Singapore enterprises should "stop worrying about" the boxes and "start loving" the newfound focus on supporting the companies' true business aspirations. The cloud is not taking the importance of the CIO away but on the contrary, liberating the whole IT department to become an integral engine of innovation powering the potential of business differentiation. Those people who do not see it this way are probably the ones the next generation of us will only find in museums.
Andy Waroma is Vice President for Business Development at Logicalis Asia. In his job, Andy has overseen numerous cloud deployments and manages the Asian business development practice focusing on SAP and other enterprise technologies, delivered either as an on-premise deployment or as a managed service in the cloud. He feels that CIOs and decision makers of large corporations in Singapore have still not recognized the value of the public cloud and this reticence is making them fall behind their international peers and local smaller competitors.
