WELCOME THE CLOUD NEEDS A HUMAN TOUCH Dear Reader, This magazine is all based around digital cloud solution that enable new innovations. Despite the new opportunities they offer, they are a cause for concern as well. How reliable are cloud providers? What about data security? Are the right people on board? These concerns are relevant and should be addressed, but even more important is to ask yourself whether you can still ignore the cloud. Services that are now available thanks to the cloud offer new market entrants the chance of disrupting existing markets. Do you want to be disrupted or be disruptive? The cloud is a rather technological concept. It is server capacity made available as a service. It differs from traditional models because online services are being developed and provided on top of it, based on monthly subscription models, as Software as a Service (SaaS). Switching from offering traditional license-based models, this might cause temporary revenue loss, which results in insecurity and hesitation. In an interview with Ronald Binkofski, General Manager, CEE Multicountry CIS, we talked about their confidence in moving to the cloud. Across this magazine, you will read how some of our clients profit from the cloud and how it supports them in securing the availability of their services worldwide. Frank Brinkschneider of FLOCERT describes how technology helps them assure worldwide fairness and how it enables them to ultimately reach out to multiple tens of thousands of producers worldwide. The decision to make use of online services is increasingly made by the users themselves. Often the IT-department is not even aware of it. This introduces additional security risks. Business and IT will have to align to make sure that data security and integrity remains guaranteed. Monica de Wit, management consultant specializing in cyber security and business continuity shares her advice on this topic. Technological innovations are scary for some, while others recognize the opportunities. How will your organisation, your colleagues react? Are they willing and able to be flexible as a speedboat? Or will they remain as conservative as an oil tanker? We discussed these concepts with Menno Lanting, the writer of the management book Oil Tankers and Speedboats. Hopefully, this move IT issue clearly shows that it’s not the right technology, but the human effort and corporate culture that will make the difference when using the technology well. Companies with the right technological innovation, who manage to please their end-users by making their life easier and giving more fun, are tomorrow’s winners. We love to support you in realizing that goal! PETER HORSTEN Co-Founder Goyello / Managing Director #moveITgoyello
