Don’t believe (all of) the hype

This column from The Guardian takes the same practical approach to the cloud we were talking about the other day: “Just as an end-user doesn’t care about what model of server is hosting their business’ IT, cloud is simply a means towards a business outcome.”

At the same time, the piece argues for a broad, strategic view of what those business outcomes might be, and emphasizes the need to understand cloud offerings in the particular context of one’s own organization.

All themes we’ll be building on in the weeks and months ahead.
