Building Up from the Ground to the Cloud

In early 2012, Billee Elliott McAuliffe was asked to consult with a new client of the Firm. The client, a newly formed publicly traded company, had been recently spun off from another publicly traded company and had no real information technology infrastructure of which to speak. As it was not burdened by legacy environments or infrastructure, the client could forge a new and innovative IT path forward for itself and its businesses. Over the next two and half years, Billee worked with the client's IT team and negotiated 200+ agreements resulting in a multibillion-dollar company being operated almost entirely "in the cloud."
