IABM introduced a new ‘Start-Up’ membership category in January this year. As its name suggests, the new membership category is designed to cater for new companies that have been incorporated for less than two years, enabling them to benefit from the full range of IABM membership services to support them at a critical time in their growth and development, all at a manageable price for what are typically cash-poor, ideas-rich businesses. We asked Ian Sharpe, CEO of Promethean – one of the new Start-Up members – to let us in on the secrets of getting a new company off the ground successfully. That he replied with his insightful answers within just one hour speaks volumes; as he said, “You don’t start-up by sitting on your hands!”.
The trend towards virtualization of server-based applications, so they can run on a converged compute stack anywhere – cloud or on-prem – is well established.

But what’s the real state of play? We spoke to eight IABM members to find out what their end-user customers are actually doing now in the cloud, what they’re not, whether it’s public, private or hybrid, and where the future will take us. Are we truly heading towards a dematerialized industry, and if so, what’s holding us back today?
