Abstract

Cloud technology is being adopted by corporations around the world. Its introduction brings not only challenges but also huge opportunities and potential. Moving to the Cloud Corporation outlines everything that a manager needs to know in order to make strategic decisions about cloud technology. This sharp and easy-to-read book explores the future potential of cloud over the next ten years, including the profound implications that it can have for businesses and their employees if it is managed correctly, alongside the fundamentals of cloud technology, from its introduction through to implementation and management. Based upon a wealth of research and data from a survey of over 1,000 business and IT executives, this book also features over 45 interviews with key international cloud providers, integrators and users, which provides a deep insight into the progress of the cloud so far and supports the need for a new operating model. This is the essential guide for managers who want to understand the impact and implications that cloud technology can have on a business over the next ten years.
