Ron Dupler, president and CEO of Kittery, Maine-based GreenPages Technology Solutions, No. 154 on the SP500:
Three years ago when this [Best of Breed] Conference started, there was a lot debate around people making bets on where this market was moving and whether those were smart bets. I think today, it's clear where we have to migrate our businesses, so you can talk about ROI all day long, but if you're not making these investments right now, you're dead man walking. It's just how long it's going to be. You can ride your business for another three to five years, but it's going to be a declining business and you're going to have trouble attracting good people in a world where you don't have a lot to say about the cloud.
