    Here is a link to a CIO magazine article that I thought might be of benefit to the SIG. While this is a little specific to the Federal Government, I believe there may be some of this that is applicable to the Oil and Gas Industry. Let's discuss this in the discussion thread.

    Thanks for sharing this article Betsy. The title "Federal CIOs need help with legacy-to-cloud transition" reminds me of similar stories from our industry. The following quote also rings a bell for me coming from the oil & gas industry: "Increasingly, CIOs have been looking at a modular, agile model for developing software and applications and shifting away from what's sometimes called the "big-bang" mode, where agencies embark on complex, multi-phase projects that are prone to cost overruns, blown deadlines and often results in a subpar final product."

    Do others agree with this? How do you think "we" in the Oil & gas industry are doing with regards to transistioning from legacy to cloud?
