Cloud Computing vs SOA: Look For a Cross-over in Hype

Cloud Computing is one of the many things enterprise CIOs, CTOs and other engineers will master in delivering capability


Here are my views of the “So What” of this information.  For the Chief Technology Officer or Chief Information Officer or other enterprise technologist who must really deliver, I’d recommend you brace yourself for a flood of hype.  You have probably already seen indications of this.  But if trends continue the amount of views you (and your bosses) will be asked to consider and deal with will accelerate dramatically.  Your defense against this will be the strength of your own position in Cloud Computing.  Therefore, I strongly recommend you personally think through what Cloud Computing means to your enterprise.  Also, think through your definition of cloud computing.  Hopefully the NIST definition will suit your use, since the more people who form up on that the better.

And you may want to think through which Cloud Computing related events you will attend and speak at.

And you may want to think through you who personally believe the strongest IT players are in the Cloud Computing world.  I have my list.  Let me know if you want to compare notes sometime.

Any thoughts?
