As organizations are investing hundreds of millions of dollars on cloud-related technologies and services, many within the organization have no clue what cloud is and the derived value and benefit of embracing a sound cloud strategy. With new cloud solutions, such as iCloud, Facebook, etc., that impact non-IT folks, more and more people are wondering and asking the question: What is cloud computing and what is my organization doing to leverage the latest cloud technologies? When the organization is not transparent about such initiatives, people will start to leverage other cloud solutions as they are much easier to access in the market than in the past and are available at a lower cost; however, they are much more vulnerable than the IT services delivered by the IT organization. As the implications of cloud computing touch so many within the organization even outside of IT, it is imperative to have a sound cloud education strategy in place to ensure alignment within the organization to optimize cloud-related investments.
In his session at the 10th International Cloud Expo, Marc Halcrow, the North America Regional Manager at ITpreneurs, will delve into the value of investing in a sound cloud education strategy to ensure alignment and optimize cloud-related investments. He will also share a case study from a large multinational organization as they embarked on a cloud strategy, with a key component being around educating staff to optimize cloud investments.
