These are the slides from my talk at the 17th CIMA-Loughborough Shared Services Forum in Newcastle on 26th September 2013. I introduce some of the changes and challenges posted by Cloud Computing, Post-PC, Bring (or Choose) Your Own Device, and so on. I also feature some case studies of work that we have been involved with, and offer some pointers to the way forward.
