    Demystifying Cloud for CEOs

    In the past, top business leaders tended to delegate technology and IT priorities to specialists, but that is rapidly changing. Today CEOs personally focus on accelerating their journey to the cloud & security in order to digitize quickly and effectively in today's evolving ecosystem.

The transition to the cloud, cyber security represents digitization as a collective-action problem—one that requires a coordinated effort across the team at the top of an organization.
    It’s a matter in which only CEOs can wield the baton.
