"IT leaders charged with moving a business to the cloud are responsible for ensuring the business strategy and expected value are realized," writes Carol Cvitkovich, Infor CloudSuite VP, in an Oct. 28 column on diginomica.com, headlined 'Four Cloud Migration Focus Areas for IT Leaders.'
"As more enterprises are discovering first hand, adoption of cloud technology can relieve a number of on-premise software and hardware burdens. Yet achieving these goals depends on the knowledge of the business IT group and their vendor services team.
"Through my decades of software services engagements in various industries, the ingredients for success have become clear. Here are four key areas where IT leaders should devote their cloud migration focus:
