While the cloud can be a disruptive force, this global survey, conducted by Harvard Business Review and sponsored by Oracle, shows it is no longer a divisive one. The cloud is emerging as a unifying force that’s forging tighter collaboration between business and IT managers to drive innovation. The survey debunks three myths around implementing a public and/or private cloud strategy, including whether corporate systems need public cloud app data and how aligned IT and business are when it comes to the cloud.
According to Mary Johnston Turner, Research Vice President at IDC; "Breaking down technology specific management as well as data silos also facilitates faster infrastructure and application rollouts, reduces human errors, and improves overall business agility.Cloud based management, monitoring and analytics help to improve collaboration between IT operations and developer teams by stabilizing service levels and monitoring usage to support accurate charge back."

Today more than ever, business wins depend on teamwork. And the teams that make things happen are bigger, more diverse, and more distributed than ever. People are working at home, in coffee shops, and on the road. They span multiple time zones. They use every imaginable device, relying heavily on their mobile phones. They grapple with deadlines because their tools don’t connect. With so much to manage, people are challenged to be truly present and focused in the moment. To make the most of each opportunity and maintain business momentum, they need tools that allow them to work intuitively. Effortlessly. That fade into the background, leaving them free to keep focused, stay engaged, get inspired, innovate. That allow them to connect as if they were in person, when they’re not.
