The “cloud” has changed the way IT is both thought of and delivered within all sizes of organisations and most alarming is that it has changed within a very, very short time.

IT execs are not, by nature, there to hinder the business and the vast majority of IT workers at all levels are doing their very best to provide the services that the business demands of them (sometimes those demands are inarticulate, badly thought out and delivered with thinly veiled threats – it’s not all IT evil you know). The IT execs have grown up with a world view of buying in software and hardware, balancing the degree of “customisation” needed to keep the business happy and ensuring a sliver of “future proofing”.

That world is going away. IT execs all over the world are left wondering what they did wrong, to which the answer is nothing. However, the world is still changing and IT execs need help.

That’s where we come in; WaveAdept are experienced and skilled at providing a “Cloud Addendum” for executives that explains what the cloud is, how to use it and how it can help your organisation. We also provide the extremely popular “current state evaluation” that helps you work out where you are and where YOU want to go (are you prepared to get the most out of the cloud?).

Check out the details on our “What we do” page …

Google are also doing their best to explain the “cloud” (their version of it, of course) most notably with a recent Google-hosted event titled Atmosphere attended by nearly 400 IT execs. All of the public discussions are on YouTube and we urge you to work your way through them.

Having said that, if you only have time for one presentation we’d like to point you to the one given by Geoffrey Moore in which he clearly describes expresses the change that all IT execs are now experiencing AND what to focus on now.

As the presentation is a little 40 minutes we recommend that you book a meeting with your fellow IT managers, watch it and then discuss the opportunities and challenges it raises with your company (and we guarantee you will have a lot to talk about – let us help resolve them)

One last point – Geoffrey’s focus is on “middle management” and the move away from “documents” and towards “messages” and great collaboration in order for organisations to survive and thrive in this new world order. WaveAdept was built to help organisations such as yours make that transition as painless as possible.
