The graphic below says Applications groups are massively adopting the cloud, while IT Ops groups are stuck with their head looking in the wrong place. 24% of Apps have cloud, vs 5% of what IT ops thinks. As I've written before in "Sixteen Digits to Freedom," the cloud is credit card away.
It ends with a threat that if enterprise IT shops don’t adopt the cloud, their developers will likely build their own projects outside of the corporate firewall and leave IT with a mess to clean up if the project becomes a success.
So get your catalog and standards in order - the future is already here.
