Your cloud adoption effectiveness derives from both sponsors’ top-down mandates and bottom-up momentum from your teams’ cross-functional collaboration.


Your ability to continuously learn is determined by both efforts to upskill your IT staff and knowledge shared by third-party contractors and partners.
