Cloud was a major theme at the 2015 CeBIT event, with KPMG hosting a compelling panel on how cloud is changing the corporate and government landscapes with respect to provision of services, and how funding paradigms need to shift in response.
The key challenge for organisations is how they respond to the challenge of the pace of change that cloud has introduced. It’s not simply an IT issue – it’s a whole of business enablement issue.
Cloud offers the ability to take internal data and services and externalise and monetise them, which represents a breaking down of traditional business models.
While organisations are responding differently to cloud culture, gaining traction with customers hasn’t been problematic.
