Management Strategies for the Cloud Revolution

Out with a book on how to handle the cloud is Charles Babcock, an Information Week editor-at-large.  Management Strategies for the Cloud Revolution(available in bookstores on Amazon) is easy and engaging to read not because Babcock takes either the subject matter or the intelligence of his readers lightly—he’s far too intelligent and aware to even feint in either of those directions—but because he knows his subject so well and because, as the title promises, he has the fervor and the passion of a revolutionary himself.

Management Strategies for the Cloud Revolution(available in bookstores on Amazon) provides the practical information you need to position your company for the future. Using the game-changing technology of cloud computing, employees of any rank can provision themselves with only the computing power they need. What used to be an enormous investment and take up IT departments’ precious time will now be accomplished with the swipe of a credit card.

Arming you with the critical understanding of how the cloud is going to dramatically transform the world of business, Management Strategies for the Cloud Revolution:

  • Spells out all the benefits of cloud computing
  • Reveals how to become a leadership example regarding cloud issues
  • Helps you formulate an effective cloud strategy
  • Use the cloud for drastically improving your company’s bottom line

If you run a large business, cloud computing will save you huge money; if you’re a small business owner, it enables you to utilize previously cost-prohibitive platforms. So if you want to compete in the future, you can’t afford to miss Management Strategies for Cloud Computing.
