We came across this excellent, thought provoking article on the changing role of IT Managers in businesses by Mark Pascall, from 3months.com
It seems that some are definitely not coping with this “new fangled” cloud technology. Some are embracing it and helping the companies they work for grow.
It’s interesting that even though 3months are in a completely different business to Spike, they come up against the same obstacles we do… That is, companies that don’t want to consider external services that provide agile and scalable solutions. Because they are locked into single vendor, generally hosted services, with long term contracts.
This attitude is changing. But will it change quick enough to pull a lot of companies out of the dark ages and back into a place where they be can innovative and productive again?
