As CEO of Cumulus Global, I have a unique opportunity to combine passions and interests into pragmatic solutions that leverage leading-edge technologies and services. I get to sit at the crossroads of small and mid-size business and cloud computing. I have the honor of mixing education with transformational technologies.
Is Google Apps the solution for all small and mid-size business and for every school? No. Will cloud computing delivery tangible results for every potential deployment? No.
Google Apps, and cloud computing in general, are, however, worthy of serious consideration. Smaller organizations can tap the same resources and capabilities of their larger competitors, customers, and vendors. These capabilities enable efficiencies and opportunities that until now required too much time and money. Hence, my evangelical zeal for cloud computing and for Google Apps is tempered by more than 20 years in IT. Having held roles from software engineer and program manager to support director and CIO, I understand that first and foremost, IT solutions need to help organizations achieve their goals and objectives. Features and functions, benefits and values, must fit with operations, needs, priorities, and budget.
The best part of my job is helping organizations grow and thrive by bringing together solutions that not only solve problems, but enable new opportunities.
