Expert interview

Modalek demands: Get back control!

The video interview makes it clear that cloud technologies can do more than just save costs. They deliver speed and flexibility – and they allow companies to regain control of their data. It is a unique opportunity for CIOs.

The cloud cannot be locked out of companies – if the internal IT department does not provide useful answers to the employees’ and business units’ requirements, they will simply set up “shadow IT”. Eduard Modalek is convinced that, when it comes to the cloud, for companies the issue is ultimately the need to regain control of their data. In a video interview, the Swisscom cloud expert explains how this can be done in practice, what opportunities the digitisation opens up for CIOs and how three hundred developers can create two hundred applications in just five weeks.
