The business value of cloud computing – or “cloudonomics” – is taking the world by storm. The changes in the IT landscape are forcing C-level executives to evaluate even the most basic businesses practices that they’ve held sacred.
There’s no question that technology is key to accelerating market growth in the cloud industry. If you want to increase consumer spend and game-changing innovation, you’ll need to adopt different thought processes that will help technology drive your business to its greatest potential.
One of those strategies is by forging new and collaborative relationships with users. As the consumer base for cloud services grows, more and more CIOs are rethinking IT architecture and controls to help ease the pressure of making tough IT decisions for even the most non-technical users.
Executives are also reexamining how their organizations work best together and how to prioritize initiatives that will provide the strongest competitive advantage for the business.
Recently, a team of Rackspace experts explained how they overcame challenges to drive new, innovative initiatives for Rackspace. Speakers included Rackspace CIO Steve Mills, Rackspace CMO Suaad Sait, Rackspace CFO Karl Pichler and Rackspace Vice President of Enterprise Cloud Lisa Larson.
