Gartner Research is the only IT research informed by both the technology end user and provider’s perspectives. We use our research as the basis for our Consulting solutions, methodologies and tools; and, we leverage our research and our industry ‑ leading analysts, as needed, throughout our Consulting engagements. So, when our clients buy Gartner Consulting, they are buying Gartner Research ■Articulating a clear ICT Value Proposition that is framed such that cloud opportunities are highlighted appropriately is a foundational pillar in approving and executing change. Without evidence to secure informed consent to an updated ICT Value Proposition there is a danger that Cloud opportunities are missed, or pursued for inappropriate reasons ■A clear view of what changes to make to ensure the organisation is better able to recognise, evaluate, decide and execute on Cloud initiatives (and the rationale for making such changes) Prerequisites ■There are no prerequisites to this service Any Additional Information ■There is no additional information related to this service
