For you, IT paves the way to keep things going.
With the CFO on your side, you don’t miss any chance to save money along the way. The staff in IT Operations and Maintenance appreciate your clear, direct leadership approach. Suppliers like your tough-but-fair attitude when it comes to renewing contracts.
You know your infrastructure inside out. Hence, you are always well-informed – and your opinion is always well-founded.
You don’t settle for the “new is always better”-paradigm. Money is made elsewhere, and IT is an internal service provider. Business sets the pace for digital transformation. As long as the existing infrastructure and processes keep everything running smoothly, why should you bother about so-called modern approaches such as Cloud Computing and Agile Working just because they are new?
On the other hand, you are always willing to find new ways to serve the needs of your business partners better and increase efficiency. If new solutions are helpful to that end, you give it a shot. Young members of your team advocate Multi- and Hybrid-Cloud approaches in order to combine the best of two worlds – and to reduce costs even more.
THERE IS GOOD NEWS FOR YOU:
it’s not Cloud or on-prem, there is an ‘and’ in between. You can make up your mind via a small project or a PoC. Find out if Cloud is the right way for your company, even if it’s only a sideway.
