Cloud Expo Silicon Valley $500 Savings here!

Cloud computing is disrupting the world of IT as we know it. Unlike previous platform shifts, this one enables users to bypass central IT. Whether you call it "Rogue IT" or "Getting My Job Done," end users taking IT into their own hands is happening today. The democratization of IT has profound implications for IT organizations and forces them to become service providers.

In his session at the 11th International Cloud Expo, Bernard Golden, Vice President of Enterprise Solutions at enStratus, will talk about how IT should think of its future role, what being a service provider means, and practical steps IT should take to transition to a service provider operation.

Specific topics addressed will include:

  • Reducing IT friction
  • The new roles of standards and processes
  • Consulting, not implementing
  • IT governance and security in a democratized IT environment
  • The importance of IT economics in a "Getting My Job Done" world

Attendees will learn five concrete actions they should take to become a service provider and avoid being overthrown in the cloud computing revolution
