Introduction
 Tablet apps have created a mindset in the user-community that IT services are both easy to acquireand cheap. Many apps are single user and not highly dependent on interoperation with other IT services. TheCloud has created a ‘plug and go’ perception in the user’smind. But as the Cloud drits deeper into organisationsthe underlying complexity in respect o inrastructure andinormation architecture will become painully apparent.It is sae to say that the ease o access to IT servicesgoing orward will be inversely proportional to the ensuingcorporate headache, unless IT and business leaders realisethat the implementation o Cloud services requires careulmanagement. This paper will explore this rom a user, workplace andtechnology perspective. It will also make recommendationsthat will increase the likelihood that the transition to the Cloudembraces the evolving needs o 21st century organisationsand maintains your personal business relevance.
Considerations – Users
 There was a time when users simply harnessed IT in a dispassionate manner to automate repetitiveelements o their business processes. Thanks to the Cloudthe users have options to the extent that their choice o application is almost a liestyle statement. This may be slightly overstating it, but the reality is that BYOD(Bring Your Own Device) is simply the start o what youmight call BYOS (BYO Services). I your organisation intendsto acquire the sales team rom a rival then the HR unctionneeds to be braced or the act that they may well demandthat their migration is conditional on the use o their preerredCRM system.In an increasingly talent-short market, the IT department willhave no choice but to accommodate what might appear tobe Diva-esque behaviour. Social media access will also behigh on the demand-list, both as a business and personaltool. Such is the blurring o the work-lie boundary. Thesetools must be available when and where the user needsthem. Convergence o social media, mobility and theCloud is happening and it needs to be designed into thecorporate inrastructure. As users migrate rom being organic cogs in the corporatemachine to ree-thinking creative decision makers, they will want to have access to tools that help them learn about thepast and predict what will happen in the uture. The data-poolrom which they draw inerences is becoming more complex, varied and deeper. Business intelligence and big data needto be actored into the Cloud strategy. As technology becomes inused into every aspect o theusers’ world, managing these empowered clients in terms o their requirements/expectations becomes more challenging.IT leaders need to develop the necessary sot competences.Social skills are just the tip o the iceberg. Sociological andanthropological skills will be required.
