Nearly all of the TCBC working groups have now completed a second round of discussions, and the progress has been really remarkable! Many thanks to all who have contributed their time and ideas to the process.
To expose some of the great insight coming out of these sessions to non-members (and to members active in other groups), we decided to publish the initial draft of the "definition" section of the Planning for the Cloud/Cloud Strategy: SMB group. It does an excellent job of showing how the process is working. A cross-functional team including Brandon Kolybaba of Cloud A, Alex Sirota of NewPath Consulting, Jeff Lamboy of GoDaddy and Ashroff Khan of FORREC Ltd. did a terrific job of elucidating the key issues in SMB cloud strategy and planning. Our second meeting - like that of most of the TCBC working groups - expanded on this base by examining the most important SMB business issues addressed by cloud strategy, and started to identify best/proven practices for success in this area.
We are trying to balance between recognizing that these documents are draft until complete and wanting to share important outcomes with the GTA/Canadian cloud community. We'll likely be selective with these kinds of posts, but we wanted to recognize some of the great work that's underway in the TCBC!
