All of my friends and colleagues know or at least have heard about the term Cloud Computing. Although I have discussed deeply in many other articles and past tweets about the definition of this nowadays “modern” concept, why is the need for Cloud Computing so emerging in these recent years, remains a question without answer for many people.
In this post I try to identify the roles of potential digital transformers who could start to consider the introduction of Cloud Computing within the main or traditional business (analysts, managers, knowledge keepers, innovators inside an enterprise).
There is no doubt; the word bumping inside my head in the last year was “Automation”. Automate everything; being obsessed with repeating tasks over time in the IT Operation context is crucial in having success when building a stable and well-thought infrastructure.
But, what is behind process automation, or simply managing IT Operations and configurations?

My role in past organizations has always been that of a sort of jolly, transversal, with a 360-degree view around what happens in today’s digital agenda. I have preferred to keep a consultancy style while getting my own hands dirty in the developing steps of a typical IT project.
These last two years I have had the opportunity to take part in many processes of transformation in different SMB (Small and Medium Business) handling topics of digitalization, change management, analytics, and data-driven strategies. However, my perception is that of a gap between what these organizations can realistically implement and how they behave to achieve this.
