Re: A step-by-step approach to the cloud

Nadhan, thanks for your comment and for providing the link the Forbes article where your insights are featured. Your points are well taken, especially as you are quoted saying that the “absence of an SOA strategy is likely to result in the uncontrolled proliferation of unstructured services across the enterprise.” It’s important to remember that applications need to be thought of as services that are delivered to the business—and that they can end up duplicated (causing inefficiencies and expenses) if there is no strategy in place.

Jillian, Great post that provides a simplified view of the key steps to be taken to go to the cloud.   Especially your comment that "it is important to have a long-term vision for how you’re incorporating the opportunities of cloud", resonates with me.  It brings home the strategic measures that need to be taken in advance before taking the administrative and academic steps of going Iaas, SaaS etc.  Forbes Blogger, Joe McKendrick expands on one of my other posts in this space in this article on Cloud Computing being a game change for your company.
