It can be easy to think of information technology (IT) as a highly complex, overly demanding and recklessly evolving aspect of modern business. Ironically, however, much of the complexity and labor intensity companies currently experience with their IT solutions has resulted because the companies haven’t kept pace with the rapid evolution of technology. For example, no one would claim that having data spread across discrete application silos is a good thing, or that using spreadsheets to keep track of financial and operational data is the most efficient or effective way to run a business. Likewise, many IT and business managers understand the numerous cost and operational benefits that cloud-based IT solutions can deliver.
