Actionable Strategies To Publish Cloud Computing Paper

New York, NY – July 23, 2012 - Actionable Strategies, a boutique consulting firm serving clients globally, has been selected to publish a white paper on the future of Cloud Computing standards for the Cutter IT Journal.  The abstract was developed by Duff Bailey, Practice Director for Master Data Management and Enterprise Integration at Actionable Strategies, and Jeffrey Wu, the firm’s CEO.  The work is based on practical experience with implementing Cloud Computing strategies for firms across a number of industries. 

The paper provides readers with thought leadership on Cloud Computing framed in a larger context.  The historical framework will help senior business and technology leaders understand how future standards will evolve in Cloud Computing.  By identifying business drivers for standardization, the paper helps business and technology decision makers understand how to plan for integration of Cloud Computing into the execution of business strategy. 

“We are proud to work on this important Cloud Computing topic with Cutter.  Cloud Computing has become a significant consideration in enterprise technology strategy, architecture and implementation”, explained Jeffrey Wu, CEO of Actionable Strategies.  “We are pleased to share both our practical work and strategic outlook on Cloud Computing standards based on decades of experience with integration of extended value chains.”

The authors synthesized their outlook based on strategy and implementation projects across industries and varying operating models.  While solidly grounded in reality, the paper is supported by research as cited in the material.  The leaders at Actionable Strategies have been involved in Cloud Computing in the early adoption phase, including projects launching businesses in the application service provider model.

The paper will be published in the Cutter IT Journal edition on The Cloud Computing Standards Battlefield 2012.  Both authors have published articles previously with the Cutter Consortium and other well respected publications.
