As you begin your journey
along the cloud maturity
model, make sure you are
planning for advanced
stages of the model.
Select a provider/partner
that can lead you into
repeatable, managed and
even optimized stages of
the model across all
technologies you will
likely leverage including
hybrid solutions.”

Does IT Matter?
Do You Have A Seat At The Decision Makers Table?
Y2K 1998->1/1/2000
• We had a seat at the
table
• Almost endless
resources
Dot-Com Boom -> Bust
Now – What’s Next?
• IT made decisions
• Tons of money
• Limited time, endless
projects
• Don’t wait for next
“industry” shift
• Make your own shift
• Prove you deserve a
seat at the table
How do typical executives see IT?
• Huge Cost Center
• Barrier to progress
• Pain in the …. Necessary evil
You CAN
Change IT
Let’s Look at How
Who is Smart & “Empowered”
• CEO? Empowered, sure… Is she/he smart on what is possible with
technology & cloud services? Is it her/his job to tell you what to do? Do
you want it to be her/his job to tell you what to do?
• CFO? Empowered, sure… is he/she smart on cloud services?
• Managers? Empowered? Smart on technology & cloud Services? Is it
his/her job to tell you HOW to solve current business problems? Is that
what you want… to be micro managed?
• YOU? Empowered? Smart?
In the words of Carol Meyrowitz (CEO TJX)
“Teaching and developing our next generation of leaders remain a top
priority because we understand that our ability to achieve our future goals
relies on the talent and people within our organization”
http://www.tjx.com/about.asp
Who is Smart & “Empowered”
• YOU!
Your leadership wants you to and in
some cases even incentivizes you to get
smart and find ways to help the
company! You are smarter than anyone
else at the company!!! Let’s all go out
and DO OUR JOB!
Need more help?
Ok… Think about this…

Certification Develops Essential Skills
"I’m responsible for a team

When we hire someone
new, we check out his
