On 6 May 2014 at the annual CeBIT Conference, KPMG hosted a distinguished panel of IT professionals to discuss how they are using Cloud to deliver innovation within their complex organisations.


The panel was asked to consider two key themes: how Cloud enables innovation and what should organisations do to fully realise the benefits on offer.


Key insights from the panel

  • Innovation is said to be the last key differentiator for organisations. It’s not just about product and customer outcomes themselves – it’s also about how you deliver those outcomes in an agile and cost effective way.
  • Innovation keeps you on the front foot, driving the market. It’s about new products, doing things differently and changing the customer experience.
  • The Cloud journey often starts easily, with small product development teams but it can scale uncontrollably and bring complexity organisations simply don’t want in an operating environment.
