who are grappling with the challenges, risks and rewards of migrating
operations to the cloud. The free eBook, "New Rules: Running Your
Business From the Cloud," offers an objective step-by-step guide to
evaluating, choosing and implementing the right cloud strategies for
organizations looking to benefit from cloud technologies.
"Whether you're running a small or midsized business, have
aspirations to start one, or are flat out frustrated by outdated and
complicated software, by the end of this book you'll be equipped with
the know-how to manage your organization successfully from the
cloud," said author Richard Minney, a 20-year ERP consultant and
co-founder of iBE.net. "With the downward pressures on IT budgets and
the thirst for mobile and collaborative business apps, there's a real
need to run your business in the cloud -- right now."
Laid out In 13 chapters each ending with a list of top takeaways,
"New Rules" follows the business life of a CEO and her chain of
floral shops, revealing the trials and tribulations she faces as her
team navigates the sometimes bumpy road involved with rolling out a
cloud-based business system -- all while keeping costs in check and
her team in a collaborative mindset.
"New Rules" cover such business practices as defining requirements,
creating an IT roadmap, selecting partners, signing contracts,
building teams, designing for the long term, testing, the go-live
process and making continuous improvements.
The eBook makes it clear how a proper investigation of cloud
technologies must start with an air-tight definition of the business
model, then determining what functionality is needed. This is
followed by conducting research that will lead to the best options,
evaluating and comparing those options, and finally implementing one
or more cloud systems.
