One question

Q: What keeps enterprise IT from maximizing cloud use?

A: [One thing is that] the underlying technology is quite different. Customers have to transition from a monolithic approach in which their perspective is on technology categories and a hierarchical stack, (e.g., servers, network, storage, etc.). 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. Customers changing to multi-vendor, multi-supplier environments need a way to maintain governance and control, while still adding value to the business.
