How a Software Vendor Weathered the Stormy Journey to the Cloud

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The rise of cloud computing has fundamentally changed the way software companies operate, with many of their products now delivered over the Internet as a service. We describe how “Software Co.,” a traditional software vendor, managed the transition to a cloud-based business model. Its six-year eventful journey involved constant changes to the different organizational areas of the company. The lessons learned from this case study will help other software vendors weather the stormy journey to the cloud.
