Cloud and Your Job - What's Next For IT Professionals?
The change we have been talking about for years is here: IT Departments are being torn apart and reassembled in new and interesting ways, as one by one companies make their move to the Cloud. As predicted, IT Pros are being asked to take on new and different roles and to be more involved in the business.
In this session, we will look at some of these new roles; what’s working, what’s failing, who is succeeding and who has been left behind. Being an IT professional today is exciting as it is scary. There is lots of opportunity; but so many gaps to fall into. It is time to take inventory and ask yourself: are you well positioned to succeed?
