Why Read This Report

Cloud services, from departmental SaaS applications to consumer-facing file sharing, are being brought into your organization, and they are increasingly weaving their ways into business workflows. Whether you like it or not, this trend will grow over the next eight years, and the role of enterprise BT will need to shift from procuring and managing these services to guiding the business to better cloud service choices and integration of these services with other business systems. This change will require a shift in skill sets and knowledge from your BT teams. This skills and staffing report details the skills change required and four key roles CIOs working on cloud computing will need to develop in their organizations to proactively engage cloud buyers.
