While revising a series of case studies for a global IT services company, I found myself asking them over and over: What did you do client that was different or better than what either the client or your competitors could have done?

A lot of local and regional IT “solution” providers I work with have a self-esteem issue. When I ask “What differentiates you from your competitors?” they say “Nothing.” “We just do what everyone else does – install and manage networks, do user support, plan upgrades, execute cloud migrations,” they say. Or, “We try to listen to […]

Senior IT buyers want the cloud to make them more agile, not just save them money. But they’re also skeptical about whether such Web-based services can meet traditional IT standards for performance, interoperability and security. To succeed, cloud marketers need to address in detail both these hopes and fears. Those are my top takeaways from […]
