The consumerization of IT is most often thought of in terms of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) employees driving IT decisions about enterprise technology, instead of the other way around. But in the cloud, it has a different meaning.
Cloud consumerization of IT means that departments other than enterprise IT can easily become the consumers of traditional IT resources, and that has become a major selling point for cloud services. The risk is that the IT department gets deeper into a support service mode.
But there is a great opportunity for enterprise IT to become cloud experts and, essentially, broker the myriad choices out there for cloud services. Our expert speakers will discuss the trend toward consumerization of the cloud, and how enterprise IT can benefit, instead of getting left behind by becoming the gateway to an enterprise cloud ecosystem.
