What Else Every CEO Needs to Know About the Cloud - Andrew McAfee - Harvard Business Review

I have an article in the new (November 2011) issue of Harvard Business Review called "What Every CEO Needs to Know About the Cloud." It's aimed at managers and executives who work outside the IT department and might not know or care very much about what goes on inside the IT department. So why should such people be interested in cloud computing? Because it's going to change both how, and how well, their organizations work. This is a strong claim, and many find it a ridiculous one. After all, companies already have tons of technology; it's not like they're operating at present without hardware, software, databases, and networks. The move to the cloud is just a shift in where these resources are located. Executing this shift sounds like a classic job for the IT geeks, and one that needn't concern the rest of the company. But it should, and it will. Read What Else Every CEO Needs to Know About the Cloud - Andrew McAfee - Harvard Business Review.
