Careers Supprt System

There are three distinct paths of change that need to be addressed in any move to Cloud-based software as a service (maybe also for IAAS or PAAS) - changing the technology (the bit that IT teams are most experienced in); changing the business (which we've talked about for a decade, but have struggled to realise); and changing the IT Team (which is often overlooked entirely)

About this map

A work in progress... I've been asked to pull together a seminar for the Cloud Circle group. This map pulls together thinking about what it might look like, and links out to other materials and articles I've written in the past few years. Feel free to edit, add comments, ask questions...
