While most of the businesses represented on the panel employ a hybrid model of each, all agreed on the increasing importance of cloud and BYOD within the enterprise.

"There are so many cloud options that everyone should find a cloud," said Stefkovsk. "Don't be afraid at the start to try things, sign up to trial services to see if it works for you, touch base with the account management team, find the best way to do things, and, if something doesn't work, change it."

"Don't confuse a tool with a solution," added Teahan.
