Interview: Ensuring a successful cloud journey

T.C. Seow | Feb. 16, 2015
Kerrie Holley, IBM Fellow, shares his views on cloud computing, security and what businesses need to do to become more agile, more secure, and eventually, more successful.

Cloud computing, fundamentally changes everything about how we work, live, play. Mobility growth is exploding with cloud as we use mobile devices and keep our music, pictures and documents in the cloud. Enterprises share and collaborate using cloud services.  Mobility and the consumerisation of IT clearly places more demand on IT infrastructures spurring the growth and innovation in cloud computing.

Could you comment on the Apple-IBM strategic partnership that was forged last year? That seemed to have underlined quite significantly the importance of mobile devices in service delivery and information consumption. How should organisations get started?

The IBM and Apple partnership is helping to build business apps using some of IBM's world-class technology, such as Watson, hosting those apps on its cloud, while helping enterprises customise and deploy the apps. Start by becoming a mobile enterprise, and check out some of the apps.


Kerrie Holley will be hosting a series of CIO Dialogues at IBM SolutionsConnect on 4 March in Manila; 10 March in Jakarta; 12 March in Kuala Lumpur; 17 March in Singapore ; and 19 March in Bangkok. This is a by-invite only event for CIOs. For more information, contact Leroy at
