Success or failure of a cloud computing project, be it a simple SaaS implementation, or a complex legacy application migration, or anything in between will hinge on the technical knowledge, skills, and training of your IT staff. What many CIOs and aspiring cloud project managers don't realize is that winning approval to start a cloud project can be one of the most difficult aspects of the project. Further complicating this is the fact that technical knowledge is not the most valuable asset in overcoming this cloud challenge. How you present the project, how you sell it, is the secret sauce for getting cloud projects approved. We wrote a full blog post on this topic that you can find here. It's been so popular; we also decided to make a companion SlideShare. In it, we quickly break down the issues, show you how sales and presentation skills help, and give you strategies to start honing those skills so that you can get approval for your next cloud project. Enjoy!
