Six months ago, I went on record* as saying:
In eighteen months, no-one will be talking about “the Cloud”.
I may have to re-qualify that statement:
If your business plan has the word “cloud” in it, you’re doing it wrong.
The point here is that “cloud computing” is not Web 3.0, or a revolution in IT architecture, but much more about economics and risk.
As usual, Bob Lewis says it better and is more deserving of my Prophet Hat.
* ok, maybe it isn’t written down anywhere. But I said it out loud at least once.
