Economic uncertainty and competitive pressure raise performance demands on the enterprise. Success hinges on freeing capital and talent to focus on operational effectiveness, customer-facing innovation and growth. Cloud-based business solutions offer freedom as companies increasingly consume IT as a mixture of cloud and services.

Kris demonstrated examples of this new IT consumption model. Also, he discussed the advantages of simplification and standardization of operations through processes and platform capabilities. This reduces complexity and avoids proprietary processes and system lock-ins.

The keynote was followed by a Q&A session.
