“I have been discussing, writing about and working on cloud computing for almost seven years. It takes a lot to shake my basic beliefs about the importance of cloud computing, and how its adoption will radically change — heck, has radically changed — the IT industry. However, every once in a while something happens to remind me that there are more nuances to cloud adoption than any one person, or even group of people, can fully ascertain.

Most recently, I was reminded that “cloud adoption” isn’t a single path, and we as industry practitioners (vendors, service providers and customers alike) have to be very careful how we generalize the use of cloud computing in business.

About three months ago, I was asked to speak at the Insight Integrated Systems Real Cloud Summit in Long Beach, Calif. IIS is a value-added reseller of hardware and software solutions, and they kindly asked me to come speak about cloud and its affect on operations models. The RealCloud audience was primarily medium size businesses (between 500 and 10,000 employees), and I jumped at the chance to meet a segment of the IT industry with which I rarely interact.”
