How I&O Leaders Get Out of the Data Center Business with Oracle Cloud Solutions

Over the past few years, we’ve seen a disturbing trend take over. I&O leaders, who previously were able to call the shots on what happened with business IT and now, are suddenly being issued mandates on how they should do their jobs. This is becoming such a widespread trend that you may have received one of these mandates already.

Of course, we’re talking about that dreaded imperative: “IT must move all data center operations to the cloud within 24 months.”

You’re a pro. You can handle this. But you need a plan. Craft your plan using the Gartner research report brought to you by the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure experts at Centroid.
