McKinsey vs. Booz Allen Hamilton !

A community skirmish reminiscent of the recent “manifestogate” has apparently erupted around the McKinsey & Co. report “Clearing the air on cloud computing“. Booz Allen Hamilton Principals Mike Cameron and Rod Fontecilla have taken the report on with their own analysis.

“The McKinsey report, as presented, seeks to be the ‘other voice’ and offer a contrarian view of cloud computing. The first thing we noted was the statement, on slide 7, that ‘Cloud computing can divert IT departments’ attention from technologies that can actually deliver sizable benefits; e.g., aggressive virtualization.’ This view seems to be an underlying motif in subsequent discussions, yet it is a premise that is not substantiated.”

Read all their comments in the Government Cloud Computing e-zine article.
