New York City, NY (USA), November 05, 2013 -- iBE.net, a developer of cloud and mobile-based business management software, announced the release of its first eBook aimed at small to midsized business owners who are grappling with the challenges, risks and rewards of migrating operations to the cloud. The free eBook, “New Rules: Running Your Business From the Cloud,” offers an objective step-by-step guide to evaluating, choosing and implementing the right cloud strategies for organizations looking to benefit from the latest cloud computing technologies.
“Whether you’re running a small or midsized business, have aspirations to start one, or are flat out frustrated by outdated and complicated software, by the end of this book you’ll be equipped with the know-how to manage your organization successfully from the cloud,” said author Richard Minney, a 20-year ERP consultant and co-founder of iBE.net. “With the downward pressures on IT budgets and the thirst for mobile and collaborative business apps, there’s a real need to run your business in the cloud—right now.”
Laid out In 13 chapters each ending with a list of top takeaways, “New Rules” follows the business life of a CEO and her chain of floral shops, revealing the trials and tribulations she faces as her team navigates the sometimes bumpy road involved with rolling out a cloud-based business system – all while keeping costs in check and her team in a collaborative mindset.
“New Rules” cover such business practices as defining requirements, creating an IT roadmap, selecting partners, signing contracts, building teams, designing for the long term, testing, the go-live process and making continuous improvements.
The eBook makes it clear how a proper investigation of cloud technologies must start with an air-tight definition of the business model, then determining what functionality is needed. This is followed by conducting research that will lead to the best options, evaluating and comparing those options, and finally implementing one or more cloud systems.
With more than 110 copies already downloaded in the first 48 hours, “New Rules” can be accessed at no cost by visiting: http://ibe.net/ebook/.
