Q: What keeps enterprise IT from maximizing cloud use?
A: [One thing is that] the underlying technology is quite different.

Cloud forces them to shift to a different perspective entirely, one that focuses on integrating and managing services. They have to ensure they have the skills to manage, broker, govern, and monitor services instead of just technology. Contract management and SLA negotiations become priority.
