Cloud Strategy Manager

| Chicago



Work you’ll do

Cloud provides the opportunity to innovate business practices, improve customer delivery, and create competitive advantage, all through business transformation.  It represents an opportunity to advance core business practices and enable new business capabilities, well beyond a foundational “lift and shift” to public or private cloud.  Financial benefits of a shift to cloud can often fuel the business transformation, enabling parallel IT and business innovation.  Our Strategy and Operations Cloud leaders help solve our client’s most complex issues, to ensure both value creation and business transformation, through transitions to cloud. 

 

 

Our practitioners work collaboratively within integrated, cross-functional teams to deliver business, digital and analytics transformation, enabled through cloud.  Teamwork is crucial as teams are composed of a diverse group of specialists across multiple disciplines from both within our consulting practice and from our clients, helping drive towards a successful outcome.  Our practitioners are expected to own and deliver their respective deliverables while managing different clients and other stakeholders.
