Cloud computing and the role of the CEO

At a glance

Cloud computing can help CEOs innovate and gain advantages over competitors.

The chief executive can set the tone for cloud strategies to deliver competitive gains and grow the business.

With a third of CEOs worldwide now convinced that their best growth prospects lie in creation of new products and services, innovation is rising in priority across all industries. According to the 2011 global PwC CEO Survey, 78% also expect their innovations to generate “significant” new revenue opportunities over the next three years.

Cloud computing is thus meriting another look as a lower-cost and flexible avenue to spur innovation and gain a competitive edge.
