Blog-post by,

The CIOs and senior architects we talk to in our research typically have one of two motivations for pursuing a private cloud: to increase agility in responding to business opportunities, or to save money in operations due to increased efficiency.  Happily for all concerned, the two are not mutually exclusive!  In fact, although they follow different paths to the private cloud, folks embarked on either path will wind up having to stop at the same way stations – though perhaps in different order.

Blog-post by,
blaberis

The demands on CIOs and other IT  leaders to track and implement the ever-massing wave of new technologies have become even more challenging of late. The reason: these  leaders are being asked to play more strategic roles in their companies even as they struggle to keep their heads above the technological flood.
