    The rapid advance of cloud computing has changed the fundamentals of IT investment planning. Roadmaps once defined by stable depreciation and upgrade cycles now have timelines between 12 and 18 months – and have to support business "digital" planning horizons that are even shorter. Shifts in business demand for technology have led to both acceleration and slowdowns in investment, due to changing perceptions of value and risk. In this talk, CEB's Mark Tonsetic will review how the economics of cloud computing are and aren't changing, and the three major shifts this entails for IT investments across the next 18 months:
    • How "cloud-first" strategies will change default investment options for digital development
    • Why the bar for investment skepticism is rising inside the corporate data center
    • Why investments in network architecture will be at a premium – but also pose a challenge to investment planning
