Re: Why Bother With Cloud Computing?

Like any other big change affecting business and IT, if cloud, in its many forms, gains traction, then adopters will require a lot of rationales, incentives and measurable returns to keep progressing successfully. But just as the definition of cloud computing itself can elicit myriad responses, the same is true for why an organization should encourage cloud computing. The major paybacks are not clearly agreed upon, for sure. Are the paybacks purely in economic terms? Is cloud a route to IT efficiency primarily? Are the business agility benefits paramount?

Title sums it up perfectly, the concept has been around for decades only now marketing have got involved now throw in a few cool terms like SOA or SaaS and suddenly your missing out.

First they said look at the wonder of these high end centralised computers....only to be told were wasting all of this decentralised processing power lets harness the desktop only to hear look at these scalable "centralised" computing centres only to wait to hear but what about quaternary computing on distributed systems...hmm risk mitigation of decentralised systems you control, lets call it distributed computing.

I would love to see a real cost benefit analysis of the constant rewriting of software to take advantage of the next big thing.

It takes our company 1 second to produce 1 widget however we have now spent millions and can comfortably sit in tech conferences sounding great as we moved to the cloud and we can now produce 1 widget in 1 second....progress

Seriously it's just the "next big thing" to be superseded in the next ten to fifteen and become yesterday's joke.

I can't imagine how inefficient house building would be if we hanged the carpenters tools every couple of years
