Three Easy Steps to Planning an Effective Cloud IT Strategy
Whether or not your company has an official cloud IT strategy, your organization is likely already using the cloud in some capacity. Perhaps it's on your phone (with iCloud or Google), a Software-as-a-Service you purchased, or a virtual machine hosting a website.
Cloud may be driven by the IT department, but there's a good chance it's not.
