For years, IT departments have organized their processes, employees, and business relationships around owning and operating the core IT assets in an enterprise. The current wave of cloud services can have a powerful effect on enterprise IT, with the potential for significant cost savings and operational efficiencies. To achieve these benefits, IT departments will have to integrate new ways of thinking about how IT resources are delivered.
In his General Session at Cloud Expo New York, Scott Thomas, Vice President, Sales Engagement at Terremark, a Verizon Company, discusses the major factors driving cloud adoption for the enterprise, relating how the adoption of cloud technologies is changing the way IT departments will operate, and reviewing case studies showing how businesses have used cloud services to achieve these benefits.
Scott Thomas is responsible for leading cloud sales for small and medium enterprises, sales operations and global complex bids and response teams. His duties include the sales force capacity forecast, the optimization and alignment of sales territories and the management of sales training, enabling the sales teams be more engaged with customers.
With nearly 15 years of experience in complex infrastructure services, his career has been focused on organizing sales teams and processes to help customers succeed by driving them to high-quality decisions. Prior to joining Terremark, Thomas served as Business Development Principal Leader at CSC, a global provider of technology-enabled business solutions and services. Previously, he was a Sales Executive at Rackspace and an early member of the Data Return team.
