Cloud is the new shadow IT: ready or not, preparing for mass adoption driven by business innovation and consumerization
As a large service provider, Tieto sees the journey to the cloud that most of our customers are making. Cloud enables much faster time to market, supporting the fail fast, fail forward culture. Similar to Shadow IT before, we see the business wanting to adopt the new technologies and services offered by cloud directly without the help of IT. Only this time it is different: using the Cloud is much easier and faster than setting up Shadow IT. And the demand is greater due to most companies pursuing a digital transformation strategy. Finally, Cloud is ready for mass adoption by the majority, not only the early adopters.
In this presentation I will explain why this is all happening and how you in the enterprise can prepare for it.
