Old ways vs New
As consumers,most of us easily moved away from our Blackberrys to iPhones, from our PCs to tablets, from keyboards to touch and the list goes on. The point is that embracing new ways seems to be intutive as consumers. In the enterprise world however, be it companies or individuals, the transition is so much harder because it is a matter of one's relevance and livelihood. Couched under part valid issues of privacy, security, compliance and performance, the whole ecosystem pushes back to protect incumbency. As we can all see, it has taken almost 8-10 years for 'Cloud' to reach a tipping point in the enterprise (AWS and Salesforce have been around for that duration). The BOA scenario is probably just 1 example of what is playing out in many enterprises and there is still some ways to go. Although technically and economically, the benefits of a 'Cloud' strategy are obvious, the 'people' situation, where one group will win big and the other will lose big is not a sustainable state. In addition to 'Technology and business experts', time also for 'HR leaders and career mentors' to weigh in.
