Cloud-Based Enterprise Strategies Deliver Value: CIO Agenda
When Intel published its first “New CIO Agenda” in 2011, most CIOs saw cloud as a promising way to streamline the data center and reduce operations costs. Skeptics were struggling to separate cloud hype from genuine potential.
Today, leading CIOs are deeply involved in cloud implementation, applying cloud-based innovation to transform the enterprise and provide strategic differentiation. Using public, private, or hybrid clouds, infrastructure as a service (IaaS), software as a service (SaaS), or a combination of these cloud-service models, CIOs are reshaping their IT shops into engines for service delivery.
Cloud services provide the means to manage the challenges and take advantage of the opportunities presented by big data, consumerization, and other mega-forces. Cloud services can help you deliver business value, whether you’re the CIO of a company, government agency, healthcare delivery network, university system, global nonprofit, or some other organization.
This edition of the “New CIO Agenda” offers guidance to advance your cloud innovation strategies. In preparing for this issue, our team fanned out across Intel, gleaning insights from executives, technologists, and visionaries who are driving current and future solutions. We talked with Intel’s own IT leaders and reached beyond Intel to include stories of how other organizations are moving forward.
