To be a Cloud, or not to be a Cloud

leave a comment »

I’m currently undergoing a rigorous study of how certain enterprises in a specific industry should become cloud providers. What I am finding is that it isn’t a question of how, but why!
Becoming a Cloud Provider, in my opinion, is a win-win situation. Not only do you modernize your architecture, make it current and scalable for the future, but you gain revenue and CIO mindshare while at it. (The Service Provider market is supposed to be a huge Billions of dollar market in the next few years).
Then … you’ll find all sorts of great things happening – market adjacencies will open up for your company right out of your own backyard. If you were to subscribe to the thought that what makes companies great comes from inside, than by putting in the infrastructure that allows them to share what’s inside, be it a phenomenal customer service organization (P&G), an efficient supply chain system (Walmart), an accurate demand prediction engine (Amazon), an effective design shop (BMW), you’re opening the ecosystems of business to greatness.
It is what the small business web does, by collaborating by sharing core strengths, each respective company helps one another become stronger.
