Do CEOs Care About Cloud?
CEOs and direct reports: bonding over technology since post feudal times

Cloud computing ownership is traditionally seen as the province of CIO or CTO, and where those roles don’t exist in an organization, the VP or even Director/Manager of IT oversees cloud implementation.

However, with more business units accessing cloud platforms for a variety of purposes, the range of required buy-in has similarly increased: the CFO is now a primary consideration in the way a business integrates with the cloud, as do marketing, sales, as well as other business unit heads within the organization.

But the CEO isn’t concerned about the technical aspects of what cloud delivers in the way that it is germane for even marketing and sales to understand how cloud process work at least on a fundamental level. Those groups utilizing Salesforce or different automation platforms need some technical ability to sync systems or specialize the platform.

CEOs and direct reports: bonding over technology since post feudal times.

The CEO is running the ship, and the results he or she is measured by aren’t as specialized as the groups reporting to the top office. So what does a CEO care about with regards to cloud? Mainly, the CEO is interested in those things that he or she would be interested in if cloud didn’t exist: time to revenue, ROI, and governance and compliance.

These three elements are fundamental to how any business approaches almost any investment. But for the CEO these are the areas that will most impact how his or her leadership is judged. Cloud is often analyzed from the particular parts of the service that appeal to the real issues facing businesses – cost concerns, agility requirements, business continuity and more. But the importance of these areas are all outcomes of the technology on the technical level.

What cloud delivers to a business directly is perhaps a bit harder to define. We’ve talked about a few aspects here, but for the CEO cloud has to deliver on the above three areas – and if that can’t be articulated, everything else about cloud is meaningless.
