Yet, according to a recent Wired article, the advancement of cloud computing is also redefining the roles of the CIO and the CTO. An IT leader’s job is becoming more complex as they work to navigate the influx of user-provided devices and ensure consistent performance, security and control across the infrastructure. How can IT leaders continue to offer value to their organizations through a strategic approach to cloud technologies?

There is no one-size-fits-all solution to cloud deployment.  IT leaders need to become a broker of change for cloud. They must be empowered to create the right cloud strategy for business needs, support line of business requirements and meet IT demands across disparate clouds without sacrificing security or performance.
