  • Get hands-on experience with cloud computing and experiment with it.
  • Learn how the cloud can help your business and help foster your own professional growth.
  • Understand that cloud computing, like other ‘disruptive technologies,’ doesn’t spell the end of IT.
  • Lead by example, and envision yourself as a concierge for end users.
