designed to help you onboard the business to your cloud strategy.
