Cloud computing is a means, not an end.

Last week I was at HP Discover where I had the opportunity to talk to many customers. It’s always good to be able to hear first-hand what is top-of-mind for CIO’s and other IT leaders. Obviously the term cloud came up often, but it was always discussed as a means to reach an objective, not as an end in its own right.Understand why.

HP Discover - Day 3 - Cloud is no longer at the center of the discussion

The one thing that hit me while talking to customers at Discover is that the discussion is no longer about cloud, It's no longer about whether to go to cloud or when to go to cloud, it's about how to get there. Infrastructure as a service is a given, the discussion moves to the applications, to the environments to transform and evolve them. I have never talked devops as much as these last three days. This is a fundamental shift. It demonstrates two things to me, first, cloud is going mainstream, and second, IaaS is quickly becoming a commodity.

Interactions with customers confirmed the overall impression, IT is fundamentally changing, we are on a way to a different approach to information, functionality and services. And the journey is just starting.

Many companies are confronted with the need to reduce IT costs and improve responsiveness to business demand. In doing so they think about cloud computing as the magical solution that will address all needs. And yes, getting a server in the cloud for 3 cents per hour seems a dream. And being able to source as many as you need only adds to it. Unfortunately, the reality often turns out to be rather different. So, how can enterprises achieve their objectives while ensuring they can build the environment of the future?
