Doing cloud correctly requires a cloud enabled workforce

Part of the Architecting the Cloud podcast series

The future of work is changing, and cloud adoption is accelerating that change. Smart companies will reconfigure their workforce and reevaluate their relationships with workers. By doing so, they can take advantage of the inevitable shift in workforce culture.

Want cloud success? Rethink your workforce

Getting the technology right is often the main focus of cloud deployment. However, as organizations try to adopt the cloud at scale, they often run into workforce bottlenecks. In this episode of the podcast, Mike Kavis and guest, Deloitte’s Martin Kamen, discuss how organizations that are adopting the cloud need to rethink their future workforce to create cloud fluency. Specifically, companies need to understand how work itself is changing, how the workforce is changing to keep up, and where that workforce will come from. Mike and Martin also discuss how leadership can address, manage, and take advantage of the huge cultural shifts that are inevitable as cloud adoption grows.

When we think about the future of work, we think about how IOT, how digital, how analytics, how cloud enables a whole new way of working and changes to the workforce and changes to even where work is done.Martin Kamen is the national leader of the Human Capital IT Transformation practice at Deloitte. He helps companies manage and prepare leaders and employees for large-scale business transformation.
