In many ways you know a move to the cloud is right for certain aspects of your IT but trying to explain that in business-language to somebody who still at the end of the day has to sign a cheque: well that’s still a problem.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could prime those guys in to a business understanding of what the cloud offers and then hit them between the eyes with your insight and prowess? Well – now you can do that. Rolf Harms and Michael Yamartino from Microsoft have created a compelling business-led whitepaper called The Economics of the Cloud.


Horseless Carriage Syndrome: from the whitepaper.

It’s a great read for a CxO or senior manager within an organisation, but also a great read for a techie. Try it – you’ll like it: then pass it on to your boss’s boss!
