Excellent reasoning and I agree whole heartedly. Those who front end their "Cloud" with an application that has utility have tended to do better than those simply expounding the virtues of the cloud as an outsourced IT model based on lower cost.

Building a service oriented architecture internally and delivering a private cloud is a different story and something all IT organizations should be aspiring to.

    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
