Cloud Services

38% of 456 business technology professionals in a Information Week survey indicated that they currently use or will consider using services from a cloud provider. This seems much better
Cloud Servicesthan the earlier report from Infoworld that only 2% of CIOs surveyed see cloud computing as a priority. That survey by Goldman, Sachs & Co of 100 managers with strategic-decision-making authority seemed to pour cold water on cloud computing as a viable industry.

Principal analyst with Pund-IT, Charles King, saw this as a message that CIOs were looking primarily to tested, well-understood technologies. He also said that deployments of “hot-button technologies” like cloud computing may slow down.

Personally, I think Goldman Sachs got it wrong. What do you think?

Goldman Sachs got it wrong: ask the wrong question, get a wrong answer. Cloud is good for small,quick-hit applications---stuff that traditional IT does not have methods or resources to deal with appropriately. This was not a response category for the question. So? Besides, 100 "decision-makers" does not a universe make. Tom Lodahl, CogniTech Services Corp.
